Service modelling: looking at ways to improve winter maintenance
Winter maintenance keeps everything else flowing when the bad weather hits. Efficiency is more important for winter maintenance than it is for many other municipal service providers. This is because the weather is fickle and fast and, without a swift response, it can overwhelm everyday life.
In these changing times, you need a new approach to ensure that you meet your targets and provide a high-level of service. The team at Integrated Skills have experience working with all factors that affect road-based service providers. We know how to streamline your operation and increase efficiency by leveraging the potential of your resources. Where you feel like these are limited, we combine innovation and technology to take you to the next level.
Using what you have
Typical resources for winter maintenance providers include:
- Workforce hours
- Other tools and materials
- Software systems.
If you want to get the best out of the first three items on this list, focusing on the last will help you achieve this. We can help whether you already have a system in place or you’re starting from scratch. We are confident we can improve your workflow with a winter maintenance software package that includes systems like RouteSmart. We provide data solutions including, but not limited to:
- Improving the efficiency of your workforce with new shift patterns, accurate data for training and responsive communications;
- Leveraging the potential of your fleet with better routes, fuel efficiency and maintenance schedules;
- Tracking your outgoings and ensuring that nothing is wasted, and you can justify all your costs when you next need to compile financial reports.
On top of all these standard solutions, you can also anticipate changes over the coming years and see how they will affect your business. See the big issues coming and minimise their impact before they even arrive. All this ensures that your business can face the future of winter maintenance provision with confidence.
