According to Mark Mohun, Business Analyst at Newcastle City Council:
“… we can send out any driver on any route and know that it is being covered properly, and actually have the system tell us what the status is of any particular route. If a section is missed the driver is guided back to complete it unless he inputs data explaining why it is not possible to cover that section. We can also update the routes as the road system changes and as our winter equipment profile changes.”
