As well as ensuring that operatives follow and tracks the progress of planned, optimised sweeping routes, SmartSuite Mobile in-cab app, also enables drivers to respond to messages to divert to other high priority tasks for them to complete. Routes can even be re-optimised on the fly and the nearest driver guided to it. Drivers can also report on what they see with jobs automatically allocated to teams, such as, clear a fly tip. Once complete, the driver can be guided back to the planned route and continue where they left off.
SmartSuite can manage the complex bulky waste process from start to finish including inspections (if required), booking a slot by type including POPs (sofa, fridge, washing machine, etc) and allocating automatically the most appropriate crew, day, and time slot. APIs with payment systems ensure that collections only happen after payments are processed.
Crews follow optimised routes and arrive at their service start location on the correct side of the road and in the correct lane. Multiple-passes are directed and completed without overwriting previous data. Two-way communications ensure that drivers are able to report on any service issues and also receive updates from the depot including weather warnings.
