2 ISV Independent Software Vendor focused on solutions for the mobile workforce. Strategic focus on strong partners; Siemens, Ericsson, Sogeti, IBM, T-Systems, FältCom, STT System, Nokia, ICA,.

3 Handling the life cycle of a work order Using efficient real-time tools for cooperation, planning, scheduling and reporting. Customer Planner/Dispatcher Mobile Personnel Call center

4 Benefits for the customer Increased customer loyalty Get the job done on time, every time Customers always informed Enhanced on-site decision making More qualified work assignments Shortened lead times Reduce outage/emergency dispatch times Eliminate penalty cost for not meeting service level agreements Increased revenue Service more customers weekly More work tasks/individual Additional sales Start billing earlier Standardized work processes Efficient work methods Higher Quality Reduced costs Eliminate paper work Efficient task management Reduce mileage Make optimal use of subcontractor

5 Product The (Blå Coordinator) solution increases field force productivity and service delivery levels through real time wireless communications associated with powerful and scalable mobile workforce (job allocation, scheduling and optimization) capabilities. IBM, gasNatural Press Release 2005.

6 Benefits Obtained by Gas Natural Improved productivity of all the field operations personnel (with impact in cost reduction). Improved user satisfaction. Improved quality and quantity of information. Mobility Solution standarization. Clear ROI based on a business case with tangibles business benefits. More efficient use of subcontractors

7 IBM & isMobile Case study Gas Natural (utility) First phase of project with IBM/isMobile consists of users An average of W.O. /day are handled thru the solution. Each Engineer doing on 5-8 tasks per day Mix of Emergency calls/break fix, short term scheduling requirements Emergency calls are registered in Siebel Preventive maintenance work orders are created in SAP PM. Emergency & Preventive work orders are sent to Blå Coordinator for Scheduling, dispatching, execution and reporting. More than hundred types of different paper reports were used before starting to use Blå Coordinator. After the introduction of Blå Coordinator all these report types are handled electronically in a PDA.

8 isMobile Case study - Essent Leading utility company in The Netherlands Mix of Emergency calls/break fix, short term scheduling requirements and inspection service and meter reading Selected Blå Coordinator as their MWF system based on RFQ result in competition with other leading vendors High flexibility, adaptive mobile forms, advanced scheduling and easy change management important criteria's Using SAP as ERP system

9 Product The (Blå Coordinator) solution increases field force productivity and service delivery levels through real time wireless communications associated with powerful and scalable mobile workforce (job allocation, scheduling and optimization) capabilities. IBM, gasNatural Press Release 2005.

Flexible cost models Mobile Solution Powerful reporting/Data capture with validation Mobile Dispatching & Push notifications Combined on/offline Studio Graphical development tool for Work flow and Report Administration of Calendar, Optimisation, etc Integration Adapter XML – based Configurable Message based integration with SAP/Siebel/etc Blå Coordinator Family PR PP TGTG TGTG D/S SE SR B B Service Process

13 Product features Mobile execution & reporting Flexible information and reporting capabilities Push notification of important assignments (SMS or GPRS) On/off-line support Flexible synchronization configuration Advanced filtering capabilities Intergration with terminal specific equipment. GPS,RFID, Barcode, Printer.... Integration with adtional software on terminal GIS, Navigator, Drawing,....

14 isMobile Optimization Engine The optimisation engine runs in two phases: 1. Route Construction In order to get feasible solutions fast, the engine makes use of a Multi-start local search framework. Several initial solutions are generated by a fast construction algorithm based on heuristics, where also the number of routes are minimized. 2. Solution Improvement Methods The best solution is further refined by applying improvement heuristics. Constraints: Time window constraints. Earliest & latest time and duration for work orders. Cooperating work orders, i.e. two work orders should overlap. Resource availability constraints. Unique calendar for each resource: working time, breaks at specific geographical position, over-time. Compatibility constraints. Rules that tell which work orders may be performed by which resources, e.g. skills, spare parts, etc. Distance constraints. shortest distance (geodetic) or real-time drive times estimates from external system (e.g. queue, time-of-day). Cost parameters Travel cost. Total distance for all routes. Resource cost. Each resource has individually specified speed and cost for engagement. Preferred resource. You may define the cost for specific combinations of work orders and resources. Work order priority. You may define the cost for a work order not being performed. The objective for the optimization is to minimize cost considering a number of constraints. Examples are:

15 Blå Pocket /Dashboard View information Agenda(today, this week, etc.) Order information like contract, address, quantity, etc. Messages Report/Data capture Real-time status update (accept, on-site, leaving site, closed, etc.) Create reports (activity, time, material,other customized reports) Use Scanner, RFID to input information in reports (Requires customization depeding on terminal) Print workorder/report

16 RFID Example: Report on Coffe Machine Service and Printer Unique Report forms per Service Object. Launched automatically!

17 Work Orders for the Technician Assigned Work orders Work orders in Pool Can be picked by the technician

18 Flexible Report View Pocket Version

19 Flexible Report View Tablet/Laptop Version

20 Example of Integration with GPS and Navigation (Tom Tom, Wisepilot,..)

21 Några frågor för framtiden Optimeringsteknologi Hur ska vi göra beräkningarna ännu snabbare ? Vilken real-tids information ska vi ta hänsyn? Larm sensorer Real-tids trafik information Positioneringsinformation Arbetsstatus ???

22 Några frågor för framtiden Mobila arbetsflöden Vilka plattformar ska vi stödja för dom i fält ? Pocket PC, Windows, Web, Android, Symbian, Iphone, ?? Hur ska vi stödja dessa plattformar ? Vilka verktyg ska vi använda ? När börjar/slutar vi stödja en plattform ? Vilka funktioner måste vi stödja på dessa plattformar ? GPS, Kamera, Cell ID, Streckkoder, RFID? Vilka mjukvaror måste vi integrera med på dessa terminaler ? GIS, Ritverktyg, Navigering, ??
