2016-02-12

By selecting GEOCONCEPT technologies to complement its own Field Service Management platform, Majikan, a subsidiary of NovaVeolia, is providing a “turnkey” scheduling service for optimizing and tracking field technician callout rounds. 

Paris, 03 February 2016: GEOCONCEPT, the leading designer of geographical optimization technologies for professionals, is today announcing that Majikan, a specialist in managing multi-business field callouts, has chosen to incorporate Opti-Time round scheduling technologies into its global Field Service Management platform. The NovaVeolia subsidiary will thereby be offering a “turnkey” scheduling and technical callout tracking service based not only on the most advanced digital scheduling and mobility tools, but on a team of 150 multi-business schedulers as well.

Majikan, a Veolia Group company, committed to optimizing technician movements

Majikan has developed a global Field Service Management platform comprising both modules developed in-house (work planning management, mobile application, activity monitoring and reporting) and GEOCONCEPT’s Opti-Time geo-optimization solution (from customer service schedule and appointment booking management to optimizing movements on the ground via the definition and consideration of business constraints).

Majikan’s 150 schedulers help its customers to manage their schedules and optimize their technicians’ rounds. Possessing real business expertise, these schedulers add real value to the technology platform, which spans the entire Field Service Management value chain. 

Veolia’s water industry business in France is the first to benefit from the service being offered by Majikan, covering eleven million callouts annually and 6000 staff on the ground requiring scheduling each year to optimize maintenance rounds for the maintenance of water meters and networks, water production and treatment plants.

“Apart from the water sector, the service Majikan provides is a multi-business one targeted at customers and markets as varied as local authorities, housing associations, the energy, telecoms and HVAC sectors and, more generally, any infrastructure and network owner or manager” said Taïsei Miura, Majikan's CEO

“We are delighted that Majikan has opted to incorporate our technologies into its global Field Service Management platform. Our scheduling solution’s algorithms will enable Majikan’s customers to increase productivity by more than 30%, while at the same time greatly reducing operating costs”, said Patrick Chauvel, GEOCONCEPT’s Sales Director.
