Providing a real-time view of intervention schedules


With the onset of hypermobility and the development of increasingly powerful mobile devices, the Opti-Time suite is keeping right up with today’s challenges in geographical information by going mobile. Non-connected media and hardcopy schedules can now become a thing of the past, replaced by smart phones and tablets – enabling operational staff on the move in all kinds of business to become more flexible, autonomous and responsive in the field.


Opti-Time Mobile features a whole range of benefits for users seeking to make the most of their itinerant schedule optimization solution:


Efficient

Mobile staff can access clear, realistic schedules that ensure they’re on time – at any time. Diaries, address books, navigational aids and other resources allow users to improve trip planning and be more effective in-field.

Simple

Opti-Time Mobile is compatible with all major mobile operating systems: Android, iOS and Windows Phone. The user-friendly interface makes the software accessible and simple to use. No technical knowledge or specific training is required.

Responsive

Updating completion lists and sending off reports using the app gives schedulers a real-time view of their team’s work and allows them to deal more effectively with any unforeseen circumstances. Real-time access to traffic data also allows operators to optimize journeys and keep their response times to a minimum.

Autonomous

The application is also available in off-line mode to ensure permanent access to data (for instance, when working underground). Users can consult and update information in real time. The system is automatically synchronized as soon as the application reconnects to the Internet.

 

 


“Opti-Time Mobile is one outcome of working closely alongside our clients, whose business and needs are changing as technology develops. Providing a fully-fledged nomad mapping application will enable users to benefit from all our software’s advantages whilst on the move, making them more productive, more flexible, and more responsive in the field,” said Patrick Chauvel, head of GEOCONCEPT’s Mobility division.
