Utility fleets are typically focused on the systematic maintenance of distributed assets and emergency repair of same when services have been compromised through failure, accidental or environmental damage.
This sector represents a relatively complex operating environment, involving Lone Workers, a range of diverse vehicular and portable assets, operating in often stressful and time critical scenarios.
Effective utilisation of people with respect to their fatigue levels, training and availability, combined with the requirement to operate vehicles at all times in an effective, efficient and safe manner, present key operational challenges in both scheduled and emergency maintenance scenarios.
The range of operating environments, deployment scenarios, and enterprise data requirements to be found across the industry, drives a bespoke approach to each Customer. Key in this sector, is the requirement to integrate field data of specific Customer interest, across mixed fleets in diverse operating environments.
We enable visualisation of these bespoke vehicle attributes and the status of lone and remote workers as either drivers or pedestrians; supporting enterprise integration of this data where it may be required, for scheduling and reporting purposes.
Defence & Emergency Services
Defence force and emergency services requirements share a common thread of situational awareness, focused on Lone Workers and teams of service personnel in either training or real life situations.
Deployment scenarios and terrains vary significantly, driving a range of hardware and communication systems requirements to be integrated and visualised on a common platform.
Visibility of vehicles, mobile assets and people in relation to each other, and real time reporting of the key attributes of each, requires seamless integration of multiple devices types and communication systems on a common operating platform.
Exception management driven by asset status, is critical for the effective management of large and diverse fleet elements, often requiring the services of an Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) to meet Customer operational requirements.
Our integrated Lone Worker and IVMS solutions enables a range of operational risks to be cost effectively addressed on a common virtual map visualisation and decision support platform. Where required, the system architecture supports enterprise integration using standard web services based interfaces, and EOC monitoring.
Mining & Exploration
Out-of-pit activity is typically exploration and maintenance focused, with deployments often in remote and hostile environments. IVMS and Lone Worker requirements invariably require a satellite channel for delivery, and the increasing requirements for real time data, demands full system functionality across this interface.
Roles and operating environments are diverse; surveyors, geologists, drillers and drivers, all operating with significantly varying risk profiles and requiring solutions that respond to their individual circumstances and hold up in environmentally challenging operating conditions. IVMS functionality and reporting requirements are shaped often by global corporate specifications.
Our integrated Lone Worker and IVMS solutions enables a range of operational risks to be cost effectively addressed on a common virtual map visualisation and decision support platform.
Scheduled reporting may be customised to suit corporate requirements and analytics available for bespoke analysis.
Where required, the system architecture supports enterprise integration using standard web services based interfaces, and EOC monitoring.
Corporate & Government
Insurance, banking, agribusiness, remote nursing and health personnel are often equipped with portable mobile computing devices to fulfil their field role.
The integration of lone worker protection strategies with existing mobile computing equipment, augmenting with specific devices for specific risks, both communicating over satellite where required into a single visualisation platform, represent the key challenges for this market.
Our solutions incorporate a family of devices; from smartphone apps through to our industrial UHF and satellite combined platform for high risk environments.
All are visualised on a common platform and may be monitored externally by an EOC.
Service & Transportation
Where driving is the key task, either long haul or field service, effective management of driver behaviour, fatigue and associated alerts, is key for driver safety and fleet efficiency.
A heavily regulated sector, transport and service is awash with solutions responding to specific regulatory requirements. The sector often requires integration with transactional elements such as EFTPOS and typically requires electronic log books meeting specific requirements for Fringe Benefit Tax (FBT) reporting purposes.
Against this regulatory backdrop, sensor functionality is increasingly becoming line fit, marginalising those suppliers with vertically integrated solutions that cannot be dis-aggregated.
Our solutions engage this sector where our unique ability to shape our IVMS solution to meet a specific requirement, creates leverage and value for the Customer. Increasingly fatigue is being recognised as a major risk, with correlation to driver behaviour, associated risk taking and degradation of operational efficiencies.
