If you hire field workers, you constantly face challenges like effectively managing many employees and commissioned tasks. GeoTaskPlanner is a cloud service that automatically assigns tasks to your employees. It handles optimal routing as well as criteria specific to your business, such as the skills and availability of technicians or scheduled due dates. Automatic task assignment improves the planning process and task completion rate, lowers transport costs, and reduces CO2 emission.

Optimal routes

GeoTaskPlanner optimizes routes for fieldworkers using data from the OpenStreetMaps system considering traffic restrictions. There is an option for updating the estimated travel time based on Google Maps traffic data.

Scheduling task assignments

GeoTaskPlanner assigns tasks to your employees, taking into account:

  • Task location, time needed for task completion, and constraints like appointment times
  • Availability and current location of your employees
  • Skills and qualifications required to complete the task

Planning tailored to your business

It’s important to consider your specific requirements when planning task schedules. GeoTaskPlanner considers basic criteria related to tasks and employees but also additional factors, such as:

  • Opening times and availability of the delivery/task location
  • Time of the scheduled appointment with the customer
  • Vehicle cargo capacity
  • Routes spanning several days
