An encompassing planning process increases efficiency in delivery, collection and other services. Excel-interfaces enable access to all data for further external processing.
You can choose the degree of automisation – manual, as well as automatic opimisation components are at your disposal. This way your orders are prepared quickly and efficiently.  

 

VIOS planning system
Developed as a plannning component for administrating and accompanying service-personell in crafts and in sales, the planning software aids to organise customers, locations and employees.
It is ideal for the organisation of workforces in the field, i.e. by fixing a daily workload via the routing of a service tour, either open-endend, or as round tour, back to the company location.

The system also gives the possibility to group company locations and visualise the according catchment areas or sales areas. Functionalities like displays of taxed highways and streets, a vicinity search for points of interest and adresses and the display of traffic information on the map, complete the intuitive planning experience.
