The quest for efficiencies and savings never ends and Collective includes a number of tools to help you minimise costs and increase productivity.
The planning tools show exactly where you have spare capacity at each time of year, right down to individual crews on specific days. The information automatically includes the effects of alternative schedules for Bank Holidays and other exceptions.
Collective goes even further, allowing any number of ‘trial plans’ to be created. Whether you need to know the cost implications of a new housing development, the savings from reducing the frequency of street sweeping or effects of a new shift pattern, Collective makes it easy. Even better, the scenarios you have trialled can be made live immediately or scheduled for some future date without having to be set up again.
Finding the optimum routing for a given workload is not just about finding the shortest path. It is essential to balance workloads to maximise the efficient use of resources. Collective integrates tightly with the RouteSmart high-density modelling and optimisation system to produce typical savings of 10% to 15% on many different types of work, including domestic and commercial waste, mechanical sweeping, leaf clearance and highways jobs.
Collective is the only application in its sector with standard live integration to Routesmart, enabling rapid optimisation of work.
Routelink is an additional integration module for Collective which allows it to optimise trade waste rounds, bulky collections and other variable work daily to maximise profit and reduce costs.
