Optimising Smart Meter Installation with GeoPal
The Intelligent Solution
GeoPal uses artificial intelligence to "learn" and optimise schedules based on the actual time to complete jobs per technician, live travel times, changing appointment times and resource availability. The mobile app interfaces with electricity smart meters using bluetooth technology allowing technicians to configure the meters from their smartphone or tablet. Using notification messages, GeoPal keeps end-customers informed of expected technician arrival time, prioritising customer experience.
Dynamic Scheduling. GeoPal's smart meter installation management app has at its core a dynamic scheduling engine using AI to recalculate schedules in real-time. In the real world, days rarely go as planned. When customers change appointments, emergency requests need attention, jobs overrun, or technicians get sick, GeoPal automatically adapts the schedule.
Customer Experience. GeoPal's dynamic scheduling solution ensures that more appointments are met on time, leading to better end-customer experience. The application sends notifications to end-customers keeping them advised of technician expected arrival times.
Reduced Travel Time. With GeoPal, routes are automatically optimised, reducing travel times, optimising productivity and minimising the number of resources required.
Reduced Carbon Emissions. Using GeoPal, the Industry reduces carbon emissions by reducing travel time with route optimisation and the total elimination of paper.
Resource Planning. GeoPal’s capacity planning tool shows the anticipated resource level required versus the forecasted resource availability based on annual leave, training and sick leave, optimising resource planning.
Easy Configuration. GeoPal’s mobile app connects with electricity smart meters using Bluetooth, allowing technicians to configure the meters from their smartphone or tablet.
