Multi Worker Jobs (vWork enterprise feature)

13 November 2017

You can now quickly and easily add extra workers to a standard job with our enterprise plan feature.

Our new multi worker feature allows you to add extra workers to a job. This means you can quickly book out big jobs with many staff, track and schedule apprentice workers and trainees.

As soon as you add sub workers to a job, we generate there own simple job with the address and job details already populated. You can even set them a separate start times and dates.

We link the jobs all together and provide visibility on the status of the sub jobs.

For complex sub jobs with dependencies etc you should look into our projects feature.
If you need any detail on how this works please take a look at this help article here.

vWork Route Optimization

11 May 2017

Save time, fuel and automate your dispatch decisions with our new Enterprise feature.

The Problem
Time is money for transport firms. Trucks and staff are expensive, so inefficient deployment costs real money and stops you taking on more paying work. This means less revenue and more costs.

The Solution

The vWork online optimisation tool matches delivery schedules against capacity and constraints to build the most efficient schedules. This means you can do more work in less time, or with fewer trucks.

Key Benefits
The vWork optimisation tool takes into account driver’s hours, skills, locations and available capacity to create a set of routes that accomplishes the most amount of work in the least possible time. Applicaton is simple, simply draw a fence around jobs on the map and select your resources – the tool does the rest.
Operators can also use it to work out how to use less trucks or workers to fulfil a given set of work in a defined timeframe. Usage so far has indicated typical efficiency gains of around 20%.

Use of the vWork optimisation tool will reduce fuel usage, increase efficiency, and reduce the amount of time dispatchers spend planning routes and runs and assigning jobs to vehicles.

Route Optimization

Control the release of your jobs to your mobile workforce.

3 May 2017

When do you want your mobile workers to receive their jobs? immediately, or on the day of the job?
With vWork you can now control this to suit your business.

Our new controlled job release feature lets you choose to have your jobs show on the workers phones immediately, on the day of the work or any other custom time.
This keeps mobile schedules clear and reduces upcoming jobs getting delayed to the next day or later.

Controlled release
