Field Service Management API by PTV xServer

Why is field planning essential?

  • Determine the ideal location of your next branch, depot or distribution office. Cluster sales and distribution territories that facilitate efficiency. Plan customer visits in a way that minimise driving times: As many different scenarios are possible, solving these optimisation problems is challenging. PTV xServer helps balancing the different factors to find the optimum solution.

    The PTV xServer Field Service Management API is a software developer component, available as a cloud-based service or an on-premise solution. Due to its standardised interface, the component can be easily integrated into an existing field management architecture.

Features

  • Ensure your field staff spends most of their time with your customers

    Create visit plans that consider all relevant restrictions, customer requests and visit frequencies. Receive exact daily and weekly schedules, optimised to reduce your employees’ driving times.

  • Plan optimal locations

    Plan depots, branches and offices that are optimally located based on your customers’ locations or determine the accessibility based on spatial and temporal distances around your existing location.

  • Make the best use of your sales resources with smart territorial planning

    The PTV xServer Field Service Management API determines the optimal number and distribution of sales territories for you. It factors in sales potential, turnover, number of customers and employee workload and suggests balanced sales territories. Additionally, the API allows you to include framework criteria like existing customer relationships, area size and residential locations of the sales resources. Even natural barriers like mountains, lakes and rivers without bridges or adequate road connection can be considered by using the underlying road network.
