Sales and Territory Planning
ORBIT is a complete system for planning and managing visits for teams of sales people, field service technicians, hygiene workers, home care providers, waste collection agents and other types of personnel providing regular and cyclic services to customers.
- ORBIT is a flexible system that allows for both enterprise-level integration with ERP/CRM systems for extensive planning and task assignment, as well as strategic and tactical planning for assessing theoritical scenarios and changes to your scenarios. Regardless of your requirements, ORBIT revolves around your entire sales and service operations.
- ORBIT takes into account numerous real-life constraints to automatically create optimised master routes for periods of a few days up to a few months. ORBIT’s algorithm makes the decision of which resource should service each customer and on what combination of days to achieve the best possible utilisation of your resources.
- The combination of optimisation and visualisation tools allows for quick and detailed what-if analysis. Better planning translates into cost reduction through better resource utilisation and reduced travel distances.
