New technology in iGEO: route optimisation in real time

Route optimisation in real time with iGEO's new technology

iGEO is immersed in a new project that will see the light of day in early 2020: route optimisation in real time. Our goal is to implement a new technology allowing to calculate routes in an optimised, automatic way.

In order to perform a route’s calculation, the algorithm will take into consideration all data that you have entered in the software, such as venue’s schedule, technicians working in the area, road traffic, and many additional aspects. Thus, you will only need to modify a route in extraordinary circumstances.

The economic gains derived from route optimisation in real time will contribute to increasing your company’s profitability substantially.

Drones: the solution to reach isolated locations

drones pest control

Drones are becoming useful, essential tools in multiple aspects of our daily lives. Currently, they are being successfully tested and greatly accepted in pest control.

Using drones in certain circumstances is more effective than human action, especially when they may not access some locations. This is the case of the Galápagos Islands, where some tests are being perform in order to employ this tool in the most efficient way when launching foggers to end a rat infestation harming the ecosystem.

The manageability of these air vehicles is key to access any location. Therefore, thanks to a drone fleet, you may reach a greater area to disinfect, disinsect, derat, or perform any other kind of service.

These may even carry 42-pound pellets and detonate biocides with great accuracy. This is due to the fact that they are flown using a control system operated by specialised technicians in a safe place.

Furthermore, after performing these services, these locations may be monitored in order to verify that the pest has been actually eliminated or that, at least, the expected results are being achieved.

New technologies are bursting into the sector, and we need to rely on them to be able to evolve, to become more efficient when performing services, and to offer everyone first-rate environmental health solutions. To remain up to date about the sector’s news, please check our blog.

Signing documents on the Customer Portal

signing documents on the Customer Portal

Thanks to this new improvement in iGEO, now your customers will have the option to sign documents on the Customer Portal in a quick, direct, trustworthy way.

The documents that may be signed are the following:

-Quotes
-Contracts
-Service certificates
-Biocide use alerts

To enable this option, you will need to check the box ‘signable on Customer Portal’ in an existing work order, or when generating a quote or a contract.

Thus, when your customer logs in to their portal, they will see the sections ‘pending signature’ and ‘signed’ within the documents’ menu. If they go to the former, they will find quotes, contracts, certificates, and biocide use alerts to sign in a quick way with a single click.

After checking the box and clicking on the orange button, the document may be signed

If, instead of a quote or contract, you want a service certificate to be signed on the Customer Portal, you will need to enable the option that appears on the bottom of the document itself.

Therefore, when emailing any of these documents, we recommend letting your customer know that, in order to sign them, they need to access their Portal with the login credentials provided to them.
