Kevin Benedict's Video Comments: Optimized Intersections and Mobility

I believe that it is important to understand high level concepts in order to make sense of detailed plans.  Last week, I was in Spain attending a field services related conference and listened to a field services manager explain the importance of teaching service technicians the economics of service businesses.  He wanted his team to understand what it meant to optimize their business, and the role that mobile technologies played in that optimization effort.  I agreed!

In this segment of the Video Comments, I share the concept of Optimized Intersections.  Optimized Intersections consists of the following:

  • Mobilized workforce
  • Latitude
  • Longitude
  • Altitude
  • Time
  • Mobilized Objects
I hope you find this concept useful.
