CSG required a better method of tracking their vehicles and organising their jobs, as their current paper based system was becoming burdensome. Codegate’s goal was to help automate this process, focusing on the distribution and collection of electronic jobs / tickets to CSG’s fleet of 60 sewage tankers.
The specific aims of the project were:
Codegate focused on two key aspects: Providing a ticket allocation system and providing a proof of collection.
To facilitate these goals Codegate built a planning portal that interfaces to CSG’s existing accounting system to acquire the initial job details. Once planned the jobs will be pushed out via a mobile gateway to the field based PDAs. The PDAs will prompt the driver for the necessary inputs regarding the job, vehicle, and working hours.
The completed information being transmitted from the PDA over the mobile data network, back via the mobile gateway to the central reporting portal. Further customer facing portal development is outside of the scope of this requirement.
There is a subsequent second phase to this project which would involve dry and hazardous waste, which would require a modification to the PDA and planning / reporting system and most likely interface to third party route planning systems.
