Tics for urban service management.

Many times, we wonder how tics help in managing urban services, types of technology such as positioning or locating systems, container identification systems, weighing for implementing payment for generation, volumetric sensors for detecting the filling of the container and multiple hardware that can help us in Urban Service Management such as waste collection, road/street cleaning, gardening and many more. 

The answer for this questions can be found in a video report that Canal 9 of Valencia did many years ago. We are putting the video at your disposal and hope you like it.

Firstly, we should position our elements whether containers, waste bins, urban furniture or any other urban element, which should be geopositioned. To do that, we offer our application for smartphones and tablets, with GPS signal of the terminal and RFID identification of the element we can locate it together with additional data, which is used for having a complete and precise inventory.

Thereafter, we will carry out daily tasks. Those tasks whether collection, street cleaning, gardening tasks or any other task should be monitored and data obtained to check if those tasks have been performed as productively as possible. Productivity is understood as the task being performed in the best possible way and at the lowest cost.

To do that, our Touch Panel device with identification, weighing or both, is essential. In addition, it will help us dealing with the drawbacks such as holiday periods. To replace that staff, who know how the service should be performed, we make available for our customers a browser as an optional element for Touch Panel devices. That browser will guide us through the containers or incidences to be solved precisely and quickly without knowing the area we are.  

Thus, the main thing for these TICs to have optimum results is to analyse the results obtained with a software, like siGEUS. In this way, modifications to tasks made for optimization can be implemented. With our software and tools provided, the necessary analysis can be carried out for optimising our processes.
