It all boils down to this: PatchMap cuts a hole in this wall which makes the route to the end almost without curves. Would you prefer to follow the others … or use this newly created, significantly easier way ?
This refinement allows you to visualise on a map all the worksites that you’ve worked at … last month, last year, for ever … your choice. Not only can you see where they were but who you were working for, what kind of job it was, dates you were there, and three or four more other parameters. You can connect to any documents for that job; from bids to end value to job specific returns/bills/reports even other PatchMap files.
So a customer calls wondering how many jobs over a particular amount and of a particular type over the course of some arbitrary length of time … how long would that take for you to squeeze the answer out of your system right now? With PatchMap Dispatch working on the MapBuddy platform, you could dial it in while doing small talk ! … not only that but you could grab the information in a file that was nearby another job and be able to bid it in half the time you’re doing it in now because you have ready access to the old information.
So … that never happens to you but it sure would be nice to have a better handle on job logistics … from routing to the nearest hospital to put into your daily ERPs (emergency response plans) to where the camps or drilling rigs or waste facilities or plantsites … well you name it, are … to be able to look them up ONCE and save all your doodlings to a singular place so you don’t have to do it all over again. I’m sure that you have a system now … but what if your new system had 175,000 kilometers more roads in it so that you could actually route all the way from one location to another instead of it being a half assed guess? … maybe you’re moving over dimension loads and need road bans or need to travel slower than the normal speeds … well just turn on the road ban layer (even links straight to those who can take care of the permits) … or adjust the speeds in our tooling and so that you have accurate travel times ! NO OTHER SYSTEM can do this for you ! (they can’t change the speeds when they don’t have the roads to begin with!)
We know that looking over a website that has a lot of different offerings that look very similar to each other, even if they have documentation like we do, is just so confusing that you really just want to talk to someone … well please pick up the phone or fire us a quick email asking for a call back and we will dive into what you are doing, determine which of our PatchMap products would best serve your situation, or maybe you need something we don’t supply … heck, we will point you in the correct direction, connect you with others who would be able to help your situation.
Basically, if it has anything to do with GPS or GIS and you’d like to understand things better … CALL !
