Good day Astreon clients and partners. We trust everyone has had a great summer and are looking forward to jumping into a busy September.
This month we have a lot of new features in our supported applications, along with a new service. You don’t want to miss this one!
Astreon New features and enhancements
Mobile App – New Features
New enhancements to the mobile app have added a bunch of new data points to make managing your fleet from your mobile device easier than ever:
- Vehicle Profile information like vehicle type. For example, Bus, Heavy Truck, etc.
- Expanded date/time information in the history tab
- New Geofences report by group, not just a single vehicle
Event messages that trigger a notification are now visible. An example of this is that a speeding event was triggered. It will now show that speeding even in the Unit history. This is displayed on the map with an icon depicting the event type, location, and time.
Hecterra – Agricultural Management
New Report – By Campaign
To provide a deeper level of management, we have added a new report for campaigns. This report provides detailed information on campaign fulfillment, including every instance of cultivation in each field throughout the season.
Logistics – Last Mile & Task Management
Optimized planning by geofences
A lot of businesses assign work by geographic area. The field employee is responsible for all customers in a certain area, or the driver services just this specific part of a city. These businesses generally have large geofences that segment each service or delivery zone.
Dispatch+ has been enhanced to take into account vehicles assigned to a geofence, and orders or services scheduled in those geofences. This new option when creating a route, only assigns orders in a geofence to a vehicle or a group of vehicles assigned to it.
To leverage this new feature, activate “Planning by geofences” in Settings/Planning. Then go to the new Geofence tab in the Settings.
You can add geofences created in Astreon hosting, filter and delete them in the new tab. You can also attach vehicles to geofences. A vehicle attached to a certain geofence will only receive orders from within that geofence.
Geofences with assigned vehicles can be found in the new Geofences column at the second and third stages of planning, as well as on the Routes and Templates pages.
