Reduces Operational Costs; Improves Workforce Productivity
WESTBOROUGH, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Limited (OTC QB:VRYAF), a leading provider of software solutions that
optimize and allow for the continuous improvement of service processes
for mobile workforces, announced today that EmiTel has changed the way
work is organized with its implementation of ViryaNet’s mobile workforce
EmiTel is the leading broadcasting infrastructure operator in Poland,
providing radio and TV services. Its broadcasting services are under
very strict service level agreements (SLAs), including response time and
ViryaNet’s mobile workforce management solution (re-branded as FFA by
GE) was selected to help EmiTel improve workforce productivity and
reduce operational costs. Since the full-scale launch of FFA in August
2012, EmiTel has reduced its number of field technicians by more than
40% and the number of dispatchers by 45%.
When selecting a new mobile workforce management system, EmiTel
conducted a proof-of-concept with Globema, a GE implementation partner.
Globema presented a return-on-investment model, based on EmiTel’s data
and working environment. The proof-of-concept verified the capabilities
of ViryaNet’s solution with real, historical data and evaluated the
potential increase in efficiency.
“We wanted a solution with a proven track record,” stated Przemyslaw
Kurczewski, CEO of EmiTel, “The implementation has enabled EmiTel to
achieve the expected benefits, including improving productivity and
reducing operational costs in our mobile workforce operations.”
The ViryaNet solution, which Globema implemented within 7 months in
2012, helps EmiTel improve productivity by automating scheduling and
dispatching tasks, providing up-to-date information on task pickup and
status reporting via mobile devices, optimizing travel by utilizing
vehicle tracking data, and feeding data from our solution to EmiTel’s
ERP system for payroll calculation.
"EmiTel’s success in meeting their business goals and achieving their
expected benefits – in such a short period of time – is yet another
testimony of the business value focus of ViryaNet’s offering,” stated
Memy Ish-Shalom, President and CEO, ViryaNet, “This implementation
demonstrates that Globema’s professionals and ViryaNet’s solution have
helped EmiTel achieve higher workforce productivity and lower
operational costs. Through our partners, we expand our global reach and
our ability to implement ViryaNet's solutions worldwide."
