Plow Ops’ No Risk, No Commitment, Free 60-Day Trial!

CASTLE ROCK, CO — June 20, 2017 — NeoTreks, Inc., a geospatial development company, announces a no risk, no commitment free 60-day trial of Plow Ops, a SaaS-enabled workforce intelligence ecosystem that improves safety and increases efficiency during winter snow plowing operations.

“Many regions of the country experienced historic snow events during this past 2016/17 snow season and we are pleased to offer Plow Ops free of charge for a 60-day trial to help organizations respond to the coming snow events in the 2017/18 snow season,” commented Michael E. Bullock, president and CEO of NeoTreks, Inc.

“Plow Ops provides tremendous improvements in operational efficiency and safety at very low cost – using the smart devices that plow operators already use and no hardware infrastructure costs.”

Plow Ops includes a suite of iOS and Android mobile applications for snow plow operators that dynamically interact with a powerful online cloud service, managed by a business intelligence dashboard for operations supervisors, administrators and public officials. Route assignment and status information is driven from the dashboard to field operators, who can easily and safely report observational data and status back to storm managers.

Highlights of the platform include:

  • A low cost, cloud-based solution, requiring no customer infrastructure. The Plow Ops backend handles all GIS route data, user management with roles-based access for supervisors, administrators, storm managers and more. This means no new investment in server infrastructure and no increase in workload for critical internal IT staff.
  • A map-centric business intelligence dashboard, which allows a supervisor to set up teams in geographic zones prior to the storm and provides live stats (including an automatic route percentage complete for every route) during active plow operations.
  • A full accounting of all operations throughout the course of a snow event, which allows for a reporting debrief to understand the effectiveness of each response.
  • Mobile applications are openly available on the Google Play and Apple App Store, making Plow Ops a “bring your own device” solution. This makes Plow Ops ideal for public organizations that rely on private contractors, who can utilize the smartphones and tablets they already own.

Change the Way You Work: 5 Tips for Digitizing Your Winter Operations

blizzard snow

It has been a tough year with record-breaking snowfall. Now that the snow has melted, it’s time to reflect on how we can improve. Better yet, it’s time to see if digitizing your winter operations can play an impactful role in the work you do. As you start to evaluate the benefits of applying industry “best practices” by digitizing your winter operations, here are some guidelines to help you select a potential digital solution:

1. Is the solution simple, with little or no training involved?

Any digital solution you select should be intuitive, come feature-rich out of the box, require no on-premise hardware or software, require minimal to no IT support, and scale to support customization requirements.

2. Does the solution drive immediate ROI?

Drive immediate ROI with no licensing fees that immediately make the organization productive and efficient. In addition, less complexity in the procurement process makes it easier to justify funding requests.

3. Does the solution fulfill the organization’s obligation to its citizens of transparency and accountability?

Public sector operations are rated based on their level of transparency and accountability, so make sure your digital solution provides transparency and accountability to its major constituents—its citizens.

4. Does the solution create business continuity?

Roads are the infrastructure that support our economy. An optimized and efficient snow removal process provides less disruption for business operations since goods and services can still be safely delivered.

5.  Does the solution provide real-time analytics and business intelligence?

A true digital solution provides performance metrics and streamlines data to fulfill business intelligence needs for other departments within the organization (HR, logistics, asset management, executives, etc.). This helps the organization measure and improve its performance.

NeoTreks Plow Ops helps various state and local agencies answer these important questions. Plow Ops provides tremendous improvements in operational efficiency and safety—all with the smart devices plow operators already use and no additional hardware infrastructure costs.
