WESTBOROUGH, Mass.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--ViryaNet 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 management solution.
“The implementation has enabled EmiTel to achieve the expected benefits, including improving productivity and reducing operational costs in our mobile workforce operations.”
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 maintenance.
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 Przemysław 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."
