Efficient route planning enables AVANT to reduce fuel consumption by 20 per cent

The mobile cleaning teams from the building service provider AVANT use GPS trackers to plan more efficient trips. This simultaneously lowers fuel consumption and increases customer satisfaction.

 In the first month, we already noted a significant decrease in fuel consumption compared to before. The price-performance ratio here is spot on.

Steffen Lange, Managing Director at AVANT

Challenge


Challenge

The mobile cleaning teams of the service provider have to make long journeys. As the routes were not planned efficiently, the teams lost time and consumed a lot of fuel. In addition, employees were only allowed to use company vehicles for private purposes in line with the 1 per cent rule.

Solution


Solution

AVANT equipped its 23 vehicles with GPS trackers and procured the Telekom solution Drive & Track powered by Fleet Complete. The company can now use the web interface in the fleet management system to see the location of every vehicle and use the software to plan the ideal routes.

Customer benefits


Customer benefit

AVANT has reduced fuel costs by up to 20 per cent. Customers can now be provided with the precise time at which the cleaning team is due to arrive – a factor that increases customer satisfaction. And the employees benefit from the electronic driver’s logbook when they wish to use a vehicle privately.

Dethleffs staff can find the right camper van from a stock of over 4,000 in a matter of seconds – thanks to GPS-ready hand scanners  

By using a digital parking space management system, employees at the camper van manufacturer lose less time when searching for parked vehicles prior to them being moved to production.

 In Deutsche Telekom, we have found a partner that supports us in digitalising search processes in our production.

Alexander Leopold, Managing Director at Dethleffs GmbH & Co. KG

Challenge


Challenge

Dethleffs used to rely on technologically outdated hand scanners and paper lists for its parking space management. This process cost employees a lot of time before they could find the right vehicle from a stock of over 4,000. This often resulted in delays, as vehicles were often not ready and waiting for the next production step.

Solution


Solution

With an app-based solution from SYFIT GmbH, a joint venture with Deutsche Telekom, the GPS positions of the hand scanners are determined when an employee scans a bar code on the vehicle. The data is transmitted to the back end via a mobile network and is then always available on mobile end devices and in a browser.

Customer benefits


Customer benefit

Long searches in the large parking area are now a thing of the past, as are production delays. Drivers can locate the vehicles quickly and accurately. In addition, stock can be taken at the push of a button. This saves effort, reduces costs and enables just-in-time production.

Boers optimises vehicle and machinery deployment with trackers

A connected fleet solution has enabled the forest and landscape service provider to improve its order planning and generate more detailed quotations.

 Drive & Track allows us to track the deployment time and location of our machines. This improves vehicle management and enables us to deploy them in a cost-effective manner.

Andreas Boers, forestry master & founder of Boers GbR

Challenge


Challenge

In the past, it was very difficult for the forest and landscape service provider to calculate staff and machinery deployments and provide records of them to their customers. The goal was to gain a real-time overview of the machinery and guarantee transparent proof for billing data.

Solution


Solution

With the Deutsche Telekom Drive & Track solution, Boers can locate vehicles and operating machinery in real time on live maps. The company also receives detailed analysis reports on all fleet data, as well as automatic notifications in the event of theft or when vehicles are used outside working hours.

Customer benefits


Customer benefit

With this detailed usage data, Boers can now generate more exact quotations and precisely plan last-minute orders – thus increasing customer satisfaction. The company has also become more competitive, as it is now able to deploy its vehicles more effectively and save fuel through efficient route planning.

OSRAM uses mobile robots to increase speed and flexibility in production

The light manufacturer uses automated guided vehicles in its production processes to deliver components where they are required.

 Fast and flexible devices and machines are vital for efficient production processes. The integrated campus solution project has given us the opportunity to examine how we can expand and optimise this approach in the future using new technologies.

Hans-Joachim Schwabe, CEO, OSRAM Automotive

Challenge


Challenge

Large quantities of components are transported to the production facilities on the site of the lighting manufacturer. The company hoped to increase the efficiency of this process by deploying self-driving, wirelessly connected vehicles. However, LAN connections are unsuitable for mobile IoT scenarios, while WLAN does not provide the requisite transmission quality.

Solution


Solution

OSRAM selected a 4G/5G campus network which combines a local edge cloud and an operator edge cloud in a mobile network. Edge clouds ensure the required minimal latencies and guarantee the smooth deployment of the automated guided vehicles, while the campus network ensures quick communication with the local computing resources.

Customer benefits


Customer benefit

The self-driving vehicles increase speed and flexibility in production. OSRAM has built up important knowledge that will aid the company in further optimising its production processes through new technologies. The highly flexible, mobile, secure and powerful network and IT infrastructure will be available as a basis for establishing smarter factories in the future.

Krones employees no longer have to pick up the phone to have completed parts picked up

Fitters at the manufacturer of filling and packaging systems can request that finished parts are picked up simply by pushing the IoT Service Button – thus saving valuable time.

Challenge


Challenge

At the manufacturer of filling and packaging systems, fitters often have to interrupt their work to call for finished goods to be picked up or reorder materials from the warehouse. Delayed collections cost time and slow down customer service.

Solution


Solution

28 collection points were equipped with IoT Service Buttons connected via a mobile network. Once a part is ready for the customer, the fitter simply pushes the button. This sends a notification to the Telekom IoT platform, which then automatically sends an SMS or an email to the logistics department with the order to pick up the machine part.

Customer benefits


Customer benefit

The IoT Service Buttons work using the plug-and-play principle. They are connected to the cloud via a mobile network and therefore do not require any cables or transmitters to be installed. Fitters save time as they no longer have to reach for the phone in order to have a part collected.

Fitters at Krones AG use the IoT Service Button.

IoT Service Button at the University Medical Center Mainz reduces bureaucracy in care processes

Thanks to the connected service button, carers can order vacuum pumps more quickly – and therefore have more time to care for their patients.

 Being able to complete a process at the touch of a button is a huge benefit. Out of sight, out of mind.

Angelika Schiffmann, carer at the University Medical Center Mainz

Challenge


Challenge

The process for ordering and cancelling vacuum pumps at the University Medical Center Mainz was not digitalised. It could take up to 30 minutes as the carers had to make calls and manually fill out documents and fax them.

Solution


Solution

If a carer needs a vacuum pump, all they now have to do is push the connected IoT Service Button. This button notifies internal logistics that the pump is in use and a new pump must be readied in storage.

Customer benefits


Customer benefit

The IoT Service Button streamlines bureaucratic processes and enables carers to focus more on providing patients with the care they need. In addition, it is now possible to generate automated bills according to the actual duration of use.
