The use of SkyEye Fleet Management system in partnership with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment and enabling development partner in JICA has improved the efficiency and effectiveness of waste collection nationwide. An 80% reduction in complaints is a tremendous achievement by The Waste Management Division and certainly beneficial for the people of Samoa. This was made possible with the help of SkyEye’s Fleet Management system, which is extremely flexible and adaptive to any application; As shown below for the Rubbish Collection Project.
The application Design
(1) The Induvidual Rubbish Collection Routes provided by the Wate Management Division were mapped on the VT application
(2) Check Points for the extents of the routes were set. These check points will check if the tracked Rubbish Trucks have reach those extents or not. Contractors gets daily reports of these check points that were reached by their rubbish trucks and also check points that were not reached.
(3) Rubbish Truck Visits to Rubbish Tip Sites like Taifagata is tracked
(4) Daily and Weekly Reports to contractors and Waste Managmenet Division which includes
- Trip Logs
- Route Points Visited
- Route Points Not Visited
- Tip Site Visits
- Excessive Idle
- Unauthorized area visits
(5) Investigative Tools when complaints are logged e.g Areas Search Tool
Allows staff to check complaints areas to check which if rubbish truck serviced the area on which day and time. This significantly reduces time to manage complaints by staff
