The IFS Hierarchical Travel Matrix (HTM) quickly determines the travel time and distance between jobs. It delivers a truly scalable real-time response based on geographic coordinates, i.e. latitude and longitude location references. This means IFS HTM can handle logistics for any parts of the world where road network data exists. The highest degree of travel accuracy is therefore achieved for all calculations, as IFS HTM takes into account one-way streets, bridges over waterways, congestion zones and more.

  • Very fast lookup of travel times between locations for fast, accurate scheduling
  • Uses road network data including constraints like one-way streets and dual-lane highways, but can also be created for rail or travel on foot
  • Allows for different speed settings according to a vehicle’s type
  • Can incorporate travel profiles that allow longer travel times at certain times of day and days of the week.
  • Takes temporary road closures into account
  • Schedules automatically updated based on the progress of a resource on their journey to their next job, so one resource being stuck in a traffic jam will not jeopardize customer service

  • Enables the Dynamic Scheduling Engine to consider more solutions in a given time period
  • Allows for a mix of mobile resources using different travel modes
  • Provides the ability to easily globalize your field service optimization processes
  • Offers customers more accurate arrival times
