Location Analytics Industry Trends

Here are three relevant industry trends, why I believe WhereOS is going to change the world:

  1. Hyperconnected World – Businesses are getting more and more connected to online, cloud based information systems as a part of their business processes. Customers are accessing companies’ online services 24/7 through different interfaces, generating more and more information about their purchase behavior, location, movement, social interactions and so forth – all tied to geographical locations
  2. Business Digitalization – New businesses are challenging traditional industries by using combinations of static and dynamic information to create new services for their digital customers: They know better who their customers are, what they want, where they are located, and how to serve them best. They know where the operational bottlenecks are and can deliver the right goods and services to right locations to create the best customer experience, maximize the sales and minimize the cost.
  3. Data Explosion – The amount of data businesses are collecting from their customers and business operations is increasing constantly. Data sets are large, and in constant change – the existing IT systems and processes do not facilitate innovation in the fast paced change many industries are undergoing.

With WhereOS, it’s extremely easy to built APIs and applications based on data: instead of months, new applications can be create in a matter of hours or days. This facilitates lean prototyping of how data can be used to create new value-adding services and products, helping both traditional and new businesses to speed up the development.

Route Optimization

Route Optimization application calculates the most efficient route that goes through the specified set of waypoints. Route optimization can be used to calculate service routes, delivery routes, pick-up routes etc., that require all waypoints to be visited in the most efficient manner.

The most efficient route is defined calculated through R function, that takes the characteristics of the route and waypoints into account. The default weighting function is duration based, i.e. the optimal route is the one that finishes earliest, with two waypoint categories: critical and low. Critical waypoints are visited first, and low category waypoints last, in a manner that the shortest duration route is the final result. The R function can be modified to take into account different route characteristics, such as route distance, waypoint types, waypoint SLAs, time of day etc.
