Aspire provides strong support for the management of snow-related services. Because of the unpredictable nature of snowstorms, business practices for managing snow services and the use of Aspire for snow management require a specialized focus.
When considering snow management, the concept of snow events is important. A snow event is typically a single snow-fall or other severe weather event that require the services of the organization. Aspire allows the user to perform two key functions around snow events around which other snow capabilities are centered:
- Schedule visits for anticipated snow events.
- Log a weather event (snowfall) that has occurred and for which final snow depth has become available.
Optimized Snow Management Methods
- Routes Method – This method allows the user to pre-define properties on each snow route for which the crew is responsible making contracted services for those properties available to the crew leader on the mobile device for assigning time. This method does not require schedulers to explicitly schedule work ticket visits on the schedule board when a snow event occurs.
- Events Method – This method allows a scheduler to quickly schedule work ticket visits on the schedule board when a snow event occurs so that the work tickets are available to crew leaders in the normal fashion in the Crew Mobile App.
The application of these methods is further developed in Snow Season Setup.
