Overview: Versatyle’s expertise in route optimization, initially developed for a ‘local-for-local’ food logistics project, was successfully applied to improve productivity and reduce travel time for a medium-sized healthcare institution. This case study showcases the adaptability of route optimization solutions across diverse industries.

Challenges:

  1. Enhancing route efficiency for food delivery to reduce food miles and costs.
  2. Addressing productivity issues in ambulatory care by optimizing caretakers’ schedules.
  3. Minimizing travel time and administrative burden for caretakers.

Solutions:

  1. Food Logistics Optimization: Versatyle researched and implemented route optimization software for food delivery vans, enabling drivers to access optimal routes via a mobile application, reducing food miles and costs.
  2. Healthcare Productivity Enhancement: Data from healthcare management and HR was collected to feed into the route optimization engine, allowing the creation of optimal weekly schedules for caretakers.
  3. Increased Productivity: The route optimization solution resulted in up to a 20% increase in caretaker productivity by reducing travel time and administrative tasks. Caretakers could now adhere to care plans more effectively, meeting municipal and health insurance company obligations.

Results:

  • Enhanced route efficiency for food logistics.
  • Improved caretaker productivity and reduced travel time.
  • Streamlined scheduling with minimal administrative burden.
  • Improved compliance with care plans and regulations.
