At the Latvian Geospatial Information Technology Conference of 8 December 2017, a representative of SIA Clean R shared experience by introducing an information technology (IT) solution in their company that allows optimisation of the work tasks of waste collectors. The optimisation process ensuring that the customers’ waste collectors must visit on any given day were grouped in a way that enabled them to take the shortest/fastest route possible, resulting in time, fuel and human resource savings. This IT solution allowed the company to save about 7%.
Considering the need for a similar IT solution, we decided to expand into the branch of IT that deals with the above algorithmic problems, or optimises work resources. As a result, we formed a team of knowledgeable people and began developing our own solution in 2018.
In July 2019, ATAPS began testing the new solution in Rēzekne Municipality in collaboration with SIA ALAAS. While in September, we will begin testing the solution in Jēkabpils Municipality in collaboration with SIA Vidusdaugavas SPAAO.
