Daufood operates Domino’s Pizza in Portugal. As a large, successful and constantly growing company with more than 500 employees and 240.000+ km driven by them each year, they have their own challenges. Their main challenge was having a thorough control over a fleet of motorbikes which delivered food from their restaurants. Having control of the bikes belonging to each of the restaurants is crucial because each restaurant and its vehicles have their own area of operations and jurisdiction. Optimization of the drivers and their delivery time is of severe importance to maintain a stable and quality-driven performance, as well as a general control of all the bikes.
With just one technician and help from 2 Daufood employees we managed to install 240 tracking devices (1 per motorbike) within 3 days. Mapon travelled to Lisbon, Portugal, for the installations. There wasn't much time: the motorbikes would start to roll-out within the next few days. We installed devices compact enough to be hidden under the bikes’ frame and thus preserve their fullest integrity. Battery economy was important. To achieve it, we activated sleep mode for the devices: this would detect a motorbikes movement and function as a wake-up alarm for the device and begin sending the position. However, if no movement was detected for a set amount of time, then the device would enter the hibernation mode once again and remain energy-efficient.
In order to make sure that each driver works in their respective zone, we brought our system to the peak of area & geo-fence management together with alerts. Each restaurant composes a variety of neighborhoods and a group of neighborhoods corresponds to a certain district (organized by colors), the latter being the area of operations of the corresponding restaurant.
Together with Daufood we assigned a dispatcher for their stores. We also assigned groups of motorbikes under the leadership of each restaurant and alerts in case a driver would move outside the limits of a set area of operations. The surveillance is demanding yet necessary. A capital is, by itself, a busy center of commerce and constant movement. Organization and detail make the difference, so much so that we are moving on with near-future plans of implementing the same system in other countries of Daufood’s presence.
