The localion platform supports the digital transformation of companies whose business processes require spatial intelligence. The location and optimization services of the localion platform provide your ERP, CRM, SCM, order management or Field Service Management with all the information for the optimal route to the customer or location.
The localion platform is part of the DIGITAL CORE - the digital image of your business world. And if a solution is missing, we will quickly and accurately develop a web application for you that exactly covers your use case.
The localion platform is also the solution if your location data is sensitive. If, for example, the DSVGO , your service claim or the confidentiality clauses provide a solution for the map display, finding locations, routing or distance matrices completely in your own Prescribe infrastructure.
Another reason why companies choose the localion platform is our industry-specific map material , because this is often the only way to digitize .

LOCALION ® SMART ROUTES FÜR SAP FSM
When a digital world matching reality pushes scheduling to a new level of confidence and satisfaction
|+||schedule your field service more reliably with the best real-time and predictive traffic information|
|+||increase customer touch time by connecting FSM to the real world out there|
|+||use precise traffic information for individual vehicle types|
|+||maximize effectiveness of your SAP FSM installation by a ready-to-use cloud service|
|+||delight your field force and your customers by next gen smart dynamic routing|
The SAP Field Service Management solution considers many different constraints in scheduling mobile work forces. Drive times - as being one of the critical factors - are derived from a static routing service not considering the actual traffic predictions for the planning times. This may in practice lead to service teams running into foreseeable delays (congested roads and rush-hour traffic, road work, etc.) on their ways to the next jobs causing unnecessary delays or in some cases even the need to reschedule.
With localion® smart routes for SAP FSM LOGIBALL offers an optional routing service incorporating most realistic drive times for the SAP FSM scheduling engine. Based on our powerful localion® platform technology with real-time and historical traffic data incorporated to get best traffic predictions possible. These types of data streams are currently mainly in use in dynamic navigation apps in the automotive industry and offer almost global coverage meanwhile. On demand, additional services can be added like severe weather warnings, parking search time, etc.
SAP end users can order localion® smart routes for SAP FSM directly at LOGIBALL. The connection is very simple by configuration in the SAP FSM backend.
FREIGHT COST BILLING WITH SAP CONNECTION FOR A LEADING TIMBER COMPANY
Exact calculation of freight costs for routes with off-road sections
|+||Correct billing of kilometre-based transport costs across all road categories, including private roads|
|+||Easy system integration via Service API|
|+||One-off annual payment for use of localion B, regardless of the number of transactions|
The timber industry commissions transport providers on an ongoing basis, to transport timber from forest to plant. Transport services are billed by the service providers through SAP based on the number of kilometres. Calculating the kilometres covered by the transport company is a real challenge, as the loading point is rarely on public roads, and generally in forests. This means that vehicles must often travel for several kilometres on private roads and routes only suitable for trucks. These are not covered by conventional routing solutions, but still have to be billed.
Start point and end point are transferred from the SAP system via a service API, and the kilometres covered according to road category then returned to SAP. A localion B backend was created for the customer in the cloud. A special navigation map for the timber industry ensures that the routing is correct. This navigation map will also be used a thousand times over in the LOGIBALL Business Navigator Forestry system, which is why the solution was so readily accepted by transport companies.
The system was installed, tested and supplied to the customer by LOGIBALL. Access to the service is provided via the service API.
ROUTE PLANNING WITH AD HOC MAP EDITING
Web app allows easy editing of the map for route calculation benefits
|+||Planning based on real-world scenarios, and therefore properly cost-optimised|
|+||Route planning can react flexibly to changes in the actual situation|
|+||User-friendly and self-explanatory map editing|
|+||Planning system readily accepted|
Good planning of optimal routes for delivery runs to private customers is absolutely vital due to the cost situation. The key factor here is how well the data basis – in this case the road map – reflects reality. Every day there are changes to the road network, whether through roadworks, road blocks, diversions, etc. Company-specific issues can also affect the selected route, for example through roads not being used because of risk factors. It is crucial here that these changes are integrated into the planning systems as quickly as possible.
Various changes to the European road network can be made for around 200 employees through a web application. After registering and reviewing these changes, they are factored into the localion B backend for all future queries via the service API. If the base map, in this case TomTom, needs to be updated, these changes are automatically reconciled and taken into consideration once more.
The solution has been developed, installed, tested and provided by LOGIBALL. Access is provided through a web application, which is extremely user-friendly. LOGIBALL also monitors system operation.
