Transcript of OAP - Real Time Assignments and Field Staff Monitoring

By Digicon Valley Opportunity Analysis Project
SMART-FT - Real Time Assignments and Monitoring of Field Staff The application’s intent is to provide a platform to small, medium and large organizations to assign and monitor their field team’s activities by using a smart-phone application. This application will be integrated with a web-application which will facilitate the line managers and field teams controlling offices to properly utilize their field teams and get good & right performance from the resources. Project Overview Introduction
In order to calculate our market size we will need to calculate the growth in the GPS mobile which will be the main platform for our system. Then we will calculate the current Revenues of the existing companies in the market offering “Fleet Management”.
For The Mobile:
According to ReportLinker, Reuter and others GPS Market Forecast to 2013 it is projected that shipment of GPS devices will grow at a CAGR of more than 20% during 2011-2013 to reach around 900 Million units by 2013.

The number of subscribers of GPS-enabled location-based services (LBS) is anticipated to grow substantially in near future, with market revenue touching the mark of US$ 10 Billion by 2013.
Market Size Estimation GPS Devices There are no available dedicated reports covering the market size for the fleet management business. So as a work around we collected data about the four main giants companies in this domain and used it to estimate the market size.

The main four players in the Fleet Management Market are:

4.Labor Sync

TeleNave is the only company which publishes its revenue.
TeleNave generated US$ 50 Million by 2012 and expect to generate US$ 200 Million by 2013

Based on this fact we estimated that the total market size for fleet management software and service for the four main companies to be US$ 500 Million by 2013. Assumptions The total revenue of telcom secotr is $1.4 Trillions while based on the high growth in the GPS devices market which will reach total of 900 Million device in 2013, 10 Billion dollars of GPS related services and based on the estimated revenue of the four main companies in the “Fleet Management” service which is 500 Million we concluded that the market size for the “Field Employees Tracker” will be similar to the size of the “Fleet Management” although it is more generic so it should achieve a bigger market but as it is still a new business penetrating the market so we expected to have the same size of “Fleet Management” Conclusion Business Domain:

Business Category: Local/National/Multination

Business Formations:Single/Multiple

Planned and Surveyed The Digicon Valley's Team is geographically scattered and has performed the surveys in United States, Germany, Egypt, UAE, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan

Total Number of Surveys Performed: 10
Positive Responses: 7
Negative Responses: 2
Neutral Responses: 1 Survey Results Saudi Arabia: The controlling office is in Saudi Arabia while they have distribution network in Egypt. The pain area is they don't know and have no way to monitor their field staff in Egypt.
Issue: The field staff in Egypt is illiterate and don't have smart phone. The Real
Pain of Customers The initial concept to develop a generic application for field staff monitoring is seems to be not workable as every business have their own needs to capture the required information. So, the system need to be revised having the capabilities to configure the application according to required information paradigms.

Another major change in the initial concept is identified as an offline system is required which record the information in the areas where Internet on mobile phone is not working and publish the recorded information when Internet become available to the smart-phone.

The application also need to have an optional functionality to work through SMS along with or instead of mobile Internet connection. Lessons Learned
