Scotts LawnService, a subsidiary of the Scotts Miracle-Gro Company and a provider of on-site lawn, tree and shrub fertilization, insect control and other related services, has selected Pointserve to optimize its service delivery.
Pointserve said that it applies advanced model-based artificial intelligence to evaluate the economic impact of planning, aligning, promising and delivering service in various ways with a focus on maximizing business performance.
Pointserve supplies a range of optimization web-services that enable clients to predict service demand, plan, schedule, and operate in a way that maximizes value across the enterprise.
Ed Powell, chairman and CEO of Pointserve, said: We are excited to help a very well run company continue to improve efficiency and customer satisfaction, while simultaneously lowering costs and carbon emissions. In similar companies, we have been able to reduce vehicle mileage, drive time and fuel utilization by tremendous amounts. At the same time, we reduce the CO2 emissions by almost a metric ton of CO2 per vehicle per month.
James Schiefferle, vice president of finance and IT at Scotts LawnService, said: We are looking forwarding to working with Pointserve, and are expecting considerable efficiency gains. This optimization will help us to control our costs and serve our customers better, which is our top priority at Scotts.
