Snowplow Operator Recall

When snowfall occurs unexpectedly or conditions worsen unexpectedly, municipal governments often need more snowplows on the road. The problem is that getting those snowplows on the road can be slow and inefficient. 

A digital solution can allow snowplow operators to be called in and asked to work using a mass recall that leverages personalized communication automation to contact many operators at once using a variety of contact methods. 

SimplyCast presents the Snowplow Operator Recall use case, a complete solution that takes engagement tools and re-purposes them towards creating an effective and streamlined process for managing faster deployment. 

The solution is intended for use by winter operations departments and teams within cities, towns, and other municipal governments. 

The Process 

SimplyCast anticipated the need for municipal governments to improve snowplow deployment. To answer this challenge, a 4-step process was created that is split between administrators and snowplow operators: 

Administrators – Step 1 

First, administrators need to ensure that the contact information for operators is maintained, either by connecting to databases or direct contact management. 

Administrators – Step 2 

When snow conditions make additional snowplows necessary, administrators can leverage that contact information to launch snowplow operator recall that uses text messages, emails, or phone calls to contact snowplow operators. 

Operators – Step 3 

Operators then receive those messages and can indicate if they’re able to get to work on clearing the road. 

Operators – Step 4 

When a limit is set on the number of snowplows needed, operators who respond after the limit is reached will receive a message indicating that no additional snowplows are needed.
