SNOWiQ

Transform your snow removal operations

Unpredictable weather demands a rapid and flexible response from busy municipalities. Fleets must be able to scale quickly, whether internally or through contractors, to optimize snow removal operations, reduce idle time and save money. With SNOWiQ, municipalities can handle changing demand and easily scale snow-clearing efforts without having to invest in specialized hardware and radios.

SNOWiQ takes snow removal operation to a higher level of scalability and transparency – clearing the way to rapid, flexible and effective response when wintry weather strikes.

The powerful SNOWiQ platform eliminates the chaos that often hampers snow removal and salting efforts. It offers clear benefits to fleet managers and supervisors, snowplow operators and members of the public who need access to snow-free streets and roads.

Fleet managers & supervisors

SNOWiQ's easy-to-use application and web-based portal facilitate paperless distribution and control of assignments, enabling fleet managers and supervisors to:

  • Visualize contractor fleets in real time via an intuitive dashboard, from county-wide fleet activity to individual neighborhoods.
  • Prioritize fleet movements with agility and precision. Dynamically dispatch, redeploy, or add drivers, from within the app.
  • Enforce quality control and approve cleared routes.
  • Improve performance, time management and customer service levels.
  • Integrate with agency systems, including GIS, 311 systems, and SSO.
  • Obtain real-time footage of the road through drivers’ smartphone camera.

Using the analytics from the app, agencies also get unprecedented visibility into the efficacy of individual snow-clearing crews and can use that data to make informed decisions about renewing contracts in future years to ensure the best use of taxpayer dollars.

Snowplow operators

SNOWiQ empowers municipal and contractor drivers with tools that take the guesswork out of snow removal efforts -- all from a simple smartphone app. Specifically, SNOWiQ enables snowplow operators to:

  • Receive real-time notification of route assignments.
  • Easily navigate to and throughout assignments.
  • Review assigned routes on a map-based interface.
  • Confirm and track work completed.
  • Streamline teamwork with other drivers on the same route.
