Imagine Geoforce’s excitement when it was announced the 2016 Summer Olympics would be held in Rio de Janeiro, a mere three hour drive from our Geoforce do Brasil office in Macae, RJ, Brazil. Most of our Brazilian team planned vacations for this time so they could attend several events, including the golf tournament (pictured below). Our Brazil Operations Manager, Andre Chaboudet, even served as a volunteer at the Olympics!
With the closing ceremonies approaching this Sunday, we’ve begun to reflect on a wonderful couple of weeks. One thing we realized is just how similar the Olympics are to what Geoforce does:
All Athletes (Assets) in One Place
The Olympics bring a variety of athletes from all over the world into a single place. Similarly, Geoforce brings a variety of your field assets from all over the world into a single cloud-based software application! By having all athletes in one place, you better understand how countries stack up, athletically. And by having all your field assets in one place, you better understand how your assets stack up, operationally.
Efficiency and Precision Matter
Whether you are swimming, running, or working the pommel horse, the Olympics are about becoming as technically efficient and precise as possible. Every second and every centimeter counts. The difference between gold and silver is miniscule. Similarly, whether you are dispatching fleet vehicles, verifying service for billing purposes, or performing preventative maintenance on powered equipment, you need to be as technically efficient and precise as possible. Every second of downtime and every measure of precision counts in field operations. The difference between profit and loss can be miniscule.
Unlike the Olympic Games, you don’t have to wait four long years to bring all your field assets together or become more efficient and precise. Luckily, you can use Geoforce on a daily basis!
