In “Operasi Penanganan dan Pencegahan COVID-19” program, Telkomsel is responsible to provide IoT FleetSight and TOMS to control and manage PMI’s fleet. Telkomsel will also provide APM solution to monitor temperature of boxes with blood plasma during shipment by truck from PMI’s blood donor unit (UDD PMI) to hospitals in Jabodetabek. Included in the solutions are providing required devices and license to use FleetSight, TOMS, and APM applications, as well as enabling connection to access these applications.
Telkomsel FleetSight is a fleet management solution that will be utilized to monitor 30 tank truck used in the program. In the implementation, this solution will provide information on route taken, operational hours, driver’s behavior, and truck’s speed as insights. Furthermore, FleetSight is also capable to merge this information with real-time alert system to help user aware of any violation within operation, such as vehicle’s overspeed, overtime, or any unfamiliar route taken by the driver.
Meanwhile TOMS is an operational activities management that will be utilized to monitor every PMI’s vehicle to spray disinfectant at certain areas and send a report of all activities back to the user. The solution will manage operation on end-to-end basis, from setting schedule for vehicles to report on its operation. This is possible as TOMS able to create plans for vehicles, finding the best routes, monitor workforce on a real-time basis, to provide dashboard integrated with user’s device that would help user to read operational report easily, anytime, anywhere.
Moreover, APM is asset management solution that will be utilized to monitor real-time temperature of boxes with blood plasma which are delivered by truck from UDD PMI to hospitals in Jabodetabek. Every box consists of blood plasma plastic which its temperature is needed to be minimum -20 degree Celcius. This solution will provide end-to-end solution with device provides information on real-time temperature and also location, also dashboard that will be able to be used anytime and anywhere with notification when the temperature is increasing so the quality of blood plasma plastic will be good at destination.
“This collaborative effort is expected to contribute to accelerate the Operasi Penanganan dan Pencegahan COVID-19 program to ensure that society across the country will receive benefits of this initiative. Telkomsel will also continue to collaborate with government, institution, and any element within Indonesian society to overcome COVID-19 pandemic and its impact in Indonesia”, Setyanto concluded.
