The Map

PROJECTS, BASES and DYNAMIC ASSETS
Overview, procedures and costs.

The FOS System is a powerful, custom built GIS software built on Google Earth.  All activity is based on our MAP and our SEARCH feature.

In order for the system to be most effective; Projects, Bases/Field Offices and Dynamic Assets need to be registered into the system, placed onto the Map and this is very fast and easy to do.

After you register with the System you will be prompted to create a Headquarters (this is where and who we invoice), which may or may not be a BASE.

After the Headquarters is created then Service Providers (SP) need to create a Base and if desired Project Managers (PM) can create a Base or Field Office.

For PM a Base will be useful when you want SP to contact specific people regarding certain projects, a company might create a Base for each Field Office then simply call it by name.

Once the Base is created you can create Projects associated with that Base.

A Base for a SP is where Operations or Services are conducted from.  Most Bases are Field offices with Trucks and Equipment (DYNAMIC ASSETS) attached to the Base.

When setting up your Base and each Dynamic Asset you need to decide what LEVEL OF SERVICE will be most effective your choices are:

  • BASIC
  • MID-LEVEL and
  • FULL. Choose the class that provides the asset the greatest value for your company.

Once you select your BASE/DYNAMIC ASSET class, simply follow the prompts to populate the data requirements. At any time you can upgrade the class.

The next decision is to select the SERVICE CATEGORY.  Each BASE/DYNAMIC ASSET may offer different Services or Service Categories.  Please be sure to add each Service Category associated with the BASE/DYNAMIC ASSET so you can be found with our SEARCH function.  IF you do not register in that Service Category, then you will not BE FOUND!

The System set up process for both Project Managers and Service Providers is this.

Step 1 Create your Headquarters (NOTE this can ALSO be your Base)

Step 2 Create/Add a Base.

Step 2A Choose the level of the Base (Basic/Mid-Level/Full Level) the complete the data asked for.

Step 2B Select the Service Categories ASSOCIATED with that Base, then complete the data asked for.

A Base can have an unlimited number of associated Service Categories

Add a Dynamic Asset.

Step 3 Choose the level of the Dynamic Assets (Basic/Mid-Level/Full Level) connected to that Base then complete the data asked for.

Step 3A Select the Service Categories ASSOCIATED with that Dynamic Asset, then complete the data asked for.

Please note a Base can have a BASIC level of service while the Dynamic Assets can have a FULL level of service.

Step 3B Add a new Dynamic Asset for the same Base.

Once all Dynamic Assets have been added to Base #1

Step 4 Add another Base and repeat the Process.

 

Bases, Levels of Service.
