Planning management software:
■ Building of schedules in a manual/automatic mode
■ Holidays, illness, absences monitoring
■ Mobile staff management

This suite includes the time profiling and access control modules (STPTime), the pay module (STPPAY), the Web consultation module (STPNet) and HR management (STPeople).
Cartographical software for vehicle tracking:
■ GeoTeam (building of teams onboard vehicles)
■ GeoTalk (callcenter with and between vehicles)
■ GeoCollection (cartographical tool for designing rounds)
■ GeoGuidance (interactive guiding of vehicles)
This suite closely integrates with the StaffPlanner suite offering a unique management tool for the monitoring of vehicle fleets and especially with the problem of wastage.
Timesheet management software:
■ Simple interface for timesheet encoding
■ Rich reporting for project monitoring
