V3 Smart Technologies Suite of Solutions Aim Towards Skills Upgrading And Productivity Improvement

V3 Smart Technologies showcases a full suite of solutions, which companies can adopt, aim at improving productivity and allowing workers to enjoy better pay through skills upgrading and increased productivity at this year inaugural session of National Trades Union Congress™ (NTUC) Progressive Wage Seminar, titled ˜Higher Profits, Better Pay “ the Progressive Work Model (PWM) held on 12th November (Wednesday).

The progressive wage model, mooted by the Labour Movement in 2012, has four prongs “ skills upgrading, productivity improvements, career advancement and wage progression. The model aims to enable companies to make better use of manpower and pay higher wages, commensurate with larger scopes and higher productivity level.

Accordingly, as of end-October this year, close to 270 firms have adopted the model and with an estimated of more than 150,000 workers, including Professionals, Managers, Executives, rank-and-file and lower-wage workers have benefited.

NTUC aims to have at least 50 per cent of unionized companies on board some form of progressive wage model by end-2015. Meanwhile, it is urging companies to gear up for the challenges ahead.

˜The slow employment growth is real, high wage expectations will continue to be there and companies will certainly need to re-invent themselves,  said Ms Cham Hui Fong who is NTUC™s assistant secretary-general. We want both employers and employees to work together to really change mindsets.

Targeting at these key challenges in mind, V3 Smart Technologies™ suite of solutions featured at the roadshow were among the few innovative productivity driven systems hand-picked by iDA, who was also invited to grace this ceremony and event alongside SPRING, WDA, e2i and NTUC. These solutions pivot on these following platforms.

V3Nity Cloud Robotics

Cloud Robotics seek to play an increasingly important role in effective deployment of manpower. Conceptualized and designed in Singapore, this patent pending technology helps to maximize the use of headcount with productivity improvement for the cleaning sectors. In specifics, this artificial intelligent which is web-based solution in nature, is mounted on mechanical sweeper or even any Automated Guided Vehicle (AGVs) which aims to achieve effective operation hours and minimize human errors, fatigue and break/rest time.

V3Nity-WAM (Workforce Assignment & Mobility)

V3Nity WAM systems seek to update milestones of job done by field personnels; hence, eliminating the needs for manual process of work status updating and completion submission. With reports generated from the cloud based web-portal through submission of the work milestones on handheld device, it helps company to enhance productivity and visibility through effective remote monitoring whereby manpower needed to randomly check on sites can be re-deployed to perform other tasks.
V3Nity-FMS (Fleet Management System)

An asset monitoring system which allows the Command and Control Centre to view and track where the vehicle or manpower are through GPS device tracker or mobile app installed in vehicle or smartphone device respectively. For vehicle tracking system, it can even be connected to various accessories which measure the various event incidents for example, fuel level sensor, driver IDs etc with a comprehensive module of driver behaviours.

Support For SMEs to Access & Make THE MOST OF TECHNOLOGY

Whats-Next_2SMEs embark on innovation journey and invest in technology to keep pace

In-Licensed Technology Enhances V3 Smart Technologies™ Products

V3 Smart Technologie is a homegrown SME that specialises in Location-Based Services & Applications and an Intelligent Transport System. It developed the first Machine-to-Machine (M2M) Telematics platform in Singapore that allows enterprises to use telematics and real time data to optimise and manage scarce resources. Over the past 12 years, it has established itself as a leading provider of innovative mobility solutions and technologies in the region.

V3 Smart Technologie identified service robotics application as an area of growth. With an aging workforce and rising labour costs, service robots are set to play a vital role in the service sectors such as cleaning & maintenance and security & surveillance. To complement our strength in wireless M2M sensors, navigation and mobility systems, we sought to collaborate and in-license enabling technologies such as human detection analytics to make the robots smarter, said Mr Wong Shih Jon, Executive Director of V3 Smart Technologie.

IPI assisted V3 Smart Technologie in sourcing for the right technology. At TechInnovation last year, it was matched to TNO, a renowned research organisation from the Netherlands, for one of its enabling technologies. Following a few rounds of discussion, they started a co-development project to incorporate video surveillance capability into the robots. The collaboration with TNO and the use of automated human detection have greatly helped to enhance cognitive intelligence of V3 Smart Technologie™ robots.

The outcome of the collaboration has resulted in the successful development of our first cloud robotics solution for surveillance. This enables us to enter the market for service robots much quicker than if we were to develop the technology in-house from scratch. Mr Adrian Long, General Manager, V3 Smart Technologie was quoted.
