Caption: Zonar cites these benefits for ZFuel users: maximizing mpg and controlling hard dollar fuel costs; creating efficiency scores, by driver, to uncover training gaps; normalizing metrics across age of truck and route terrain; tracking key metrics that impact fuel costs, such as speeding; flagging idle times
outside of company policy, by individual truck profile; fuel theft protection; tracking driver behavior and monitoring improvement; and, quantifying the number and percentage of miles in top gear.
The idle time
of the VM does not measured in VM placement algorithms.
To demonstrate just how immense, let's compare two machines over a five year period--one with 50 percent idle time
(Machine A), one with 25 percent idle time

If the reader sends a query and no tag's ID matches the query string, it will result in an idle time
slot and increase the traffic and query time.
Plan for idle time
. FMSI calls the time when staff members are inactive and waiting for members to come in the branch idle time
, or more precisely, excess waiting for work time.
Often the machines are driven at maximum speed but when you look at the amount of idle time
it's clear that this isn't always necessary," he said.
Intradiem now offers a solution that enables contact center agents to complete back office tasks during their idle time
. The intraday management technology addresses claims, customer research, invoice processing and data entry, and can dynamically respond to changes in call volume and aggregate small increments of idle time
across the entire agent population to create productive sessions for individual agents.
Dynamically deliver coaching, training, back office, communications, and other off-phone activities during idle time
Director Carl Stott said: "Initially, we had the hardware fitted to 12 coaches and after the first 12 months we saved about PS22,000 on fuel by reducing idle time
by one hour per coach per day.
Knowlagent (www.knowlagent.com) and DMG Consulting LLC have published two white papers and two corresponding podcasts that demonstrate how call centers can improve enterprise performance and profitability by maximizing agent idle time
. Both the whitepapers and podcasts identify real-time work allocation solutions as tools that enable dramatic improvements in service delivery while simultaneously reducing agent downtime.
