maps integration with Dynamics 365

Rachael and her friends were on a hike in the Grand Canyon when they found a dying rock squirrel. Rachael, an animal rescuer, called the rescue team, who were on their way. The 7.8-mile Bright Angel Trail has signposts to guide the rescue team, but other trails, uninhabited areas, and deserted roads may not.

Animal rescue operations are becoming increasingly important worldwide as more people become aware of and sensitive to the needs of wildlife. From tarantulas to pythons, deer to falcons, bees to koala bears, rescuers work to extricate these animals from dangerous situations and return them to the wild.

Can Maplytics, Inogic’s 5-star rated app of Microsoft AppSource contribute in any manner to this genuine cause? A case study of one of our Animal Rescuer clients using Maplytics within Dynamics 365 CRM points in the correct direction! So, let’s explore more!

Visualize frequent spots on Maps

Wild animals, such as deer, bears, and foxes, often approach residential homes near their habitats in search of food. They may rummage through trash cans, break into cars, or even enter homes. Once inside, they often cannot find their way out. These innocent attacks can cause significant damage to residential properties.

Maplytics within Dynamics 365 CRM can be used to plot the coordinates of these wildlife encounters on a map. This information can be used to identify areas where wildlife is most active and to develop strategies for preventing future encounters. In addition to residential areas, other areas of interest include highways near forest lines, deserted parts of cities, and trails.

The map can also be used to plot the locations of rescue organizations. This information can be used to quickly dispatch rescuers to wildlife encounters and to ensure that injured or displaced animals receive the care they need

Organized network of travel Routes

Once the locations of rescue organizations and incident spots are plotted on the map, optimized routes can be generated with end-to-end driving directions. Rescue teams can use these routes to reach incident spots more quickly and efficiently. Similar routes can also be plotted to nearby veterinary clinics and medical facilities so that injured animals or people can receive the care they need quickly.

Similar travel routes can also be plotted for food suppliers and pharmacies. Rescue organizations keep animals with them until they are adopted or healthy enough to be released back into the wild. These animals need food, medicine, injections, IVs, and physiotherapy from time to time. By providing navigation directions to those who supply these resources to rescue organizations, we can make it easier for them to deliver the care that these animals need

Live Tracking of Rescued Animals

Sometimes, rescued animals return to the same spots where they got stuck, which can make it difficult to rescue them again if the areas are no longer inhabited. To prevent this, rescued animals can be fitted with tracking chips and monitored for a few days using real-time tracking. Once the animals have "broken out of their memory," they are less likely to return to the same incident spot.

Contributions toward Rescue Operations

Rescue operations require a lot of manpower, training, and financial resources. Non-profit organizations need to continuously find donors to support their work. Maplytics can be used to record and plot the locations of frequent donors on maps, making it easier to organize activities such as fundraisers, meet and greets with rescued animals, and adoption drives near them. Flash mailers inviting donors to these events can also be sent using Maplytics.

As a token of appreciation, rescue organizations can provide monthly merchandise to their contributors. Using the Smart Route operation within the Detail Map Control, teams can select the contributor records, create a travel route, and set appointments to drop off the merchandise every few months.

Overall, Maplytics if used cleverly could work wonders in the field of animal rescue and protection as well.
