ServicePower Applies for Various Quantum Annealing Patents

The Newest Generation of Optimisation Technology

ServicePower Technologies Plc (AIM:SVR), a market leader in workforce management technology, announces that it has applied for three new patents related to Quantum Annealing Optimisation for field service and workforce management solutions. 

The Quantum Annealing algorithm, which is the first new algorithm developed for field service in many years, can drive greater productivity enhancements and route efficiencies by making the optimisation more efficient.

This algorithm was developed as part of a KTP (Knowledge Transfer Partnership) initiative with Dr. Alan Crispin and Alex Syrichas from the Manchester Metropolitan University. 

This new algorithm is expected to be utilised in ServicePower's latest product launches, including NEXUS FStm and Optimization on Demandtm, as well as an enhancement to the proven ServiceSchedulingtm product that uses ServicePower's version of the simulated annealing algorithm.
