Field service technician scheduling is a constant puzzle—one where the pieces do not always seem to fit together. Efficient scheduling and informative dispatching can make all of the difference in field service businesses. Rather than doing guesswork to arrive at the best possible configurations, scheduling and dispatch automation are available with the latest field service software solutions. The experts at FieldEquip are here to share insight about these features and the benefits they provide.
Routine maintenance is like clockwork, which may deceptively seem easy to keep up with. However, when you spread those maintenance routines across dozens of technicians, hundreds of clients, and thousands of machines—the lines can become a little blurry. With automated field service scheduling solutions, technicians can now be automatically assigned to routine preventive maintenance visits months in advance.
Also, as technicians are wrapping up on a job site, they can schedule the next routine maintenance visit straight from their mobile field service app. Using the latest software capabilities, you can ensure that your technicians never miss a routine visit. Best of all, this feature results in better protection for client equipment and a more reliable cash flow for your business.
As your service visits are scheduled out in advance, your field service software will begin to map these appointments. As new appointments and service needs arise, this software makes it easy to see which technician is going to be in proximity of these sites. You can then select the nearby technician with the skills and clearance.
