Using Job Tracking Software to Improve Productivity

Are Your Field Service Technicians Wasting Time in the Field?

Tracking-Jobs-Sage-100When it comes to field service management, job tracking is essential. As a field service manager, you need to know the locations of your field service technicians at all times for scheduling and productivity purposes. Rather than calling your technicians every 30 minutes to determine their progress and check in on their location, you can track their jobs in real-time using modern technology.

The following technology can assist in driving field service improvements and optimizing productivity out in the field:

  • Real-time scheduling software
  • Mobile devices
  • GPS tracking

Mobile field service management applications let you track service technicians’ locations, determine the best person for upcoming jobs based on skill and schedule availability, and create the best route/job sequence for each technician on a day-to-day basis. This, in turn, increases productivity and efficiency out in the field, keeping you and your customers happy.
