Regardless of the industry, any organization managing a distributed network of assets needs to keep them continuously running and adequately maintained which falls to the hands of technicians. Technicians are responsible for completing work orders effectively without delays and managing scheduled, or unexpected, repair and maintenance of assets. If technicians rely on traditional methods to locate assets, it can take some time without the right data which creates delays in addressing customers’ complaints. As a result, organizations could experience a loss of revenue, customers and missed future opportunities.

In today’s competitive world, where competition is just a click away, it is imperative for you to resolve customer complaints in the shortest possible time. To provide prompt customer service and ensure efficiency, your dispatchers need planning capabilities that provide real-time data, spatial data, technician availability, and location. This type of technology allows your dispatchers to assign work orders or notifications to your maintenance technicians proactively. In the absence of accurate information, maintenance or asset repairs will delay. This delay becomes a cause of strife for your customers, causing a ripple effect on the rest of the schedule.

Generating a work order, and completing it effectively, is not as easy as it sounds. Without having route optimization in place, it is difficult for technicians to accomplish their work orders promptly. External factors (changing customer preference, time sensitivity, lack of historical, real-time data, i.e., navigation) can directly impact the complexity of attending to work orders. To mitigate the challenges, you need route optimization functionality in your mobile work order management solution. This added functionality allows your maintenance technicians to track and complete assigned work orders within scheduled time frames.
