Here’s how the technology supports technicians in the field:
- Start-of-shift survey: The technician signs in and verifies they are physically able to do the work, confirming they have the necessary parts and tools for their assigned jobs.
- Scheduling of jobs: The technician accesses assigned work orders, reviewing each job including contract information, location to attend, status of their travel time, and other details.
- Customer requirements: The system is integrated with customer-specific protocols such as health and safety and other prerequisites prior to starting the work.
Completed work orders: The technician reviews the scope of work checklist to ensure all required actions were carried out, verifying captured time reports, generating proof-of-work reports, obtaining customer sign-off, and locating parts, van transfers and other details to ensure a first-time fix.
