SCHEDULING SOFTWARE FOR CONSTRUCTION AND
Cost-controlled recurring appointments in a customer-friendly way
The installation of pre-assembled components is a major project milestone for the construction and installation sector. Technicians are therefore active in various areas. They are deployed, for instance, in companies specialising in lifts, gas, water, heating, and ventilation installation and windows. This could also include lighter duties such as environmental protection (insects and pollen filters), as well as kitchen or shower system installation.
Irrespective of whether the installation order has been placed for a new build project or is carried out retrospectively in existing buildings, on schedule and first-time-fix is pivotal. In the end, it is customer satisfaction that ultimately decides whether the technician or the installation company is employed again.
Construction companies are frequently under high time pressure, making the adherence to construction schedules and thus scheduling accuracy and faultless execution of installation work the central requirements. The expectations of domestic customers on visiting technicians has also risen. The ordered goods should, if possible, be installed as soon as possible and on the date desired by the customer. Transparent appointment scheduling based on customer requirements is a must. Fierce competitive pressure due to the increasing market share of integrated e-commerce (including integrated trade services), means end-to-end customer experience is a critical success factor.
FLS SOFTWARE FOR OPTIMISED UNIT DELIVERY AND INSTALLATION SCHEDULING
Accurate scheduling that can considerably enhance schedule adherence as well as the first-time-fix rate and call rate per day can be implemented for field technicians with FLS VISITOUR. We have developed a solution for field service control that enables optimal scheduling and route planning. It supports companies in all tasks on the last mile. The key is the unique PowerOpt algorithm. PowerOpt is the result of over 10 years of development and research into the logistical problems of scheduling and route planning.
By integrating the appointment portal FLS PORTAL, customers are able to select their desired time and date for call performance. Until the technician's actual arrival, customers are permanently kept up to date thanks to arrival time notification via text message and a link for live-tracking the approach.
