INDUSTRY: MACHINERY & PLANT ENGINEERING
MORE EFFICIENCY AND BETTER SERVICE IN MACHINE AND PLANT TECHNICAL FIELD SERVICE THROUGH OPTIMISED SCHEDULING AND ROUTE PLANNING
Mechanical and plant engineering is at the heart of industrial performance as a supplier of complex products for all sectors of the economy. The European mechanical engineering industry is the global leader of this sector and Europe's biggest industrial employer. In the areas of Industry 4.0, resource-saving environmental protection, energy efficiency and electromobility, the sector is also a key driver of innovation.
But the industry sector is also facing immense challenges. The traditional capital goods business is coming under further pressure from increased competition. Therefore, the importance of the aftersales and service business is increasing in order to stand out from competitors and open up new growth opportunities.
This is where innovative service solutions come into play: remote support, service apps for customers, predictive maintenance and the optimisation of on-site technician deployments. Mechanical engineering and plant manufacturers are increasingly relying on modern software solutions that support service and enable a new customer experience.
Field service engineers in machinery and plant engineering are highly qualified specialists. The efficient deployment of these resources is connected with a number of conditions. FLS VISITOUR ensures accurate scheduling of service engineers, thus considerably enhancing the 'First-Time-Fix-Rate' and the number of appointments per day.

With our solutions, we help companies to optimally and efficiently manage the assignments and tours of their technicians. Our customers benefit from leading software for field service management, the use of which quickly results in reduced costs and increased customer and employee satisfaction.
"Even if we calculate very conservatively and assume a saving of only savings of only 10% of the travel time, we gain 100 hours per week. By saving this valuable time, our time, our employees can now concentrate even more on the concentrate even more on the customers. A great result."Stefan Bernhard, Christ Wash Systems
FLS SOFTWARE FOR ROUTE PLANNING IN MECHANICAL ENGINEERING AND PLANT CONSTRUCTIONWhether mechanical engineering, plant construction or other companies from the manufacturing sector - the order books are full, personnel is sometimes in short supply. When it comes to order processing, speed, security and customer service are in demand.
Therefore, with FLS VISITOUR, we have developed a field service management solution that really meets these criteria. The key to this is the unique PowerOpt algorithm. PowerOpt is the result of over 10 years of development and research into the logistical problems of deployment and route planning.
Technology makes it possible for you to finally map the complex requirements of field service optimally. And in real time, even if changes occur during the course of the day.
FLS software solutions enable companies to fully exploit their potential to save costs and increase efficiency. This is because the planning processes, tours and routes can be significantly optimised thanks to the unique PowerOpt algorithm. With solutions from FLS, you get automated route planning and route optimisation that gets the most out of your order books.
Our software for your deployment and tour planning or your field service management plans the day in a matter of seconds. This gives your employees time for the essentials, such as escalation management.
