New Mobile Workforce Management Software Enhancements
- New features developed in ServiceScheduling, ServiceMobility, ServiceOperations, Optimization on DemandTM, NEXUS FSTM and ServiceStats.
ServicePower Technologies Plc (AIM: SVR), a market leader in workforce management software, today announced that it has developed new, innovative features across its mobile workforce management software platform. The improvements incorporate new user interfaces, technology updates and client requested enhancements which improve the field service management process from entitlement, to optimized routing and dispatch, inventory and asset management, claims processing, operational intelligence and team collaboration.ServiceScheduling includes enhancements to the web based admin console, improved GANTT views, crew, break and long job management, memory utilization, new features in the production modelling tool, ServiceSWAT, and analytics. Validation and ongoing integration of Quantum Annealing, the newest optimization algorithm in decades, which provides more efficient and faster schedule optimization, continues as the product team work with customer use cases to validate the new technology.
Optimization on DemandTM version 2.0, which offers schedule optimization as a service, now offers a RESTful API option for users to initiate optimization of scheduled jobs, while web-based user interfaces available on a stand-alone basis and through Nexus FSTM are in pre-production testing. Optimization on DemandTM is expected to revolutionize home health, medical facility and sales based functions, optimizing field based resources, on demand, from existing scheduling or rostering software.
ServiceOperations version 9.0 includes new Dispatch user interfaces which represent the beginning of a complete restyle of the application to bring it in line with our more modern ServiceMobility and NEXUS FSTM products.
Additional support for NEXUS FSTM enhancements are complete, including a more seamless flow of work orders and job status from ServiceOperations to both the NEXUS FSTM mobile and field service management web portal. Integration to Marcone, a leading parts distributor, also was completed enhancing the flow of parts information including the search, order, and return of parts.
The team completed a number of client requested enhancements to the SaaS platform, including improving the ability to manage third party contractor profile changes, additional support of accounting processes including more robust general ledger logic and improved contractor suspension logic which streamlines the ability of the client to dynamically manage the flow of work to specific contractors.
ServiceMobility and NEXUS FSTM enhancements include improvements to the field service management console such as inventory management, inventory shipments, and product catalog management, improved support of Microsoft Excel data imports, in addition to the existing REST APIs, for accounts, account locations, work orders and additions to the RESTful APIs. It also continues to expand the customer, work order management, payments and invoicing capabilities.
Inventory management improvements, key to both enterprises and the SMBs, include inventory tracking by storage location, including vehicles, warehouses, depots, storage lockers, homes, a field resource, as well as inventory replenishment of storage locations.
ServiceStats integration to Domo has been fast tracked. Domo, part of the Management Console, will provide dashboard views across all aspects of a field service organization. The cloud based self-service business management platform enhances ServiceStats’ ability to manage KPI’s and supports faster, more real time data updates. It also solves for multi-tenancy, improves existing reports and provides new data views, and more importantly, provides a collaborative feature in which users, and even invited non-users, can chat within the application itself about trends seen throughout the dashboards and reports. The most recent features, including a new permissions model, better facilitates ServicePower multi-tenancy deployments.
