AST LEAN SMART, the field scheduling specialist, is celebrating after being named as a Finalist for Best Technology Partner at the Housing Digital Innovation Awards 2022 - celebrating the most innovative products, services and technology reshaping UK housing.
The Housing Digital Innovation Awards recognise the best digital solutions available in the UK housing sector, and the FLS team will have to wait until February to learn their placing at the annual awards ceremony.
FLS' multi-sector experience creates positive effects such as getting repairs and all field-based operatives to their appointments faster, saving time and fuel, significantly reducing costs by up to 50%, and reducing carbon emissions – all while providing a smoother, more efficient customer journey for residents.
"FLS is honoured to be recognised as a Finalist in the Housing Digital Innovation Awards, which is a genuine testament to the work of our team across the housing sector," said Jeremy Squire, UK Managing Director of FLS.
"It's wonderful to see our unique scheduling and route optimisation solution acknowledged, and this is backed up by a recent customer survey that gave FLS a 9.6 out of 10 rating, far higher than any comparable technology we're aware of. As we revolutionise field service with technology partners across the UK housing sector, we look forward to the Awards ceremony and continuing to push innovation and digital change."
Housing Digital commented, "There’s barely a corner of the UK housing sector that hasn’t been touched by the long arm of innovation. Whether it’s payments, fire safety, tenant engagement or construction, housing is an industry that’s constantly evolving – for the sake of both its workers and residents".
"The proof is hard to miss. Every day, we read about a new modular housing development, a new retrofit initiative, a new approach to tenant engagement or a new IT solution that reminds us of the sector’s unrelenting search for a better way of doing things. Many of these innovations have been driven by the new and evolving threats, to which innovation can reveal the solution".
"With the pace of change growing faster and our needs more urgent, we can be forgiven for failing to take the time to celebrate the individuals and organisations who keep out sector facing firmly toward the future. The Housing Digital Innovation Awards will provide that moment of reflection, carving out a space to champion the dedication, talent, and unrelenting drive of those striving to make UK housing a place of continued innovation and excellence".
FLS specialises in offering a complete dynamic scheduling solution. Scheduling that provides operatives with far more accurate data than conventional scheduling systems, such as factoring in the real average driving speed on a certain length of road at a specific time of day, rather than a projected speed. With its FLS VISITOUR platform, FLS provides best-of-breed dynamic scheduling and route optimisation solutions, boosting service experience, efficiency, and production while decreasing costs and lowering carbon emissions.
