THE CHALLENGES IN REFRIGERATION, AIR CONDITIONING & HEATING TECHNOLOGY When a heating system is broken, it must be fixed quickly. In addition, refrigeration, air conditioning, and heating technology (and the wider HVAC sector) often deals with large seasonal fluctuations. Good and, above all, accurate and reactive service is becoming increasingly important.
Companies must take these factors into account when planning and managing field staff and resources. Fortunately, there are now digital tools that have been specially developed for deployment planning and route optimisation.
Software for scheduling and route planning makes processes in technical field service more efficient, saves time and costs, and helps you to handle more orders — with an improved and fairer utilisation of your staff and their skills.
With FLS VISITOUR, we have developed the leading technology for deployment and route planning in technical field service. Companies like HomeServe, Seco Kältetechnik, WOLF Heiztechnik Österreich and Ochsner Wärmepumpen use our solutions to increase the efficiency and customer satisfaction of their service.
"Since the introduction of FLS VISITOUR, it is finally possible for our employees to finish work on time and there is simply no more overtime. This means that they can also reliably plan and enjoy family time, which is of course great for our employees."
Samantha Stangl, WOLF Heiztechnik GmbH
FLS CUSTOMERS IN THE REFRIGERATION, AIR-CONDITIONING & HEATING TECHNOLOGY INDUSTRY:
FLS SOFTWARE FOR SCHEDULING IN REFRIGERATION, AIR-CONDITIONING & HEATING TECHNOLOGY
Whether heating engineers, refrigeration technicians or other companies from the HVAC sector - the order books are full, the staff sometimes scarce. When it comes to order processing, speed, safety 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, routes, and tours 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.
Up to 50% less scheduling effort
Our software for your deployment and route/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.
More precise and shorter time windows
Wolf Heiztechnik was able to reduce its appointment time windows from 4 to 2 hours with FLS technology. You too can benefit from precise and timely scheduling and route planning.
By optimally assigning field technicians based on their skill set and availability, order and travel times can be reduced. Real-time material handling ensures that all parts needed for the job are available based on past service data. This minimises repeated and unnecessary customer visits.
Future decisions on the basis of real-time data and analyses, thus optimally deploying your service technicians and creating a more efficient and productive processing of orders.
