What deficiencies can occur when utilities plan and schedule? And what is the ultimate cost? Learn how to offset shortfalls and introduce greater efficiencies to protect and grow your bottom line.

Manual or outdated workforce scheduling comes at a cost, usually at the expense of work in the field.  Most field crews expect 30-50% of their scheduled work will contain flaws requiring resolution before work can begin.

Integrating planning and scheduling technology with mobile workforce management systems extends the benefits of optimized scheduling to the work happening in the field. This ensures work is carried out as efficiently as possible the first time for:

  • Planned work and customer requests
  • Capital projects
  • Critical and unplanned events
  • Asset inspection and maintenance

Learn how integrating these technologies allows you to quickly respond to demands in the field, reduce overall costs, and increase efficiencies.
