DSI joins IFS Partner Network to leverage IFS scheduling and dispatching capabilities


DSI adds best-of-breed route management and scheduling optimisation to its Digital Supply Chain Platform™ and mobile-first supply chain apps

IFS, the global enterprise applications company, and DSI, a global leader in mobile-first and cloud supply chain solutions headquartered in Kansas City, Mo. USA, announce that DSI will leverage the scheduling optimisation components of IFS Mobile Workforce Management to add value to their line of mobile apps for supply chain and service management.

DSI enables digital transformation through mobile-first, inventory apps that optimise end-to-end visibility and execution across the extended supply chain. With decades of experience in optimising the supply chain, including with IFS software, DSI helps customers get more value from their service operations.

IFS’s dynamic scheduling engine and route optimisation capabilities will streamline the management of resources including technicians performing field service management. The dynamic scheduling engine uses advanced algorithms to automate dispatch and routing decisions. This enables managers to optimise schedules and the routes field technicians take by a number of criteria to increase profit, reduce cost and ensure Service Level Agreement (SLA) compliance.

“IFS got its start in software used to service assets, and today is recognised as a leader in applications used to manage a dynamic, distributed service workforce,” IFS Director for Partner Alliances, Parker Zanios said. “As a channel partner in the Americas, DSI will be a valuable addition to our partner ecosystem as we expand the reach of this powerful solution.”

“Customers choose DSI’s mobile-first supply chain apps built on the Digital Supply Chain Platform™ because they equip their workforce with inventory visibility and execution in the field, whether connected or disconnected.” DSI Chief Revenue Officer Mark Goode said. “The IFS scheduling, dispatch and route optimisation solution offers unique and powerful tools that will further enable our customers to be more responsive and agile than their competitors, securing an advantage in the market.”
