It can be difficult to manage your field staff effectively without the visibility available from workforce mobility software. Without a mobile workforce system that captures remote data in one place it is impossible to ensure all staff are productive, safe, and supported, and that you are maintaining vehicles and equipment properly to avoid accidents and injuries.
Identifying red flags throughout the daily workflow is important to ensure team efficiency and for the prevention of issues in the field, from broken equipment or poorly assessed work sites. You can’t get true control over your business without a proper system in place for managing risks, safety, maintenance, equipment, and jobs.
Ensure everyone is following the correct procedures
Paper systems are time-consuming to fill out and organise, as well as costly to store and recover if things go pear shaped. Relying on paper or even a set of disconnected apps like accounting package add-ons is inefficient and makes it difficult to provide staff in the field access to distributed information so they can complete jobs effectively and safely.
Not having workforce mobility software in place can have a negative impact on your business and prevent your team from having the critical visibility over issues and potential hazards that could result in near misses or harm.
Pairing the safety risks with the business necessities your teams are always working with a diverse range of documents that they need to run your business.
If the information doesn’t reach the field in a timely manner, or worst case is lost, this will have a significant impact on your customers and bottom lines. Without the power of workforce mobility software, which are backed up on the cloud, you run the risk of overrunning or duplicating . This wastes valuable time and resources.
Keep on top of your schedule with ease
In the fast paced world we live where scheduling jobs in real time around the availability of field staff and finding staff with the right qualifications and licences for the job feel impossible, completing these tasks in paper is not feasible.
In a paper world it is almost a guarantee that you won’t have the visibility to see clashes in schedules or if there are any conflicts in maintained equipment or staff licensing. It’s no excuse anymore to send uncertified labour or at risk equipment to client sites, just because it’s how you have always done it.
With a digital system in place you can use drop and drag technology to schedule jobs and fix any conflicts to ensure all jobs can be completed effectively. When scheduling jobs, the system raises red flags if the staff assigned to a job don’t have the correct qualifications, so you can reassign accordingly. If staff assigned to jobs don’t have the correct training or well-maintained equipment, people could be seriously hurt and legislators are there to prosecute ignorant behaviour.
With a system in place that does all of the work for you, ensuring safety and productivity at the same time you can meet the high demands of the market and create a culture of success.
