West Midlands-based property maintenance firm BMS Property Care is preparing to deploy the next version of Impact Applications' hosted workforce management software to improve its job scheduling.
The firm began using the software last year to reduce field engineers' volume of paperwork. It anticipates annual savings of £10,000 in administration costs through the use of the hosted mobile application.
Wayne Davis, operations director at BMS Property Care, said, "Jobsheets needed to be filled in onsite and each week the paperwork would be processed."
To reduce the paperwork, Davis selected a hosted mobile application called ImpactResponse from Impact Application which uses the mobile internet to schedule job allocation.
Field engineers use XDA 2s smartphones from O2 to access the application, which provides them with information on the jobs they are scheduled to work on.
