British Gas is supporting 6,500 field engineers with a new mobile resource management solution from @Road.

British Gas is using the @Road Taskforce system to make sure the most appropriate engineer is sent on each call.

The system synchronises call centre data and job dispatch information with the movement of engineers in the field.

Andy Burling, British Gas Services head of planning and development, said,  "With this deployment we want to further automate the way work is dispatched and improve the productivity of our engineers in the field.”

The system is now being rolled out to the company's 6,500 gas field engineers.
