Drive up service performance by 10%: solve the workforce scheduling puzzle.
This webinar will demystify the process of scheduling your mobile workforce. Effective scheduling results in great improvements to your working process, but how can you make it effective without truly understanding what it is? Saul Sherry (Editor of Service Management) and Ian Mapp (Product Marketing Director at IFS 360 Scheduling) explain the nuts and bolts of the automated scheduling process, and what it means to your company’s bottom line.

Strategies for solving the scheduling puzzle – and how they work in real life!
This webinar gives real life examples of scheduling strategies that have worked. Different approaches work for different situations, so how will you know what works for you? Ian Mapp and David Bochenski (VP, Business Development at IFS 360 Scheduling) will share insights and explore how different companies are solving this puzzle – with and without the use of automated scheduling software tools. They will be joined by industry expert, Brian Wathen, to share his experiences in managing and improving workforce scheduling and service performance. Brian has amassed 30 years’ experience in managing field service operations both within the UK and internationally. Much of this experience has been gained in delivering services within the IT industry on a commercial basis, heading field workforces of several hundred staff.
