Work Order Management from Mobile Device
Last week we talked about the five benefits of using a desktop for managing work orders, but what about using mobile devices?
In most cases, work order management (WOM) is best done from a desktop. This computer acts as the hub, sending information out to other users. For service-based businesses, the project manager or scheduler uses the desktop. Crews and others working off-site can access this information from their mobile device, using a streamlined version of the WOM software. While the mobile access isn’t as comprehensive as on a desktop, mobile users hold a wealth of information in their hands.
All WOM software offers different features, but let’s look at what users of Service Proz‘ mobile application can do from their phone.
- Check schedules
- See maps and routes to job sites
- Review and adjust project details
- Comment on project status
- Add before and after project photos
- Get client sign-offs on projects
- Mark jobs ready for billing
The Service Proz solution was made for small service-based businesses. Once the software is set up, the app’s many features will increase productivity and billable hours.
