When a call is assigned to a tech on the dispatch board the tech will be alerted on his field unit.

When he clicks on a call it will display specific information relating to the call, including ticket comments entered in dispatch and selected information from the site record. He will click on Acknowledge resulting in a status change being sent back to dispatch.

Note the color changed on the dispatch board. Also, the tech is now able to start completing the ticket. He clicks on Start Travel.

A list of parts normally stocked on the truck are displayed. He can select a part by scrolling up/down the list and click on the desired part(s) or…

… he can start typing in a few characters of the part number or description and all parts that contain the characters will be displayed. He will then click on the part desired.

He will then click save.

He enters the serial number and clicks save.

Parts pricing has been added to the billing summary area.

Next, the tech can click on Work Done codes.

By clicking on the work done codes used they will be selected.

… the detail will be displayed for the number of service tickets previously requested.

By clicking on Request Purchase Order…

…the tech enters as few or as many characters of the vendor’s name and a request is sent back to the server for vendors who have those characters in their name.

A list of vendors who have those characters in their name will be displayed for the tech. The tech clicks on the one desired…

… and a request is sent to the server for the PO.

The PO number is returned and tagged to the ticket.

Flow of information from technician

eMapping will let you see all the ticket locations on your dispatch board on Google Maps, in addition to your vehicle locations.

Your customer locations are identified as “balloons” and are color coded to represent the call status (open, travel, start,etc). When you place the cursor on a balloon it will display specific information as seen below.

Your truck locations are identified as a truck. By placing the cursor on a truck it will display specific information regarding the truck.

Directions to the next ticket can be acquired by clicking on a ticket …

… then clicking on a truck. Directions will be displayed in the Directions panel.

You can then email those directions to your technician.

Most Cellular Providers have an Email to SMS gateway. This gateway will let me send an email to an AT&T customer that will be turned into a text message for his cell phone.

Other Cellular Providers have different gateways.

You must use a GPS provider in order for eMapping to work. Here is a list of current providers we work with:

  • - Complete Innovations

  • - GPS Insight

  • - Network Fleet

  • - Reltima

  • - Telogis

  • - Trackem

  • - Tracking

  • - Trimble

  • - Wireless Matrix

Flow of information to customer

Flow of information from customer

When the ticket is assigned it will show up on the websites as assigned.

When the technician starts traveling the website will be updated to report Traveling.

When the technician starts working it will report working.

When the ticket is put on hold it will report that to the customer.

You are able to filter what you see by clicking on the drop down and selecting fields.

Within each drop down there is filter selections to choose from.

In this case we filtered on the Problem Code of “PM”.

Phase Two (future) enhancements:

  • Let the customer create a service ticket

  • Display ticket details (labor, parts, flat rates)

  • Display site details (begin and end dates, equipment)

  • Display the customer’s account balance

  • Ability to filter a login so it can only see specific Sites and the tickets for those sites

  • Display the customer’s logo as well as the client’s logo
