Field Service Scheduling System

The Field Service Scheduling System Software opens quickly and is highly customizable. There are dozens or hundreds of preferences and options. It displays both work orders and appointments. Most information can be accessed with three mouse clicks or less. When you hover over a work order, a popup displays important information. You can double click for details. There are dozens of shortcuts for tasks such as creating a sales proposal, purchase orders, rescheduling, invoicing, and more. Work orders can be resized and dragged into new time slots. Completed work orders will have a line drawn through them, and there is a preference to have them drop off the board. Using the Dispatch Board profile, you can create multiple views. With each view, you control which technicians are shown, ordering, departments, work order status, work order types, and more.

Service Scheduling Made Easy

Options and Preferences
There are hundreds of scheduling preferences and options that control look, layout, color codes, behavior, time and date formats, and more. You can change the colors of most every aspect. Our Service Scheduler is one of the very few that allows for service technicians to be listed across the top of the board or on the side of the board.

Service Scheduling Layout Profiles
The Profile feature allows you to set up the schedule board (using hundreds of options) and save those preferences with a name. You may then switch back and forth between profiles. Profiles can be used to switch between departments, locations, branches, technicians, etc. Profiles can be public or private.

Work Orders That Can Be Customized
There is plenty of room to write detailed descriptions. There are special fields for a short problem code, long detailed description, directions, and memo.

Track Workorder Status
Work orders have several statuses including scheduled, enroute, working, complete, cancelled, and more. You can change the status at any time. Using our field service management app called Aptora Mobile, your technicians can change the status from their smart phone.

Color Coding
Work orders and appointments can be color coded. Status, type, and priority are all color specific.

Conflict Checking
This feature checks to see if the employee has a conflicting work order or appointment already saved. You have the option of double booking.

Technician Skills Check
The skills check features looks at a predefined skill set and compares it to what is needed to perform a given work order. You will be warned if you are trying to send the “wrong” technician.

Appointments
Appointments can be displayed on the Dispatch Board. Appointments can be marked as “private”, which keeps the contents confidential.
