Your day with (and without) Fieldfusion

Your day with (and without) Fieldfusion

8:30 am

Time to start the day.
Let's see what it's got in store...

With Fieldfusion

Your engineer opens the Fieldfusion app, checks-in to let the office staff know they are about to start their day, and begins navigation to the first job. Intelligent scheduling means it's impossible for your engineer to be booked into two places at once, so they know exactly where to go first!

Without Fieldfusion

Your engineer opens their generic calendar app and sees they're scheduled on two different jobs at 8:30am! They then spends the morning calling around, trying to find out where they're supposed to be. Fieldfusion's integrated scheduling and planning functions eliminate duplication.

10:30 am

It should be about time to celebrate a job well done with a nice cup of tea...

With Fieldfusion

First job of the day complete, and your office staff know this in real-time because they've just been notified that their engineer has electronically signed off the job. Since they're still in the Fieldfusion mobile app they check their second appointment for the day and head-off (after a cuppa of course).

Without Fieldfusion

Not only did your engineer arrive late to site after the earlier confusion, but they're not being allowed on site! They can't find their Risk Assessment and Method Statement to allow them to begin work. Fieldfusion allows the attachment of customised RAMS and other crucial documents to specific jobs.

12:30 pm

Job done, ready for some lunch...

With Fieldfusion

The second job is wrapping up as planned but this is a really fussy customer. Your engineer sees a note on the job page to take pictures of their completed work, which they do through the Fieldfusion app, attaching the picture to the job to allow quick access if needed in the future.

Without Fieldfusion

Finally, the first job is finished but the day is now massively behind, nobody knows this at the office because the engineer has been too busy to call in and let anybody know. A paper job sheet is tediously filled in and thrown into a pile of papers in the van. Fieldfusion's integrated documentation eliminates paper job sheets.

Lunchtime

1:30 pm

Lunch done. Time to move on to the next job...

With Fieldfusion

Signing in to the third job of the day and the site requires RAMS, the engineer has these on the job page in their Fieldfusion app, a few clicks and the documents are emailed to the site manager and they're free to crack on with the work at hand.

Without Fieldfusion

Arrives at the second job but gets a call from the office — it's about a job they did last week — the customer is complaining about how it was left, the job sheet is nowhere to be found so the engineer can't prove the job was signed off! An unpaid re-visit will need to be rescheduled to keep the customer happy!

3:00 pm

The last job of the day is nearly finished...

With Fieldfusion

Extra help is needed to finish the last job of the day on-schedule. Back in the office they glance at a map updated in real-time to find the closest engineer to re-route. The re-routed engineer gets an instant notification via Fieldfusion's integrated messaging function and dashes over to help out.

Without Fieldfusion

Extra help is needed on a job that's already well behind, the dispatcher back in the office isn't sure where anybody is or who is available to help because engineers have been too busy to keep them in-the-loop.

4:30 pm

End of the day. Hopefully traffic is decent...

With Fieldfusion

The engineer takes one last look at Fieldfusion's integrated task list to make sure they haven't missed anything. Good news! All jobs are complete and relevant documents are signed-off and stored safely in the Fieldfusion system. Time to head straight home!

Without Fieldfusion

Unable to find anyone to help out, the job has gone over. A return visit will need to be scheduled, and the last job of the day will also need moving, losing trust from customers and messing up the existing schedule.

Its a no-brainer. See how Fieldfusion can solve your day-to-day problems today...
