New technician labor tracking options
The spring release of Service Pro provides field service firms with new options for tracking technician labor time allocation in the field, enabling further insight into field productivity. Technicians can now have multiple labor entries on a single work order, and can now also allocate time to specific tasks or inspections within a work order.ctive each worker is in completing the same task.
New Service Contract type – Meter-based
Service organizations that work on capital equipment assets within a preventive maintenance service contract may need to offer services consistent with asset usage, rather than calendar-based interval. Service Pro now offers meter-based contract management, which automatically calculates services dates based on equipment meter usage, whether the meter is updated in the back office, with the mobile app by technician, or automatically with an IoT-based equipment connection.
