What Is A Job Scheduler?

Job scheduling software, otherwise known as a “job scheduler”, is a piece of software that allows you to create prioritised day-to-day work schedules, the main benefit being businesses’ ability to maximise their engineers’ efficiency.

You would use a job scheduler to assign jobs based on priority or due date, and also assign contracts and projects to your engineers from a planner board. By doing this you can track the progress of your engineers’ day-to-day jobs, and prioritise and re-allocate jobs to improve efficiency and productivity. Your engineers will be able to get more done in less time.

But this isn’t all a job scheduler can do…

You can also reduce the cost, time and difficulties associated with administration. Create your own contracts, define tasks and checklists, raise invoices, and calculate expenditure, which includes labour costs, mileage, travel time, parts, and equipment.

Provide your engineers with information about the equipment on-site so that they know what jobs are waiting for parts, schedule part servicing automatically once parts usage is logged, automate the requisition of parts, and create your own checklists and inspections to be carried out by your engineers before, during and after job completion.

Plan effortlessly and improve your efficiency with a job scheduler

Alert engineers that are on-call and update them with the information of a job available for them, wherever they are. Create and edit your own resources and checklists for your engineers. Reduce manual intervention by automating your processes which will save your engineers time, but also your office staffs time which they can better use to help grow the business.

Implementing a job scheduler will do wonders for your business from start to finish, giving you more visibility and improving your business’ efficiency. For more information on how a job scheduler will be beneficial to your business, you can request a FREE Demo here or contact us.
