Case Study 5

The Challenge Faced in Dispatch Management Operations
Trouble with Dispatch Management Operations comes in all shapes and sizes. Not long ago we came across an electrical and mechanical company that offers a range of services. They specialize in commercial and residential Low Voltage (LV) work, external telephone infrastructure, underground cable distribution networks, switchboards and control panel installation, air conditioning and so on. Needless to say, their sales and services include fieldwork and require a lot of dispatch management operations.
The company’s CEO, Jack Leong expressed concerns that they were having trouble transferring all the information to the sales and services team simultaneously via phone calls. Letting all the team members know about the job orders that come up as quickly as possible became a challenge since not everyone is at the same job location. Basically, dispatch management operations were hard to handle manually.
“Finding field agents or sales reps suitable for certain jobs who are available and at a nearby location was a big challenge because one can only make so many phone calls at a time”
In fact, for a lot of these companies, assigning tasks and finding right people to send to the job comes as a challenge. The reason is that, as soon as a job order or a follow up order comes in, you need to send in the right people to that job without losing time and resources. Otherwise, the longer it takes for you to look through your agent’s files to find the suitable fit, the more you risk losing your customers to competitors. Or worse, give way for a bad review.
Winds of Change
That’s where Custella comes in. With a field service optimization software, they could easily take care of the dispatch management operations just through that one software on their mobile devices. With Custella, when a job order came in, it can automatically assign the job to the right person by analyzing the skillset of the dispatcher using its scheduling and dispatch feature.

“We’re saving so much time and resources. It saved me from the headache of finding the right fit and calling up my dispatchers to see who is nearest to the job order. I just tap on my phone and the rest is done for me” says Jack.
