Service Dispatching

Service dispatching is automated and I receive my maintenance jobs directly on my mobile app. With the mobile app I also have access to all experts and managers and it is super easy to set up a chat or conference call.

Emergency Situation

Every Wednesday we do an emergency exercise. Everyone needs to assemble and evacuate and I can use automated call-outs to alert my team, see that they respond and ensure they are safe.
