"The only consistent thing in our business is inconsistency."

Manager
Field Services Company

Industrial services company wanted to better plan and assign employees to various field services and construction jobs depending on schedules of ongoing work tasks

  • Word-of-mouth and Excel spreadsheets were used to communicate about field worker availability for upcoming jobs
  • Lack of company-wide database about ongoing jobs, assigned workers, expected completion dates significantly slowed down planning tasks
  • Utilization of field workforce was lower due to inefficient planning of resources
  • Poor visibility into employee availability to take on new jobs contributed to substiantial HR effort to recruit and hire new field workers
  • Inefficient planning and job staffing activities increased operational costs
