Call2Field is a user-friendly call management system that makes managing incoming calls effortless. Let’s take a look at how the Call Management feature helps streamline your business operations.
The user-friendly Call Logging feature allows you to log and manage incoming calls, letting you schedule jobs and assign them to engineers. When the engineer completes the job, they can record the details of work carried out by filing a field report against that call using Call2Field Mobile. They can also fill out a risk survey, record parts used and answer any questions you configure for this call type.
Call Monitoring allows you to keep an eye on the status of open and recently completed calls. A colour-coded system instantly shows you the call’s status, and you can filter calls by type and site location. You’ll also see the remaining response time, making it simple to prioritise more urgent calls.
Your Call Dashboard gives you a live view of whatever information you want to see. For example, you could display unassigned calls and have them disappear once you’ve assigned them to an engineer. This real-time information makes it simple to stay on top of call scheduling, even when you’re busy.
This feature plots engineer locations and colour-coded outstanding jobs onto a map, allowing you to prioritise jobs and assign the nearest available engineer to the job. Double click the job for more information, and also see home addresses and warehouse locations so you can ensure engineers’ time is used efficiently.
This feature gives you an Outlook-style calendar to make it easy to see scheduled calls and view engineer availability, as well as enabling you to manage engineer sick days and annual leave. You’re able to assign calls to engineers with a simple drag and drop function, clicking on the call to view more information about it or filtering calls by category.
