         As part of an ongoing series, we will continue to post category winners and honorable mention winners in the Innovative Product Awards. Here is an Honorable Mention winner in the Computer Software category: Wynne Systems’ TechConnect.

Product: TechConnect

Manufacturer: Wynne Systems 

Key Innovation:

Specifically designed for rental service departments (and created by a knowledgeable team with decades of rental software development experience), TechConnect is designed to enable dispatchers and technicians to achieve more each day. Inventive features like automated assignment notifications and the ability to pinpoint exact locations within job sites streamline the dispatching process and reduce technician idle time. 

Manufacturer’s Description:

Field service work represents a major source of revenue for rental companies everywhere. But despite the importance such work has on their bottom lines, countless service departments manage their field service scheduling with the bare minimum—whiteboards and spreadsheets.

Ill-equipped to handle the complexity and real-time nature of rental service work, these approaches place a heavy burden on dispatchers to keep things running smoothly. Additionally, these low-tech management tools require dispatchers to communicate assignments via manual phone calls or emails or for technicians to come into branches to pick up paper documents. Both of these flawed workflows significantly detract from the limited hours technicians have available each day.

TechConnect, Wynne Systems' field service scheduling solution, is designed to streamline the dispatching process and reduce technician idle time. From day, week, and month calendar views, TechConnect enables dispatchers to quickly assign work to technicians via an intuitive drag and drop interface. Once assigned, technicians are immediately notified of their task via automatic text message or email, saving both dispatchers and technicians considerable time.

TechConnect also allows dispatchers to specify exact locations within job sites. Thanks to an integration with Google Maps, technicians can then follow step-by-step instructions to reach the precise area specified. This feature spares technicians the hassle, confusion, and time-sink of having to look around job sites in order to find assets in need of service.

Productive technicians are hard to come by and cost good money to keep. But given how much revenue service work brings in for so many rental organizations, such expenses are well worth it. By eliminating the inconveniences that prevent from them to getting down to work, TechConnect elevates technician productivity, and ultimately, enables service departments to contribute even greater value to their companies.
