Even for those workshops that have moved over to digital clocking, there are still challenges. One central clocking station can cause technician queues at busy periods, clocking inaccuracy, plus all the time wasted with technicians wandering across the workshop between jobs. However, there is an easier way. Mobile Service Technician will help transform your workshop operations.
Mobile Service Technician is a simple-to-use, real-time, integrated mobile workshop clocking system for Autoline Drive. It has been designed to make job clocking straightforward and reporting on it easy. Accessed via a mobile tablet device, it can dramatically reduce the time your technicians spend clocking on and off jobs and away from their workshop bays.
Say you already have an electronic clocking system, is it fixed in once place which means that someone has the responsibility of making sure your technicians walk to and from the clocking station to be manually clocked on or off? Does this create a queue of technicians waiting to be clocked off and frantic job allocation? What if your controller gets behind, forgets to clock someone off or has a day off and a backlog builds up? How did you update the DMS? What if the customer calls for an update – can you tell them what is really happening? What is the knock-on effect in the rest of the dealership if any one of these things happen?
Mobile Service Technician integrates seamlessly with the Autoline Drive DMS and it is completely mobile. Your technicians no longer have to go back and forth to clock a job or raise an issue they can do it straightaway. They are responsible for their own time. If you want accuracy you need to use Mobile Service Technician.
Hendy Group, a successful, family-owned business, is constantly looking at ways to improve its operations, particularly through the use of technology. However, technician job clocking and its perceived inaccuracy is one area that had proved frustrating.
