Advance your field service scheduling capabilities with fleet tracking to provide a clear view of where your team is at all times. Using Simpro’s Simtrac, see which field staff are available for new jobs and calculate the distance between a job and the site so you can dispatch the closest available staff member on-the-go.

Improve communication with two-way sync between field and office. You can also inform staff of schedule changes with in-app auto-notifications on Simpro Mobile, email and SMS add-on.
Review and gain insights from jobs and projects for future scheduling with scheduling-specific reports. Use the Labor Productivity report to see how productive your employees and contractors are, or use the Schedule Comparison report to compare your team member’s actual results to the initially scheduled timeframe. Finally, understand the details and costs of each schedule with the Schedule Breakdown report.
We can update our technicians schedule directly through Simpro, they’ll get that update immediately, and they can stop what they’re doing, pack up their stuff, and head over to deal with an emergency situation. I think that alone helps our clients feel like we are truly giving them that same-day service, and that we’re showing up when we can when they need us most.
