In the blockbuster hit ‘Back to the Future’ the Doc describes the energy required to give the time machine that last burst of super charge that will send it hurtling it into the future. The solution was a single bolt of lighting. The Dilemma, as explained by the good Doc was that “you never know when or where it’s going to strike”.
When it comes to automated scheduling there are plenty of products on the market that can handle the ‘When”. The ‘when’ is the easy part. The ‘When’ can be handled by a glorified hanging calendar, which is essentially what most scheduling softwares are at their core.
The mobile service industry does not have it so easy when it comes to selecting a software that does it all. For any business that goes mobile / visits customer locations, the ‘Where’ is the all important variable. Unlike the hair stylist who is always ready at his / her chair, scheduling a mobile service is like trying to strike a moving target.
Employing the use of an automated scheduling software that puts together the ‘When’ and the ‘Where’ will make all the difference between companies that are winners and losers.
In the case of Routezilla I would venture to make a comparison case with an Uber driver. Whereas Uber drivers are able to show his customer ‘Where’ they are at this very moment, they can’t tell you where they’re going to be a week from now at this same exact time. Understanding geography is what enables a software like Routezilla to book your mobile service customers well into the future. It is this core understanding that enables Routezilla to see where exactly you or your mobile crews will be working a week from today.
