Field Service and Job Management by SMS

Client: Virgin Media

Tags

Introduction


Virgin Media wanted an SMS job management and scheduling system for their field service engineers that would enable them request data relating to each installation via SMS from their call centre. Field engineers were previously reporting waiting times of up to 40 minutes per call which was significantly reducing their productivity and the numbers of installations they could complete per day.

Challenge


To create an SMS job management system that would efficiently record all inbound and outbound messages and archive old requests. For incoming requests Virgin Media required a system that would allow an instant reply through a pop up box, use of keywords for specific requests and a system to indicate to all call centre staff what requests are being handled.

Solution


Púca developed a custom version of their Message Manager system for Virgin Media which enables the call centre to effectively communicate with staff and vice versa. Inbound SMS requests can be easily monitored and handled with SMS keyword functionality for efficient distribution of messages to personnel. All jobs and related responses can be tracked and archived and all inbound and outbound messages managed effectively.

Results


Increased productivity, improved customer service and cost reductions have been experienced as a result of the deployment of the SMS job management system. Other departments within Virgin Media have also deployed Púca’s SMS solutions and SMS is now used in relation to prompt bill payment, new connections and service maintenance visits

Testimonials

Our field engineers now communicate with our contact centre in a much more efficient manner and the system has proven very easy to use and manage.
