San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 12, 2011
Epiphany Inc., a leading vendor of on-demand business management software for mid-size and large companies, today announced its new e-Dispatch NetSuite application for NetSuite’s SuiteCloud Computing Platform. E-Dispatch lets the user assign a technician to a work order, based on skill-set, location and availability, through a simple drag-and-drop interface. The SuiteApp can help NetSuite customers improve profit margins by reducing the time and costs associated with field service, new equipment installation, and other tasks.
The announcement was made today at SuiteWorld 2011 - NetSuite’s inaugural conference designed for NetSuite customers, solution providers, independent software providers, developers and system integrators. SuiteWorld 2011 is being held in San Francisco.
NetSuite’s SuiteCloud is a comprehensive offering of on-demand products, development tools and services designed to help customers and commercial software developers take advantage of the significant economic benefits of cloud computing. The complete SuiteCloud offering includes NetSuite’s multi-tenant, always-on SaaS infrastructure; the NetSuite Business Suite of applications for Accounting/ERP, CRM and Ecommerce; and comprehensive development tools to create on-demand business applications on top of NetSuite.
“The overhead of dispatching technicians into the field can place a severe burden on costs,” says Brenda Brinkley, CEO of Epiphany. “E-Dispatch pulls information from human resources and customer service and makes it simple for the dispatcher to match the technicians with the job. This can help save time, lower costs, and improve customer service.”
E-Dispatch features a dispatcher-board interface to display a geographical map view of work orders, both assigned and unassigned, as well as technicians, status, schedules, and other relevant detail. Dispatchers can drill into each technician’s information to learn work order assignments, unassigned status, availability for current shift, on-call status, unavailable status, location, and skill-set. To complete the assignment the dispatcher drags-and-drops the technician’s name to the work order.
Working with NetSuite
The SuiteApp installs quickly because e-Dispatch automatically pulls enterprise information from NetSuite’s database. E-Dispatch can run on any NetSuite user platform, including the iPhone. There’s no need for separate screens or systems; the dispatch team can save time and costs through more efficient scheduling processes.
“Dispatching is often complex and the way field services organizations optimize the assignment of work-orders can have a significant impact on customer satisfaction and the bottom,” says Guido Haarmans, Vice President Developer Programs and Business Development at NetSuite. “e-Dispatch helps streamline the process so NetSuite customers can boost efficiency by eliminating errors and wasted time.”
