Toa Technologies has added a new module to its workforce management tools that allows users to communicate with each other within the system, an obvious-enough capability but one that was nevertheless lacking in any such product in the market.
The company’s ETAdirect Smart Collaboration connects people in the field to each other based on a variety of contextual and location-based information parameters.
For example, if field workers are missing equipment while on the road, they don't have to use a smartphone and log in to email just to contact dispatch for help locating another piece of equipment. Using ETAdirect Smart Collaboration, they quickly identify and connect with a colleague who is located nearby and has the equipment, skill and availability.
Yuval Brisker, co-founder and CEO of Toa Technologies, said: "The more connected service organizations are to what's happening in the field, the better they perform. Collaboration and communication is faster and more dynamic using ETAdirect Smart Collaboration, because it reflects real-time information within a single, centralized platform. The result is a mobile workforce management solution that provides a superior and interactive user experience while driving tremendous efficiencies for our customers and, most importantly, a better service experience for their customers."
