FrontRange Solutions launches HEAT Plus Mobile to reduce help desk costs and improve service management productivity

  • 02 December, 2008 15:15

<p>FrontRange SolutionsTM, a leading developer of business software solutions, today announced the launch of HEAT® Plus Mobile, a new addition to its award-winning Service Desk solution that enables field-based technicians to access and update critical service management information through a BlackBerry® smartphone.</p>
<p>With increasing numbers of service management technicians having to cover multiple sites, HEAT Plus Mobile enables operatives to be more productive, optimising the time spent on-site, between locations and ensuring that the service organisation is always running at peak performance.</p>
<p>Using HEAT Plus Mobile, not only can technicians be alerted to new problem tickets, they can also update and close calls as soon as the work is done, no matter where they are. They can even open new tickets while on-site. This offers a significant time and cost saving over having to wait for engineers to update tickets from their desk.</p>
<p>Jason Holmberg, the Senior HEAT Product Manager at FrontRange Solutions said, “HEAT Plus Mobile turns a BlackBerry smartphone into a powerful go-anywhere Service Desk client, ensuring that technicians never miss an assignment and make optimal use of their time. With 24x7 access to mission critical data, this dramatically improves the productivity of the whole service organisation.”</p>
<p>Key features available in HEAT Plus Mobile include:</p>
<p>Real-Time Wireless Sync – Configurable Real-Time sync capabilities remove the dependency on wireless connectivity to access data.</p>
<p>Log Incidents and track assignments – When onsite, technicians tend to be asked by customers for assistance on other items. Now, technicians can log and close those requests, ensuring the Service Desk is tracking all work completed.</p>
<p>View and edit information – Everything a technician needs to complete a service request, including Call Type driven details, incident history, and access to previous assignments.</p>
<p>Configurability – Easy configuration options allow for settings of records, and even fields available on the mobile device.</p>
<p>Full Form Rule Support – HEAT Plus Mobile supports all the autofills, validations, and validation constraints that can be designed in HEAT Service &amp; Support.</p>
