Vital Tools for HVAC Service
Successful HVAC service comes from getting everyone on the same page. With Next Service, HVAC providers have a complete toolkit to manage everything involved with service delivery so that every job exceeds expectations.
Scheduling and Dispatch
Color coding creates an easy way to match job requirements with the skills and schedules of technicians available. All in-progress jobs appear on an intuitive scheduling board, where you can drill into details or filter information. Map views highlight the location of each tech in the field, and emulation capabilities help schedulers see what techs see in their app to resolve issues quickly.
The location of every part, tool, and piece of equipment is visible to managers, all but eliminating shrinkage. Techs can scan the bar code on a part to instantly associate it with a sales order, and returns are authorized from the field. Close integration with scheduling helps forecast upcoming inventory requirements to order and stock trucks.
The app gives HVAC technicians access to the information and documentation they need in any situation. You can configure the app in multiple ways. Techs can also access it offline, so it’s available even when the internet isn’t. First-time fix rate, client engagement, and even technician morale all improves with an app built for the realities of fieldwork.
