B2W SCHEDULE FEATURES
Intuitive, interactive dispatching
B2W Schedule provides a day-by-day view of resource assignments, resource needs, equipment moves, and material orders. Assigning or re-assigning employees and equipment to job sites or places is done with drag-and-drop simplicity, and assignments can be planned as far out into the future as needed.
Users can view and manage scheduling information for a day, multiple days, a week or two weeks. They can also apply multiple filters and groupings, toggle between single and multi-day views and navigate quickly between past, current and future dates. An unlimited number of user-defined views can be stored, and the same views are accessible on a desktop of mobile device.
Assignment of moves to drivers and equipment
The move queue keeps track of all equipment moves. Transport crews, comprised of drivers and low beds, can be created and then assigned to equipment moves with a simple drag-and-drop interface.
Map view to assist with scheduling and logistics
The advanced map function lets users view job sites and equipment locations in relation to each other geographically so they can schedule resources, fill needs and move equipment with maximum efficiency. They can also create boundaries with geofencing and incorporate real-time information on traffic, accidents and road construction delays.
Mobile tablet and desktop functionality
Maximize scheduling with mobile tablet as well as desktop capabilities. From resolving conflicts and creating needs to filling assignments and generating moves, B2W Schedule keeps everyone in touch and up to date – even when they are on the move.
Unified with B2W Track
Production targets created in B2W Schedule can be compared to real-time results from the B2W Track field tracking application. Field logs can also be created using information from B2W Schedule, and resource requests can be communicated directly from B2W Track.
Unified with B2W Maintain
Knowing when an asset is down for repair, scheduled for maintenance or expected to be back in service is vital for the dispatching and scheduling team. This information from B2W Maintain can accessed in real time within B2W Schedule when a company uses both B2W applications.
B2W Schedule includes powerful reporting, dashboards, and export capabilities, allowing companies to drill deeper into their data, analyze moves, view crew availability, track production targets and summarize activity. Subscriptions can also be set up, so selected employees get what they need to see when they need to see it.
Automated conflict identification and resolution
B2W Schedule proactively searches for instances when resources are unavailable, double assigned or being moved to the wrong site. The application then produces an organized list of these conflicts and presents users with the necessary information and resources to resolve them in a logical, methodical manner.
