Scheduling

Vixen Building Services and Property Maintenance includes a number of aids to scheduling and engineer allocation. These address urgent problem resolution (nearest/quickest operative) as well as route optimisation and advanced routing for planned-maintenance.

Other useful features include continuous dynamic resource scheduling in response to travel delays, extended job duration, cancellations, absences and escalated priorities - with no manual intervention.
