Understanding Sonar’s Scheduling Features

Sonar’s scheduling module is a multifaceted solution that provides this functionality, offering a condensed view of scheduled jobs for field technicians.

Weekly View Overview

The Weekly View serves as a high-level overview of all scheduled activities, offering a bird’s-eye perspective on what lies ahead. With this feature, telecom companies can anticipate service appointments, allocate resources judiciously, and prepare for busy periods.

Daily Schedules and Service Appointments

Daily schedules are the granular breakdown of tasks and appointments, providing a detailed roadmap for each day. Companies can manage and assign specific service appointments, ensuring that technicians are dispatched promptly and efficiently.

Technician Assignment

Efficient resource allocation is pivotal in telecommunications, and Sonar’s scheduling module excels in this domain. It allows telecom companies to assign the right technician with the right skill set to the right job, thereby minimizing service delays and ensuring expertise at every doorstep.

Managing and Tracking Tasks

It’s crucial to have a system that tracks and manages tasks in real-time. Sonar’s scheduling module enables companies to monitor the progress of tasks, ensuring that no job is left incomplete or unattended. This implements an organized way for technicians to have a visual representation of their responsibilities. 

Drive Time Calculation

The Sonar Scheduling pane will automatically calculate the amount of time it will take for your technician to arrive at the site for a job. This is calculated by Google Maps using the Serviceable Address or Location that both jobs are assigned to.

Real-Time Updates and Notifications

Sonar’s scheduling module facilitates real-time updates and notifications to both customers and field technicians. This feature keeps customers informed about their appointments, ensuring transparency and reducing no-shows, while technicians receive real-time updates on job assignments, enhancing efficiency and accountability.

Individual Job View

With individual jobs from both the table and dispatcher views as well, the individual job view provides the ability to take actions on the job (such as scheduling and assigning users, unscheduling, editing the job details, etc.) and view all of it’s associated information and details in one place.

Benefits of Using Sonar’s Scheduling Features
