Zoho SmartScheduler™

This personal assistant won’t even ask for a raise

If you’re a field service or construction business owner using Zoho CRM, dropping everything you’re doing to set appointments for your technicians or crews is a hassle – and, it’s even more bothersome when scheduling involves coordinating with someone else.  At the end of the day, you probably do set all your appointments, but all the time you spend doing so can really put a damper on daily productivity.  For most people, this is just the reality one faces when setting any kind of appointment.  But…with Zoho SmartScheduler™, you don’t have to do any of that extra work.

It’s almost like hiring a personal assistant to make appointments for you – only less finicky and definitely less talkative.  Here’s exactly what Zoho SmartScheduler™ does:

Zoho SmartScheduler™ makes setting sales appointments a breeze

Rather than sift through your roster of employees and sort them by expertise, location, availability, or any other quality that might be necessary to set an appointment or schedule a job, the Zoho SmartScheduler™ does that for you.  Search through employees by:

  • Calendar availability
  • Proximity to client
  • Area of expertise
  • Predefined territory (if different than location)
  • Any other data that can be collected in your CRM

Using parameters you set, the Zoho SmartScheduler™ will then recommend possible appointment times for you or you staff.  What’s more. the SmartScheduler™ is part of the FieldTech suite of apps, so you can do even more with Zoho, from quoting to scheduling to managing your entire field service or construction operation from one software suite.

Schedule Field Service or Construction Work Orders, too

The SmartScheduler job dispatch software uses a the same engine you use to set sales appointments to schedule work orders, too.  And, that goes for individual technicians or even entire crews.  Some features of the work order scheduling software:

  1. Schedule techs or crews to jobs, or vice-versa, all via drag-and-drop functionality
  2. Schedule equipment or inventory to accompany your crews or techs, such as trucks, surveying equipment, and more.
  3. Crews and technicians can clock into/out of jobs automatically by starting their work orders.
  4. Just like sales appointments, all work order scheduling activities are written back to the CRM as events.
  5. Integrates with Field Service Management software, plus a host of other field service/construction apps.

Part of a whole suite of Field Service software – all integrated with Zoho
