Scheduling optimized – DispoControl offers new functions
With DispoControl, Sycor.Rental, Sycor.Fleet and Sycor.Dealermanagement offer an easy to use planning tool for the efficient scheduling of machines, equipment, accessories and personnel. The further optimization of DispoControl which has now been completed makes the scheduler's work even easier.
DispoControl at several workstations and across locations, with a convincing graphical representation of the processes and comprehensive access to all relevant data in real time, ensures an effective workflow with short processing times. Schedulers were the focus of the newly completed further optimization of DispoControl: In order to simplify their work, a large amount of new information is clearly depicted on the graphical user interface and additional filter functions have been built in. In addition to availability of equipment and machines, including the assigned accessories and employees, planned service dates can now be viewed as well.
For every rental order, it is also possible to tell at a glance to what extent it has already been invoiced. On the corresponding scheduling bar, clear symbols also show whether there has been an availability report or rental cancellation, if specific delivery times have been entered for an order or whether attendants, setup personnel, permits or traffic management are required. The quick info function provides additional information in real time on the various schedule types and the symbols on the scheduling bar. If a symbol indicates for example that delivery times have been entered for a certain schedule, the quick info function lets the user know by what time or from what time the delivery should take place, or whether the customer has specified a desired timeframe. Each scheduler can individually configure what information is displayed.
The systematic, purpose oriented expansion of DispoControl's filter functions also speeds up and facilitates work processes that are part of scheduling. It is possible to filter by employees, assigned permanent staff or required qualifications. The filter "Available on construction site" displays rental assets for which an availability report has been submitted but which have not been returned. This allows trip planning to be optimized and transport distances to be reduced.
