MAYKOR Expands Business With Managed Field Worker Scheduling Services Using ClickSoftware

Mobile workforce management solution to provide rapid ROI through scheduling efficiencies and mobile connectivity

BURLINGTON, Massachusetts and MOSCOW, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

MAYKOR, the leading Russian provider of IT and business process outsourcing, is now providing  managed dispatch and scheduling services to its customers using scheduling and mobility solutions from ClickSoftware Technologies Ltd. (NasdaqGS: CKSW), the leading provider of mobile workforce management solutions for the service industry. In addition, the outsourcing company is also relying on ClickSoftware to streamline their own operations.

MAYKOR's new service offering is designed for large, geographically diverse customers with large numbers of mobile field workers in industries including IT, and maintenance and supply providers. Using ClickSoftware's solutions to prioritize and optimize the schedule, while enabling real-time communications between workers and the back office, MAYKOR's offering ensures the right field specialist with the right equipment is dispatched to the most appropriate job in the most optimized way. Customers using the managed service will benefit by: increasing employee productivity, increasing the number of jobs completed per day, reducing repeat visits, and having a more streamlined workflow and better document management.

"The reputation of our business is based on the speed and efficiency of services provided," said Sergey Sulgin, President of MAYKOR. "Given our many years of successful experience in organizing and managing service activities across Russia, ClickSoftware has enabled us to provide the best service to help our customers optimize field service processes as much as possible, which ultimately improves the long-term operating efficiency through the use of analytics and reports."

The ClickSoftware powered mobile field engineer management solution will allow more requests, and more jobs to be fulfilled daily. In addition, mobile staff and managers will have access to information via mobile devices online or offline. This will optimize the workflow of employees who will be able to communicate easily with each other and with the back-office systems.

"The Russian market is evolving, and service experience is a competitive differentiator. ClickSoftware is able to create streamlined and more efficient operations in Russia and all over the globe, enabling businesses to successfully address the challenges of delivering great service while maintaining profitability," said Dr. Moshe BenBassat, Founder and CEO of ClickSoftware. "We are proud to work with MAYKOR to ensure that the proper systems and processes for their customers are in place to support mobile workers in the field and give managers the visibility needed to monitor essential performance and metrics."

Furthermore, MAYKOR uses the ClickSoftware to manage its own service engineers throughout Russia. The system provides transparency and optimization of the entire process from work scheduling to reflection of actual results of the work performance. Automatic scheduling capabilities allow dispatchers to obtain an optimal schedule of work taking into account such factors as the current location of the engineers and addresses of service provision, skills and qualifications required to perform the work, man-loading, etc. Along with the use of the mobile ClickSoftware solution by the engineers, it was possible not only to increase the utilization of engineers' working time, but also to achieve maximum efficiency and compliance with the SLA levels with customers when performing both scheduled and emergency operations.
