Asian telecom company chooses IFS 360 Scheduling

A leading East Asian telecom company has selected to optimize its field service delivery with 360 Scheduling from IFS, the global enterprise applications company. The agreement, valued at £1,175,000, involves delivery of IFS 360 Scheduling’s world leading real-time Dynamic Scheduling Engine (DSE).

Companies using IFS 360 Scheduling’s DSE report reductions in travel costs by 10-15 percent while increasing jobs completed per day by up to 40 percent.
