About 360 Scheduling
360 Scheduling has its roots in complex numerical analysis and has long been linked with Nottingham University. In the 1990s the company’s founders developed a sophisticated mapping and scheduling solution for use by the Emergency Services. The system helped the Emergency services make efficient use of their resources and helped them to meet legal SLAs measured in minutes. Allowing the Emergency services to wait in strategic locations rather than waiting at their stations.
The 360 system was founded in 2002 to take its world-leading scheduling expertise into a new software environment focusing on field service. The adoption of the most modern technology that embraces the Web revolution has meant that any company with a mobile workforce, whatever its size, can now benefit from 360’s best in class scheduling solutions. Since that time 360 has been working with field service organisations to help them schedule effectively and optimise their resources to meet an ever-widening spectrum of SLAs.
Today the team at 360 continues to include top mathematicians, scheduling experts and field service specialists based at Chilwell on the outskirts of Nottingham.
