What is Work Order Management?

Work Order Management is one of the best ways to maximize workflow efficiency by enabling the optimization of field resources, while streamlining field operations. Work Order Management is defined as the task of dispatching work orders to field personnel, project managers and crew foremen so that they can electronically collect all data in real time, thus being better equipped to take on the challenges that are in front of them.

It is important to remember when choosing a WOM software, that choosing the most complicated and high tech system isn’t always the best choice. You should avoid choosing a WOM system that is too complicated to understand and will involve an extensive learning curve and training period. While you may understand the technology perfectly, many of your field personnel may not be as tech savvy and could be a real problem for them to get adjusted. The best thing you can do is to find a WOM system that is easy to use, but still effective.
