Walker Gas Services began using Joblogic in 2006 to implement a new and improved system for managing the work cycle, from call logging and job scheduling through to invoicing. In 2009 the decision was made to invest in Joblogic Mobile to provide the office with a fully integrated and real-time interface between themselves and engineers in the field.

Benefits of Using Joblogic
Joblogic is user-friendly business software that enables the effective management of a mobile workforce. Walker Gas Services engineers use the PDAs to progress a job from start to finish.
- Captures time sheet details, job notes, photographs and signatures
- Has the ability to produce bespoke forms, such as gas safety certificates and crucially speeds up the invoicing process
- The real-time interface with the oce means trips to and from the oce are reduced
- Paperwork is eliminated through automation of the job cycle
Customer satisfaction has improved since the use of Joblogic. Work is completed more efficiently and Landlord’s Gas Safety Certificates can be emailed automatically as soon as a job is complete. It is a much easier system for housing associations and letting agencies who have significant volumes of these forms.
Walker Gas Services is also able to effectively manage its relationship with Homeserve (which outsources work to Walker Gas Services engineers) using Joblogic. Jobs can be sent electronically and tracked, which is important as they receive 300-400 each month. The company also uses TrakLogic which gives visibility over its motor fleet and helps them analyse fuel costs to improve efficiency.

On a real-time basis we can control and monitor our engineers. As a result, the business is running much more efficiently, saving on paperwork and unnecessary journeys to the office.
