Field Service Supervisors:
Being on the front line of many callout issues, Field Service Supervisors will have the opportunity to train on the new reports and resource management tools. This training and education will keep Field Service Supervisors up to speed with the application tools to help reduce the "morning shuffle."
As the critical initiators of callouts, Dispatchers will receive training on new ARCOS Callout and Scheduling Suite features and reports. The ARCOS Suite was initially developed with extensive input from dispatchers; this year's Conference attendees will have their opportunity to provide input into future product features and enhancements, many of which could simplify their callout tasks.
Dispatch Managers/Area Managers:
Dispatch Managers and Area Managers will learn about new, major features and discuss callout accountability and response rate trends with other Managers from peer utilities. This is the only venue in the country where Dispatch Managers and Area Managers can learn about callout best practices and how to address response rate issues they face.
Administrative professionals and Timekeepers will receive training in the use of the ARCOS Scheduler and reporting enhancements. Tips, Tricks, and Training received at the ARCOS Conference typically result in operational efficiencies that return hours to focus on other important work. Administrative personnel and Timekeepers can also provide input to the ARCOS staff regarding critical user-type concerns they may have, and suggest product enhancements they would like to see in ARCOS in the future.
As with any software application, ongoing training is critical. The ARCOS University at the ARCOS Conference provides extensive hands-on training. Many new, innovative features will be available to companies in 2015; this is the best opportunity for Training personnel to learn the new features.
IT Project Managers/Developers:
During the Conference, we get into great detail regarding integration with other applications. Workshops dedicated to integrating ARCOS with Work Management, Business Intelligence, and Resource Management Systems will show you what your peers are doing and enable you to share your plans with peers and ARCOS staff. Spend time with the ARCOS Engineers to discuss your specific needs, or meet with other peer utilities to learn about their integration success stories. We can even schedule private breakout meetings to discuss your specific integration project needs.
