Team Management Systems is celebrating the release of its AcoTruck mobile work order solution, the most revolutionary advancement in mobile dispatching since the paper work order! With AcoTruck, each field technician receives a “tablet” personal computer with a touch-sensitive screen, providing a simple and comfortable environment that resembles the familiar printed work order form, used by field techs for generations. The technician uses simple on-screen controls to enter work times, materials used, equipment serviced, and a description of work performed. AcoTruck also provides full support for Flat Rate billing, allowing the field tech to quickly prepare an accurate, professional invoice. Invoices can be printed in the field, using both full-sized printers and half-size portable printers worn on the technician’s belt. Best of all, AcoTruck is tightly integrated with Team Management Systems’ award-winning ACOWIN for Windows and ACOMARC for Unix service management software. Service calls can be sent out to the technicians with the click of a mouse or the press of a key, and technician work times are immediately relayed back to the main office system through the Internet, updating the dispatch board in real time. Completed invoices are relayed back to the main system, eliminating the need for manual data entry, dramatically improving office efficiency and accuracy. The office also receives a digital copy of the completed invoice, with the customer’s signature captured through the tablet, providing superb billing integrity. Released in August 2007 for Windows and January 2008 for UNIX, the AcoTruck system provides an extraordinary opportunity to bring field operations into the new millennium!
