Mobile technology lifts productivity

Published:  26 May, 2021

The AFI GROUP, a specialist in powered access equipment, has announced it is boosting the productivity of its nationwide team of engineers and drivers with workforce management technology from BigChange. The cloud-based, 5-in-1 solution enables AFI to build custom workflows underpinned by job-specific documentation, contributing to a reduction in engineer call-outs. Improved planning and visibility have already boosted driver productivity by 30% and AFI says it is looking forward to further benefits as it introduces BigChange to other parts of its business.
