The Service Tab on the MKMS Desktop provides six functions that will be used regularly in conjunction with the Service Tracking System.



Service Tab on the MKMS Desktop


Auto Service - Creates the Work Orders for each of the Recurring Services that are required to be performed during the selected period.



Auto Service dialog


Tech Schedule - Accesses a comprehensive Technician scheduling tool from which any Work Order which has not yet been completed, may be scheduled.



Technician Scheduling Form -  with Scheduled Work Orders


Tech Status - Allows any User (Scheduler, Service Manager, Central Station Manager, etc.) to maintain an up-to-the-minute view of the work status of each of the Technicians on duty, by allowing the appropriate User to make - in real time - updates to each Technician's work status (i.e., Idle, Arrived, Completed, Departed, In Route, Lunch, Unavailable).



Technician Status Form


Quick Work Order - Provides a Work Order entry Form to initiate a Service Request document for a Selected Subscriber.

Transfer Service History - Allows a User to transfer the Service History from one Subscriber to another

This is used when the current Subscriber vacates a home or business, and then a new Subscriber takes over that existing system - thereby preserving that system's maintenance history.

Time Sheet Form for maintaining each Technician's Time Sheet


Contacts - The Contacts Form provides a means to enter almost any type of contact information (name, job, phone, email, etc.) for almost any purpose (e.g., Work Order)
