9:10 AM Achieving Cost Savings of NZD 15.4 Million in 2.5 Years by Implementing a Cloud Based Scheduling System

Following the devastating earthquake in 2011, the Christchurch City Council along with transport networks, events team and water supply amongst other joined forces to rebuild the city. The amount of activity associated with rebuilding the city was unprecedented, and there was a need to enable the distributed workers across the different entities to keep tabs on potential clashes and opportunities to collaborate. The Forward Works View was developed as a result. Given the cost savings achieved it has now been rolled out to over 200 organisations and gone national being rolled out in Auckland and Wellington too.

  • Creating a roadmap to a seamless cloud based scheduling platform to grow efficiency
  • Overcoming integration challenges
  • Leveraging the data collected to improve planning for even greater time and cost savings

9:30 AM The Next Generation of Scheduling: Achieving Seamless Scheduling for Greater Field Efficiency

Cloud platforms, mobile devices, IoT and wearables are creating an increasingly connected field work force. These technologies can be implemented to drive a seamless scheduling system by tracking work orders and consolidating information on a common platform. This will not only create efficiencies by eliminating certain back end administrative processes but will also generate data that can support better planning. This session will discuss the potential of these technologies and their impact on existing systems.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding the pros and cons of Cloud platforms, IoT, wearable sand mobile devices for scheduling and issuing work orders
  • Investigating the impact on back office and administrative processes and efficiencies
  • Creating a roadmap to overcoming integration challenges
  • Leveraging the data collected to improve planning for even greater time and cost savings
