Territory and Service Planning

What is Territory and Service Planning?

Territory and Service Planning include all activities which ensure the right service engineer visits the right customer at the right time.

Why optimize Territory and Service Planning?

Sales territories and service coverage sometimes need to be rebalanced as new customers are added and/or customer locations change. As customer demands evolve, synchronization of sales staff and territories is crucial. Companies need the ability to track and react to visits per week/month, given order pattern changes, seasonal patterns, and unpredictable disasters.
