TOA improves the relationship between companies and their customers by saving time for both. TOA's patented SaaS solution makes managing a mobile workforce easy and efficient. It combines a unique, real-time view of the field with the fastest scheduling optimization engine on the market today.

  • Saving Customer Time: TOA's solution predicts, with a high degree of accuracy, the arrival time for mobile employees completing in-home appointments. This allows service providers to narrow the "wait window" to only one hour for their customers. TOA's proactive communication system also offers automated, multi-channel appointment updates and confirmations to waiting customers, reducing in-bound calls and not-home arrivals.
  • Maximizing Service Provider Efficiency: TOA's statistical engine analyzes historical performance patterns along with each mobile employee's skill set, location and customer commitments. It then accurately predicts the employee drive time, arrival window and job duration for each appointment.

The end result is a more efficient mobile workforce, dramatic operational savings and higher customer satisfaction.
