Pre-Dispatch Confirms/Cancels
Eliminate Dispatch Waste to Shorten Appointment Windows

SkyCreek’s custom, multi-channel (IVR, email, text) pre-dispatch customer confirmation solutions provide up-to-the-minute confirm/cancel statuses on upcoming customer appointments and allow service providers to increase the precision of dispatch functions and tighten appointment windows.

Why Care?

Large-scale field dispatch organizations are only as efficient as the accuracy of customer statuses they can attain prior to dispatch—in near perfect correlation. To eliminate additional waste, contain field service costs, and enhance brand reputation, service providers must improve their pre-dispatch customer contact processes.

Appointment reminders alone max out quickly in terms of their impact on no-show rates. Adding confirm, cancel, and transfer options often only get providers into the 60% dispatch accuracy range. To eliminate all “avoidable” wasted dispatches, service providers need more dynamic customer contact capabilities to:

  • Adjust contact strategies (channel, timing, sequence)
  • Tailor messages to current confirmation status and missed appointment history
  • Deliver more advanced appointment management policies

To stay competitive and increase cost efficiency, field service operators must also integrate their WFM and customer contact processes. This lets companies institute more cost-containing, advanced appointment management policies.

Key Points

  • Field service utilization correlates to the accuracy of customer confirmations attained prior to dispatch
  • One-sized fits all contact solutions quickly reach diminishing returns in their ability to contain customer no-shows
  • SkyCreek’s fully custom, professionally managed solutions move the needle for several large Fortune 500 MSOs
