AM Broadband/Nexlink Selects Servicecentral's FieldService™ Workforce and Inventory Management Solution

ServiceCentral Suite Empowers AM Broadband/NexLink with Improved Workforce and Asset Management.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 5, 2005 -- ServiceCentral announces that AM Broadband/NexLink (AM), a cable service provider for Comcast, Charter and Time Warner, has deployed ServiceCentral’s workforce and inventory management product, ServiceManager™ 5.1, company-wide. AM has over fifteen points of presence, more than 100 engineers, and completes over 50,000 work orders each month. ServiceCentral’s comprehensive functionality provides AM with the enhanced tools they require to facilitate their dynamic pattern of growth.

By selecting ServiceCentral, AM is empowered with an efficient broadband-specific work order system which manages all facets of daily installs, disconnects and service activities. Through full life cycle bar-coded CPE tracking, AM has increased their inventory accuracy to nearly 100%. “One of the big reasons we have been able to attract and retain our customers is because of the inventory accuracy we are able to boast,” say Rich Sylvestre, a Senior Project Manager for AM.

More efficient procedures have enabled AM to significantly increase the overall productivity of their operations. This means a greater number of daily jobs completed with less people. One major advantage ServiceCentral provides is the ability to assign multiple pay schedules to task codes performed by engineers in the field. Automating this process, according to AM, requires two or three times fewer resources than it did using manual procedures. "We recently switched to Service Central's workforce management software after spending 3 years on a custom software package. We run over 100 technicians in multiple states in a very demanding telecom industry. As we continue to expand our footprint we are confident that we have chosen the right software partner in ServiceCentral." Scott Lochhead, President, AM Broadband LLC.

“ServiceCentral is uniquely positioned to meet AM’s requirements for an end-to-end workforce and inventory management solution. ServiceManager makes everyone’s job easier and provides faster and more accurate management of CPE inventory, task codes and the overall workforce. AM is realizing a tremendous reduction in inventory costs and improved customer service satisfaction through the use of ServiceCentral,” stated Steve Teel, Executive Vice President of ServiceCentral.
