The summer release has brought the workforce knowledge software, Resco Houston, tying together digital work instructions with AR remote collaboration.

Instant access to necessary know-how empowers workers to learn while on the job and carry out tasks autonomously. In case of a challenging task, it also allows the workforce to contact a professional that can guide them through the process using visual AR directions.

Resco Houston ensures efficient operations and helps to tackle the ever-growing skill gap across industries.

Expanding field service and Resco Inspections capabilities

The Summer Update delivers several new functionalities for asset maintenance. Together with Resco Inspections this new set of tools greatly expands the capabilities of Resco’s solutions, with a new focus on field service and maintenance management.

The scheduling and planning of maintenance jobs has been completely overhauled. For an even easier setup of preventive actions, maintenance plans can be automated based on date, recurrence, and frequency. To ensure technicians’ schedules will not get overbooked, Resco also added the ability to calculate the time workers need to spend on the road when moving between appointments.

notification badges in summer update

The brand-new notification badges on home screen items help companies to react quickly to the latest developments. They are complemented by automatically refreshing views – a configurable functionality that keeps information displayed in a view up to date and refreshes it regularly based on user’s preferences. Making even extensive incident management a breeze.

questionnaire wizard summer update

Last but not least, a new Questionnaire wizard was added to Resco Inspections, improving the user experience when creating new questionnaire templates from scratch. The wizard walks users through essential questionnaire settings (name, scoring, versioning, storage, etc.) and recommends default settings for each.

Smarter planning and integrations with third-party systems via OData for all Resco apps

The revamped visuals allow mobile users to navigate the map view more fluidly in the My Route/Route Plan sections of Resco apps.

And when Routes AI is enabled (formerly known as Smart Planning), the optimization algorithm will make sure, appointments will not be planned outside of opening hours available for any entity. Furthermore, users can also mark appointments as fixed and after the optimization is completed, fixed appointments will always stay in their original time slot.

The Summer Update 2021 also keeps expanding the integration possibilities of Resco solutions. The recently added OData service empowers system admins to connect with any enterprise system that supports the Open Data Protocol (OData v4).
