Co-Founder-&-CEO-of-FarEye-Kushal-NahataTypically, you pick up pen and paper and start the arduous process of trying to schedule a very large and complex set of tasks across days, teams, and deadlines. With that approach, it’s not a matter of “if” things go wrong for you but it’s just “when” things start going wrong. Instead think of an automation and configurable business solution that handles all the people, process, tasks, and timelines of long cycle projects, a solution that enables you to effortlessly accept and schedule complex work orders and to add to that also provides business insights through its strong analytics allowing you to better strategize and ensuring optimization. 

After knowing & understanding the workforce management challenges, FarEye a Delhi based start- up thought of coming up with  solutions to the critical problems faced by a manager i.e. real time co-ordination between the business requests, customer requests and field employees. It provides a platform to intelligently schedule and dispatch jobs, monitor execution of tasks through a comprehensive overview of field force with job status and evalutaion of the performance through real -time updates and auto-generated reports; thereby impacting all the stakeholders involved – Manager, Field worker and of course the end customer. 

From the manager’s point of view he knows the productivity of his team, can address customer vagaries due to identification and traction of any field worker, identify problem areas through heat maps and other analytical reports, his real time reporting allows him to make smarter decisions and address concerns. From the field worker’s point of view FarEye reduces administrative work (manual data entry, cash reconciliation etc.) leading to increased productivity, increased first-attempts. The time that was used to generate these reports can now be used more productively. From the customer’s point of view FarEye includes last minute request, addresses ad-hoc requests, gives an option to the consumer to rate the experience at point of service, tracking the employees, reduces TAT and there is an increased responsiveness towards the customer.
