Tornado LTD is an Israel based private company that was founded in 1988. The company provides air-conditioning solutions to customers all over the country.
Due to the quality and the resistance of the air conditioners over time, the brand “Tornado” became the favorite brand among customers and professional technicians in the industry and won their recommendations and support.
The company owns one of the most professional and large service workforces in the country.
The workforce consists of tens of technicians, call center representatives and well-known industry experts.
The company is growing rapidly and planning the workforce schedule efficiently became a challenge. The number of calls to the call-center from customers asking where the technician is has increased, more delays from the
time-windows has accrued and the technicians became unsatisfied from their schedule.
Tornado had another significant challenge. Their workforce consists of sub-contractors and not from the company’s employees. This alone creates overload when need to schedule and dispatch tens of technician where each has a different depot, a different set of skills, different work hours and different area preferences.
Tornado looked for a solution that answers their needs in terms of the complex planning and would help them touch their goal in increasing customer satisfaction and eliminate delays and provide narrower time-windows.
