Introducing the Aquant Workforce Performance Index
Having published a series of features based on excerpts from their latest white paper, Aquant’s Edwin Pahk, has outlined the importance of field service companies measuring KPIs, now more than ever before. He has also identified for us the five KPI’s he believes are crucial for service leaders to measure. Here in this bonus addition to the mini-series, Pahk concludes with an overview of the Aquant Workforce Performance Index…
HELPING YOU CREATE AN ENTIRE TEAM OF SERVICE HEROES
Aquant accesses and analyzes hidden data and creates an accurate snapshot of the health and balance of your entire workforce.
The Workforce Performance Index factors in a wide range of KPIs, providing a holistic view of each team member in relation to peers. It’s easy to see, at a glance, who excels at solving complex problems while also understanding who needs additional support or training. What sets the Workforce Performance Index apart from traditional workforce rankings is that it’s based on an organization’s diverse set of service data including service tickets, technician notes, parts usage information, CRM data, and more.
That hidden data isn’t the only nugget of info that makes this measurement so effective, it’s also about Aquant’s domain expertise.We have decades of collective experience and understand how service organisations really work behind the scenes (we know about the many service shortcuts and all the data that’s supposed to be entered into a database, but never is). This led us to build a system that applies an organisation’s own knowledge and data in real world scenarios, to
- Create dynamic service intelligence that delivers robusts findings, recommendations, and best practices that’s personalized to each organization
- Apply AI-based continuous learning that learns the behaviors of service heroes and applies that knowledge to empower the entire workforce
HOW THE WORKFORCE PERFORMANCE INDEX LEVELS THE PLAYING FIELD
Before you can solve a problem, you need to understand the root cause — that’s the critical step required to resolve problems faster and foster performance improvements. Then, provide equal access to information so everyone has the right tools to succeed.
AI, enhanced by the feedback of experts, is key to capturing siloed tribal knowledge and making that knowledge accessible across your workforce. That’s how your hidden data helps empower less tenured employees with the wisdom of your service heroes. By making information easily accessible to everyone, from customer-facing service reps to field engineers, you’ll impart domain expertise on newer employees in a matter of weeks, helping them to understand problem-solving in a way that teaches them how to think like your service heroes.
ONCE YOU HAVE A BASELINE INDEX, WHAT’S NEXT?
