IFS has announced the immediate availability of IFS 360 Scheduling on Windows Azure as part of its strategy to leverage cloud computing, citing Windows Azure as a cost-efficient platform for innovative business solutions.
IFS 360 Scheduling empowers organizations to deliver on-site customer service excellence. Optimizing resource plans to minimize travel and maximize productive work time for hundreds, or even thousands, of technicians is a complex and compute-intensive task, and IFS 360 Scheduling’s ‘always optimizing’ approach means the schedule is constantly up-to-date no matter what is happening out in the field – for organizations with tight deadlines to meet, minutes matter.
Meeting tough customer expectations and providing consistent service demands a reliable and robust computing infrastructure. The speed of deployment on Windows Azure and on-demand scaling of resources echo the needs of these dynamic environments, for which resource scheduling is mission critical.
