Anthony & Sylvan Pools Navigates Calm Waters with TSI Automation’s Routing and Scheduling Solutions
(Waterbury, CT) TSI Automation client and swimming pool giant Anthony & Sylvan Pools (A&S) has seen a substantial increase in operating efficiency, customer satisfaction, and cost savings by implementing TSI’s custom dispatch and job scheduling software known as Visual Control Room (VCR).
Before coming to the business systems gurus at TSI, this second largest U.S. company was swimming in a sea of paper records on 360,000 customers, thousands of employees, and an army of subcontractors. The logistics of handling both new construction projects and regular service contracts on a daily basis was becoming increasingly unmanageable. Anthony & Sylvan needed to find a partner to help them create an automated system that would handle pool service scheduling; project and asset management; Fleet dispatch and tracking; and the high volume customer data and business records that come with a large national corporation. They found the perfect ally when TSI Automation took on this ambitious endeavor.
“A&S Pools [now] automates their service/warranty and construction departments companywide using TSI Automations Visual Control Room.”, says David Nietch, Director of New Project Development for TSI. All Anthony & Sylvan technicians for service and warranty claims are now scheduled and routed by TSI. Pool and spa construction projects are tracked through every phase of development, from the moment equipment arrives on site to final sign off on the completed project. Visual Control Room with its GPS vehicle tracking and mapping capabilities delivers a clear visual display in real-time of all personnel and vehicles in operation.
Wireless work order management tools distribute job requirements to technicians via cell phone, another big step in making the ‘paper trail’ a thing of the past. All customer, employee, and subcontractor information is now stored in the VCR database and that ocean of paper is now a distant memory. The TSI team provided the tools and in-depth training to empower Anthony & Sylvan Pools in taking full advantage of their Visual Control Room system.
A&S has experienced company wide improvements in project efficiency, time and materials waste, cost savings, and customer satisfaction. Communication between departments has improved, customer information is a breeze to access, and whole forests of trees have been spared moving the company towards a Green operations focus that just makes good sense all around.
