The Approach

Hollywell delivers its reactive and planned maintenance to GTR using its help desk team based in St Albans and a team of field engineers throughout the region. The team at Hollywell use Asset-Pro which enables it to track, manage and report in real time.

The Challenges

The challenge comes with the sheer variety of scenarios that our help desk and team members deal with on a daily basis. Our role is to maintain the high customer experience that the client expects, in an efficient and professional manner. The team at Hollywell, through its experience, is able to plan for seasonal weather and, with its knowledge, preempt issues that previously might have been deemed unforeseeable.

The Delivery

Key to an efficient delivery of the contract is that Hollywell team members in the field are able to report in real time, using live reporting and images via Hollywell’s bespoke Asset-Pro system. Using GPS we are able to see which team members are best placed to react quickly to issues as they arise. Jobs are signed off on site and closed by the team member live in the field, creating certainty and maximising efficiencies to both the client and Hollywell.
