Productivity and Service


Applied Acumen has worked with some of the most complex and demanding field service operations in existence today, covering both highly complex multi-drop logistics (more variables than can be handled by the market leading routing software!), and also highly sensitive and technical servicing (e.g. medical equipment installation in the home).

Field Service performance is not all about software, or keeping track of your employees through mobile technology. For Applied Acumen these are merely the starting points to managing field service operations effectively.

We understand the need to protect the customer relationship, yet achieve improved productivity and lower cost whilst maintaining safe working and employee wellbeing.

Operational Behaviours

How do you get every person taking responsibility?

RFT, On Time, In Full

Quality, cost and service are often seen as a 3 way trade off. Getting a good night’s rest can become almost impossible by the middle of the second trimester. Long, large maternity pillows can help take some of the pressure off of the body by supporting a growing belly, providing relief to both the back as well as the core and abdomen. Maternity pillows also allow for better alignment of the knees and hips, which reduces pressure on the spine and upper body. In other words, they can help an expectant mom get comfortable enough to actually sleep for a few hours now and then. Even after pregnancy, these pillows can be used for postpartum respite and some even work for nursing We’ll show you why this is wrong, and a costly misconception
