GLDS(October 28, 2009-Carlsbad, CA and Monument, CO)
Great Lakes Data Systems (GLDS) and PeakView Solutions have deepened their relationship and are pleased to announce the development of a joint interface. This effort provides WinCable customers with fully-integrated, real-time access to PeakView’s workforce management (WFM) system through GLDS’ new WinForce product which provides PeakView with data to needed to drive workforce efficiencies. Both companies will be meeting with interested clients at the SCTE Tech Expo in Denver, October 27-30, 2009.

 

“This is the next logical next step in our year-old relationship,” says Garrick Russell, GLDS VP of Operations. “While PeakView has been working with snippets of WinCable billing system data, this new interface opens the door to a real-time collaboration that empowers technicians and builds efficiency. PeakView has been a good development partner as we worked through this integration and we’re looking forward to bringing robust workforce management tools to our customers.

 

“We are thrilled to be working with the GLDS team on the final steps of integration,” said Manny Miera, PeakView’s co-founder and CEO. “PeakView has already developed the first WFM application to work with the WinCable billing platform, and it is currently being implemented in a major MSO. With the addition of this GLDS interface, our WFM application will gain new functionality and benefits.

"Studies show that an integrated WFM tool for mobile workforce management can increase productivity for a field technician from 30-90 minutes per day, primarily by eliminating calls to dispatch. This allows techs to accomplish more work daily, spend more time with customers, and reduce overtime. WinForce from GLDS will provide a scalable way of exchanging the data needed to provide these kinds of efficiencies to all GLDS customers.
