Work Order Focus Group – Help Us Help You

Tuesday, May 8, 2018

The Center for Technology & Training (CTT) announces a call for participation in a focus group planned for 2018. As a part of the 2018 Roadsoft work plan, standardizing incongruent areas of Roadsoft is at the forefront of many conversations here at the CTT. One area in need of standardization is the work order process (including the work order fields, control, reports, general use cases, and application across all modules). Our internal discussions are generating many grand ideas for improvement; however, in our experience, the best ideas come from our customers.

Whether your agency is currently using Roadsoft work orders, considering using Roadsoft work orders, or using another system for work orders, please help us help you! Join us now for a focus group conversation about work orders in Roadsoft.

Participation in the Work Order Focus Group will consist of one 60 minute webinar discussion in early June. If you are interested in participating in the future design and development of Roadsoft, sign up online via the link below. Registration is open from now through Monday, May 28th.
