minute information, and technology is the only way to deliver that.""
Sadaoui continued, ""By using our smart phone applications, field service providers receive orders instantaneously in the field, respond to them, navigate quickly to the property, and submit information back to us directly from the property. The end result is the delivery of superior, on-time performance for our clients.""
Field services contractors can view work orders, check company communications, submit updates and bids, take and upload photos, and complete and submit documents directly to REO Allegiance through mobile devices in the field. Contractors can also navigate and plan routes.
""Smartphone applications allow us to work most efficiently with our contractor network, which results in shortened service completion timelines,"" Sadaoui said. ""Smartphone use will continue to increase, so it makes sense for us to invest in the development of apps that make it easier for our contractors to succeed for our clients.""
According to the company, additional features, such as invoicing capabilities, are in the works. The apps are free, and REO Allegiance provides a start-up guide via ""its Web site"":http://www.reoallegiance.com/.
