How and when to use automation to boost field test efficiency

Originally aired on October 30, 2018 and Now Available for On Demand Viewing.

A certificate of attendance will be offered.

Webcast Description:

Network field-testing is inefficient when technician productivity is impeded by manual administrative tasks, repeat jobs due to error and tedious results-sharing processes. This severely impacts the ability to quickly and efficiently deploy new infrastructures. So why not eliminate these barriers!

Automation makes it possible to avoid the typical problems encountered during a manual field-testing approach. With network field test-process automation, the consistency and accuracy of test data—both at collection and when input into field management systems—increases substantially. Automation allows the effective management of field-testing while providing complete real-time visibility over job performance.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The pitfalls, challenges and issues affecting today’s current manual field-testing practices
  • The advantages of pre-defined jobs and automated sync for project managers, field technicians and on-site leads 
  • How to improve the efficiency of auditing teams by using the latest technologies to automatically track, collect and validate tests
  • How to interactively view and analyze job progress easily to make the most informed business decisions possible
