Here we take a look at the Service Planner role at Ash Air, and the unique function of our team performing the involved tasks, as well a
chat to Julie and Kelly: a couple of amazing Service Planners within the team!
So, what does a Service Planner do?
We have Service Planners in all our main service locations/branches throughout the country. Our team of Planners and Coordinators are the
first in line contact for our customers in need for maintenance and repair. They are responsible for planning the day to day schedules of
our Field Service Engineers, and to organise crucial technical support for our customers.
Next level customer service: How do our Planners make a difference and how do they help your business?
Being the main point of contact for our service customers, they are responsible for helping you, negotiating and agreeing the
interventions terms, and ensuring we honour our service agreements and cover any of our customers requirements! We let you know when your
compressor is ready for its servicing and allowing you to easily work in keeping your compressed air system in optimal condition, around
the clock, 24/7.
Our team provide first line technical support to our customers, managing operational software, generating, and analysing reports related
to our FSE utilisation and work process! We're proud of our dedication to creating a quality service experience from start to finish,
and to help our customers solve their problems. This is why we are considered a business partner by our customers!
What our Service Planners have to say
“When I first took the role of Customer Services Administrator 8 years ago, it was not normal to have a female in this role.
Through my hard work, improving business processes and working smarter, I grew the role and was promoted to Service Planner. Last year
my role grew to include Service Coordinator for Nelson/Marlborough which has one technician. This has put me back on a steeper end of the
learning curve. It has helped that my manager allows me to have the freedom to branch out in my role
.I enjoy the empowerment and freedom to make decisions that better my work life at Ash Air and therefore benefits the team.
]What motivates me? Being able to grow and be flexible in the role. I enjoy interacting with customers from varying types of businesses
as they each have different needs. I like to deliver a positive experience to our customers by being helpful, reliable and easy
to deal with.”
“The thing that I enjoy about this role is that I get to build relationships with the customers I book work with - even though I have
never met them in person! You get to know them well and its rewarding.
Within this role there is a lot to learn; it can be challenging at times because there are some things that take a bit longer to
process and learn. For example, what parts to order for a compressor service can be a different from others. And then there are compressors
that you have never heard of before. This where you can collaborate and utilise the knowledge of the people I work with! Our Service
Technicians are full of knowledge, and they help me out a lot! They are the best. This role also relies a lot on being organized and I like
Many things contribute to my motivation: staying positive and seeing the brighter side of life, even when things are bad and not going
so well. My family and friends is what keeps me going as well - they keep me humble and true to myself!”
