What is work order software?

Work order software is used by companies of all shapes and sizes to track, assign, and schedule tasks. Manage incoming customer orders and internal job requests that arise from inspections, audits, preventive maintenance, or breakdowns. Put simply, it's the overall process of making sure all the work gets done.
