Empowers companies to deliver satisfactory field services 

Do you know what field service is and why it is important? I am going to discuss it in detail. Field service applies to any service performed and delivered out in the field. It includes numerous tasks, activities, and processes, such as dispatching workers, to customer locations for installation, repairing, or equipment maintenance.  Furthermore, it includes parts of inventory management, job scheduling, ticket management, helpdesk management, client management, work order management, and more. To put it another way, it involves the management of an organization's resources employed for servicing client's equipment, systems, or machines and only involved in the property of clients, rather than on organizations' property. Moreover, the field service industry has so many responsibilities, including positioning and tracking vehicles, handling & controlling field worker activity, scheduling and dispatching work, and more. 



Industries involved in Field Services

As we all know, handling everything without having the right business management software in place cannot take care of every aspect of FSM efficiently. An FSM software integrates every field service process with inventory, billing, accounting, and other back-office systems. There are so many companies involved in the field service and need a powerful and intelligent FSM system. Companies like healthcare (mobile nurses), gas utilities (to investigate and repair suspicious leaks), telecommunications & cable industry (installation of cable or run phone lines), and heavy engineering, mining, construction, and manufacturing (for preventative maintenance and repair). In addition, the HVAC industry also needs an FSM system, it has to manage its technicians who are working on fields to install, repair, and maintain Heat and Air Conditioning equipment to investigate residential, commercial, and industrial environments.
