IFS Field Service Management: A Game Changer?

Aug 30, 2018

Field service workers are unique assets to an organization. They are often the final contact point for a customer, and thus try to leave a lasting impression with what they do. Nowadays, customers demand dedicated personalized experiences. They also expect flawless first-time fix-rates, and a transparent experience from booking a visit to service delivery. Failing to reach these standards will result in a negative experience for your customer.  One negative service review can cause people to shift to their business to a competitor.

Field Service Management Software Connects The Dots 

Many surveys have shown that field service employees want to provide the best service possible to their clients. They consider it the best part of their job. The problematic parts of the job are time-consuming mundane data entry, and the lack of access to information on-site. They need real-time data at their disposal to best serve their clients and achieve customer success for your company.   

Your customers and employees need mobility, flexibility, transparency, and agility to synchronize in a meaningful way. Field Service Management (FSM) software brings together your company, field-workers, and customers to create a competitive differentiator.  

Thinking of replacing your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software to accommodate FSM? Think again! You might not have to. IFS FSM can be integrated with your existing ERP software like SAP or Microsoft
