Customer And Contract Management

Contract management is the core of service management.  From managing the right contacts and customer information to processing, scheduling, and billing work orders, managing contracts.  An integrated ERP solution with field service management lets you easily generate, project, plan, and fine-tune appointments for staff and resources.

Scheduling And Planning

You’ll have access to scheduling tools that are both easy to use and customizable. Manage, report on, and reduce the number of appointments needed to meet and even exceed customer expectations.  Maintain constant visibility into the location, availability and skills sets of deployed field technicians, enabling fast and accurate scheduling decisions.  Simultaneous visibility of all important field service scheduling criteria, combined with web-based, drag and drop ease of use, will rapidly increase your scheduling productivity.  Get the right people to the right service or job every time.

Inventory Management

Maintenance issues require the right parts, in the right place, at the right time.  This is especially difficult for businesses with tools and repair parts spread out across multiple vehicles and warehouse locations.  Field maintenance organizations must balance supply and demand very carefully.  With a comprehensive Field Service enabled ERP, you can have control and keep track of locations and costs.  Since inventory and purchasing are integrated, shortages can trigger replenishment orders and parts can be sent to a specific location upon arrival, and the dispatcher can be alerted to schedule the service appointment for installation.

Mobile Productivity

Keep your team members in the office and the field connected through any Windows, Android or Apple device.  They will be able to access and update service information, appointments, and customer data from anywhere, at any time.  It can also use GPS services like Google Maps to assist with Route Planning.

Work Order Management

It is more important than ever that your service department more efficiently track field resources.  Manage the entire lifecycle of a work order, from the calls, quotes and order dispatching, to technician services, and invoicing.  Increase service department productivity, automate manual work order management tasks and perform field & office services in one integrated system.

Back-End System Integration

The major benefit of using a Field Service Management enabled ERP system, is that you never have to worry about your back-end systems like accounting and ERP integrating with your FSM system, they’re already integrated!  This eliminates delays or inaccuracies due to duplicate, manual entries across systems and keeps your entire business on the same page.  Every department will have access to the same, real-time data. Billing is fast and accurate, good audit trails and history are maintained with ‘one version of the truth’. The resultant unified database can be exploited for ongoing improvements and savings, reports and measurements including KPIs.
