In today’s “everything-as-a-service’ world, Field Service assists organisations with on-site field technicians to maximise efficiency and minimise costs. A proactive and predictive service model is available with machine learning and advanced analytics to embrace the service economy.
Dynamics CRM Field Service is an add-on to the Dynamics CRM application. It allow incoming service requests to be recorded as work orders, either directly or from an escalated service desk issue that requires an on-site visit. Work orders can be scheduled manually or automatically to multiple field service representatives,
who can accept these work orders on their mobile devices. Information about the location, driving instructions, work to be performed, checklists and other documents is all available on a smartphone or tablet.
The system supports offline access where mobile connections are not available, and location services can be used to track work in real time. Actual service time and products can be added to the work order, with customer sign-off available on the mobile device when work is completed. Invoices can be generated easily and emailed to the customer directly.
