The goal of any organization that deals with agents and assets in the field? Control, flexibility, and the ability to offer complete transparency to both field service professionals and their customers. And yes, we know: not one challenge is the same. Industry specific needs are meant to be met accordingly.

We’ve got your backs!

We understand that every organization has their own challenges and opportunities. To give you an idea what might be applicable to your organization, we grouped the most typical challenges into four segments. You may recognize multiple aspects, so don’t be shy to check out more than one!
1. A high number of daily locations to consider, troubleshooting and scheduling efficiency, and a hybrid work force.
Chances are your service includes frequent home visits, or specific activities like installing cables and collecting debts. By nature, your service is generally similar on each and every location though you may make use of third-party technicians from subcontractors. If you aim for expansion, your challenge is to scale accordingly. Right now, the data you need is available, but plentiful and overwhelming, making it difficult for your planners to schedule and troubleshoot, without even considering exceptional situations.
Seamless communication between planners and field agents on the job, optimized routing and reduced travel time. You want to improve your subcontractor onboarding to continuously ensure the quality they deliver, so that planners can make their troubleshooting more efficient. With AI informed scheduling optimization, you can make better demand predictions.
2. Specialized processes and technologies, reactive requests, customer control, and an important focus on equipment outcome
If you work in, for example, insurance, dealerships, the automotive industry or OEM’s manufacturing, you might have noticed that it’s not always easy to understand and predict how many field agents you need at any given time. In the meantime, your customers want control: they want to be able to plan, change or cancel their appointments, and you want to live up to their expectations.
Instant follow-ups on ad hoc demands and automated appointment scheduling for customers. Expanding customer self-service ensures a pleasant and repeatable customer journey. Conversational AI, or chatbots and customer service solutions can help you triage and lead customers to the right expert or field agent faster, enabling them to initiate services themselves. Efficient resource planning is the way forward!
3. Deeply skilled and specialized technicians, knowledge accessibility throughout your field team and flawless communication between agents of varying experience levels.
The complexity of what you offer is generally high. You might work in real estate or facilities management, as a first responder, in oil and gas or as a mechanical contractor, or another industry. You offer very specialized services that require expertise. You need a flawless interaction between your experts and less experienced technicians, both on an interpersonal level as well as on a digital level.
Real-time visual support and transparent service reporting. With AR supported video collaboration and (Internet of Things) troubleshooting, you can bring less experienced technicians and experts quicker onsite, increasing efficiency. This means less repetitive tasks, reduced administration and more hands-on job time.
4. Commitment to equipment uptime, urgency and constant trust and loyalty towards customers.
Your services may not be easily transferable because they are highly specialized and your agents and technicians are hugely committed to the outcome. For, for example (but not limited to), utility management, or industries covering telecom, medical devices, or industrial OEM’s optimal insight in processes is not always guaranteed. Moreover, there is a high level of responsibility resting on the shoulders of your agents and technicians to ensure customer satisfaction.
You need real-time insight in your resources and skills, and direct availability of critical information, so that you can anticipate your (aging) assets, the transfer of niche skills and a spotless digitalization process. With Internet of Things-based predictive maintenance and outcome-based contracts, you can help your agents and technicians get better at limiting maintenance and you can arrange that the first steps can be done remotely. That way you can improve your time to repair and ensure a lower part usage.
