About The Company

Systems + Devices Addressed
The company had been using legacy software to manage their field service operations. The legacy software includes a limited management console and an outdated mobile app, both with limited integration with the accounting software.
Lack of intelligent scheduling features that would incorporate the technician’s travel time, time off schedule, and other important features to manage field service delivery.
Limited mobile app functionality to capture photos, videos, and guide technicians with step-by-step directions in the field, plus get help when needed.
Cumbersome report development and delivery engine requiring manual time to deliver field service visit reports to end customers.
No use of case management, routing, or other service features to streamline and process requests.
