Fieldpoint's Out of Box Integration with NetSuite

Posted by Fieldpoint Service Applications on Sep 13, 2017 10:13:24 AM

If you’re going to implement field service software, getting one that is already integrated with your ERP and CRM systems is the optimal option. Harmony between two sets of software will not only increase the communication lines between the two programs but also save you valuable time on having to re-enter data that has already been put into one system. Think of it just like you would any part of your business. Your service department needs to be working with your accounting department for invoicing and billing, your inventory warehouses for stock levels, and sales for new products or services. If the lines of communication in person-to-person conversations are broken, it can cost your business dearly. It’s the same with your field service and accounting software.

The Technician, Field Service Software And Success

Posted by Fieldpoint Service Applications on Aug 31, 2017 10:36:04 AM

Field service software can do a lot of things, but one thing it can’t replace is your technician’s interaction with customers. Through the Internet of Things technology, preventative maintenance schedules, and past repair history, technician’s can learn a lot about an upcoming job before they get to the job site. But often first-hand information from the customer is what really will decide what needs to be addressed. With your technicians, often being the face of the organization, they are who customers see every day, dealing with growing escalations and concerns, and are walking into a customer’s space not fully knowing the situation at hand. So, while no field service application can speak to a customer directly, it can be a helpful tool to your technicians to bring a service call to a quick resolution, while keeping your customers satisfied.
