How to Eliminate Technology Overload for Field Service Technicians

 
As field service organizations expand digital transformation efforts beyond work orders to address new service objectives, they increasingly run the risk of technology overload. This shows up in the form of data redundancies, disparate systems and administrative complexity.
 
Field service organizations can’t afford to impose this type of environment on skilled field technicians, who are already in short supply. Field techs, who rely on mobile apps to get their work done, have to navigate complex equipment, instructions and procedures. They do not need — or want — to navigate a multitude of apps that perpetuate a siloed approach to service, customer and asset management.
 
Join Bruce Breeden, field service executive with experience in all aspects of service operations, to learn how to eliminate technology overload and put an end to app hopping for your technicians. In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • the root causes of technology overload and how to prevent it
  • the quantitative and qualitative downside to overload
  • how to eliminate technology overload even if you think it’s too late

How to Eliminate Inconsistencies in Field Service Delivery

 

“Consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds,” as the saying goes. When it comes to field service delivery, however, consistency leads directly to success. When inconsistencies infiltrate field processes related to safety, CSAT, quality and productivity, the results are detrimental at best and ruinous at worst.

Join us to learn how to eliminate inconsistencies where it matters most — in the field at the point of service delivery. We’ll share critical insights and practical tips for ensuring field technicians, the tools they use and the SOPs they follow are optimized for removing risks related to doing work too many different ways.

In this session, you’ll learn from service management professionals about:

  • How to prevent inconsistencies at their source
  • Where to look first to fix service delivery issues
  • A holistic approach to adhering to your field processes and workflows
  • Design principles that keep technicians safe and optimally productive
