Benefits of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Field Service_
Dynamics 365 Field Service Features_
Benefit from efficient scheduling
An in-built smart routing system optimises travel times and visit goals. With route planning and smart assignments, agents are able to fit in more calls per week and in doing so save time and money: the scheduling reduces travel time, mileage and vehicle wear and tear.
Manage inventory, purchasing, returns and billing
Field Service comes with the ability to manage stocks, purchase order requests and fulfilment and process returns. Users can also generate invoices and automatically catalogue products and services delivered to customers.
Dynamics 365 Remote Assist
Field Sales staff on the road can work together no matter their location using Remote Assist on HoloLens, Android, or iOS devices. This is particularly useful for your junior staff who can easily setup video calls whilst on site with more experienced technicians should they need to. The useful in-built tools guide technicians to their customer location, mean they will be on time for meetings, deliver better customer service and work efficiently.
Improve First Time Fix Rates
With the ability to also use Dynamics 365 Guides within Field Service, Engineers and Field Service Staff can have access to all the mixed-reality tools they need to conduct maintenance effectively. This can be particularly helpful for newer who are learning on the job.
Utilise the Smart Routing to optimise travel time
The smart routing system optimises travel times and visit goals. Through this optimisation, it increases the number of services per agent per week saving fuel and vehicle maintenance costs.
Identify problems as soon as they arise
Internet of Things sensors send signals when problems may be arising and allow remote technicians to fix problems before the Customer even has to make a service call. If a customer does make a call, they will be met with consistent, transparent service.
Planning and dispatch management features_
Manage resources and equipment
Scheduling and Dispatch tools allow users to manage resources and the equipment needed for Field Service. The planning tools include visualising onsite appointments to assess requirements and skill-matching agents to tasks.
