How Does the eBS Field Service Mobile Application Benefit Your Service and Maintenance Business?
Updated: Oct 20
When equipment dealers and rental companies struggle to provide mobile service and maintenance to their customers, 9 times out of 10 it is for one of three reasons: either they are on an ineffective field service application that lacks functional automation and scalability, they are using an application not built specifically for their industry, or they are still utilizing an inefficient, dated paper-based system.
These scenarios give rise to various problems. Not only do customers get fed up, but the costs of repeated time and money waste add up quickly.
The eBS Field Service Mobile Application (FSMobile) is the perfect tool to resolve these problems by providing fast and easy back-to-back connectivity with technicians on-site and in the field.
What is FSMobile?
Field Service Mobile Application is a digital tool that enables the service manager or dispatch at an equipment dealership or rental company to maintain remote contact with the technician in the field. This essential tool works on various platforms such as Android, iOS, and Windows.
It is a 360° mobile application specifically designed for technicians on duty. Upon signing in, a technician can see and work on various stats and information at their fingertips, such as view the task assigned to them, complete a work order, add parts, labor, or miscellaneous charges, complete a customized checklist, have the customer electronically sign and email invoice and receipt to customer along with any selected promotional or marketing materials. Field Technicians will also love the timesaving “speak to” notes feature built into the application.
In addition, the technician will have access to the timeframe needed to complete the project, along with the other relevant information such as customer details, previous work orders, GPS connectivity and electronic delivery of certain documents from customer’s end. Technician time is also recorded.
FSMobile is a super effective tool that can benefit all types of equipment dealers such as heavy machinery, fork lift business, air compressor, crane, material handling, construction industries and other utility equipment dealers providing mobile service and maintenance calls to their customers.
