Driving profitability in field services

The potential gains in productivity and transparency with a transformative solution creates a connected experience for field service

We all know that field services have grown increasingly complex over the years. Disruptions to the supply chain, staffing shortages due to the pandemic, and a new emphasis on ESG are only some of the pressures that make managing field services so demanding. Companies also face technology disruptions, market shifts, new competitors, rising customer expectations, and execution challenges.

The biggest concern is that many traditional field services systems cannot measure and drive real value in their programs. But today’s new field services platforms provide a transformative solution to this challenge. Using digital technology enables companies to achieve connected and autonomous experiences by proactively handling needs in any area. By integrating physical and digital information with the Internet of Things (IoT), these unified, transparent platforms address the totality of your field service’s needs, data and insights, devices and assets, and people and processes.


Project management process

  • Work order management
  • Resource scheduling
  • Customer tracking
  • Repair history
  • Communication



  • Real time data
  • Repair time
  • Visualization


Asset management

  • Active monitoring
  • Preventative maintenance
  • IoT
  • Connected Field Service
  • Analyze

These platforms have the power to manage your field services with an unprecedented level of efficiency. They monitor assets continuously, so they can schedule maintenance before assets fail. They simultaneously feed a steady stream of information to the back, middle, and front office. They can run numerous “what if” scenarios, deploy and analyze resources, manage tickets, contact customers, and take complex, multi-part issues and graph them. Without this kind of digital assistance, companies may begin to see a decline in the value of their field assets.

A new era in field services

Today’s digital platforms enable quicker, more efficient decisions. They replace outdated internal, customer, and supplier interactions with an end-to-end integrated model that synchronizes supply chain activities and reduces disruptions. The potential gains in productivity, transparency and customer loyalty aren’t linear; they’re exponential. The new platforms also ease the transition from transaction-based relationships to long-term contracts with recurring revenue. They take you from fragmented, inefficient operating models to scalable solutions optimized for hybrid delivery with standardized processes.

Remote assistance for field workers enables the completion of tasks by leveraging other resources, while AI-optimized scheduling allows workers to spend more time on-site and less time traveling. Many repairs can be made remotely, machine to machine, with no human interaction through IoT. With multiple sensors gathering data at every point, the platform’s sophisticated analyses lead to insights that can drive increased customer loyalty, adjacent market development, and improvements in internal efficiency.

Across-the-board benefits


A digitally enabled platform reduces events during processing by monitoring the end-to-end process, enabling a seamless handover between disciplines, and reducing downtime. It simplifies operations—from order management to on-site deployment—through improved end-to-end integration across platforms and processes. You can direct efforts to your most profitable priorities; and track results with advanced data collection and analysis, greater automation, and intelligent forecasting.

Scheduling and maintenance

A digital platform automatically prioritizes and schedules work, optimizing routes to reduce travel time and increase productivity. And because the information is transmitted to and from the field in real-time, you can respond to field service incidents.

Inventory and logistics

Using demand sensing and predictive modeling in today’s field service solutions simplifies procurement from the field, reduce waiting time on parts, and provide superior tracking of equipment. The platform also offers warehouse and fleet management.

Environmental, Compliance, and Reporting (ESG)

As ESG continues to grow in importance, a digitally transformed field services platform will address the needs of all stakeholders by driving visibility into organizational performance, staying ahead of compliance requirements, and helping your mobile workforces collaborate for greater productivity.

Embracing the digital future

Across the manufacturing sector, observers have noticed a growing number of companies focus not on new products but on the installation and service of those they already have. In fact, some companies have found that installation and service enjoy higher margins than their other activities. As more companies seek to replicate that success, we expect the field services business to become more competitive and the emphasis on speed, accuracy, and transparency to grow. These increased pressures are likely to be compounded by what we expect will be growing ESG compliance and reporting requirements. That’s why a modern digital platform with the capability to scale and expand should be a minimum requirement for any field services operation, and certainly, for yours.
