Episode 10: What Is Monetizing Field Service?

From Arc 4: Monetizing Field Service: Our Revenue-Centric Solution to Optimize Your Operations’ ROI

February 20, 2024 | 12 minutes

The first episode of arc 4 host Stephen Sugumar and co-host Peter McMullan address how to negate some of the cost center aspects of field service, including truck roll costs, as well as how to capitalize on more revenue opportunities in the field by monetizing field service and connecting your solutions.

Key takeaways
  • Field service is normally regarded as a cost center due to the amount of money (e.g., call centers, case management, truck roll, etc.) needed to manage customer needs offsite
  • Connecting contract/warranty, field service, and revenue management can help mitigate these costs and avoid capital spend
  • The ability to take advantage of onsite revenue opportunities not only increases revenue, it increases the customer experience
  • Mobile visibility and tools, as well as gamification, can help simplify and incentivize onsite sales
