Episode 11: Synergize Field Service Management with Revenue Solutions

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

February 27, 2024 | 12 minutes

This episode features co-host Peter McMullan and guest Erik Nelson (Salesforce Manufacturing Solutions Lead at Diabsolut), as they discuss how exactly tying together data and systems helps across various aspects of a field service organization — including customers, the back-office, and the field.

Key takeaways
  • Revenue leakage is often tied to difficulty accessing complete and accurate information from task to task and team to team — which is directly related to fragmented systems and processes
  • There are 3 recommended steps to fix this: consolidate main systems and data onto a unified platform, address inefficiencies with automation and data visibility, and integrate back-end systems to ensure upfront data access is accurate and complete
  • It’s necessary to connect systems, as well as sales and service, to empower technicians to make onsite sales
  • Industry trends include using connected systems and AI to go from reactive to proactive operations, which helps avoid downtime, negate costs, and empower customers
