Episode 12: Revenue-Focused Trends in Field Service

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

March 5, 2024 | 10 minutes

Host Stephen Sugumar and co-host Peter McMullan return in this episode to wrap up their discussion of monetizing field service with revenue solutions with industry trends. Learn more about the push to empower frontline workers with the right tools and information, an increased focus on expanding an organization’s after-market parts and services network, and AI’s role in achieving proactive operations.

Key takeaways
  • Increasing a technician’s ability to organically capitalize on onsite opportunities via tools and information (e.g., deliver a quote when a customer asks about a service, change an account phone number, provide preventative maintenance, etc.) is a trend that’s being used to increase revenue and improve the customer experience
  • Having the ability to manage and expand your after-market parts and services vendor network helps increase revenue and gives customers more flexibility
  • Service contracts and AI are both being used to shift away from reactive operations towards proactive operations
  • Advancement in data process, reporting, and visualization tools are helping field service organizations understand who to target and what service to offer to increase revenue
