The Field Service Software Selection Survival Guide
Today’s field service organizations are taking on increasing demands and balancing a number of objectives. Service operations are no longer seen as the cost center of an organization, but rather as the conduit to the customer.

Some of the key focus areas of today’s service organizations include becoming more customer-centric, transitioning from a reactive to a proactive service model, integrating M2M and IoT (Internet of Things) technologies to maximize uptime and first-time fix, and working to integrate service and sales to maximize cross-selling opportunities and — ultimately — the bottom line.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why is a SWOP-certified proof requested?
SWOP-certified proofs (not color lasers or PDFs) are used by our print company to monitor the colors of ads throughout the print process. The requirement is included with our digital specs, and for current SWOP specifications and additional information, go to www.swop.org. Using a SWOP-certified proof allows you to see how your file will print, and if there's any problem, you can have it corrected before submitting to us. You may choose to fax a copy and trust that the colors in the file will print to your satisfaction, but we must ask for your written acknowledgement regarding responsibility.
