• The Four Pillars Of Field Service Engagement

    Field service engagement is both a mantra and a model; it’s the connective tissue between technology and customers that defines every service interaction. Today, every service organization can take for granted that customers are calling the shots. We’re at a point where individual customer experiences (CX) can make or break a business. Companies that take the time to understand their customers’ needs and incorporate technology to meet those needs stand a better chance of surviving in the long run.

  • Keeping Pace With Service Technology

    Technology fuels service-driven organizations and provides the edge they need to compete. But selecting the right solution, deploying it effectively, and measuring its results can all pose challenges. Service companies face vital decisions in all stages of technology procurement that can have profound results post-implementation.

Road warrior salespeople rely on smartphone apps to get the information they need to close a big deal.

  • Communication Is Elemental: Deskless Workforces Depend On It

    Today's workforce is mobile, collaborative, and dynamic. In fact, many workers don’t even have a company email address. Day to day, they are out in the field, working with customers, collaborating across teams, and tackling problems as efficiently as possible. These deskless workers, representing over 2.5 billion people worldwide, need a quick and easy way to communicate that doesn’t distract them from getting the job done.

  • Critical Power Guide For Fleet Mobility

    Maintaining the reliability of mobile computing systems in the field is one of the most challenging aspects of fleet professionals today. These devices must perform critical job functions and maintain data flow in tough operating conditions. While there are several keys to a total mobility solution including Software, Hardware, Connectivity, Docking & Mounting, and Professional Installation; having a reliable continuous power supply is the most critical factor to ensure productivity on the jobsite.
