Field Service

Microsoft Dynamics 365

Field Service

Microsoft delivers advanced scheduling, resource optimization and mobile enablement capabilities that set organizations apart by keeping the customer at the center of the business. Field Service, including advanced analytics, machine learning and the Internet of Things’ capabilities, allows field service organizations to move from a costly break-fix model to a never-fail service model.

After a field service organization has made a service agreement with a customer, work that follows needs to be scheduled, documented, completed, and paid for. Let’s take a look at some of our highlights in this process.
