Guide and steer your workforce with Fieldcode: top 3 areas of improvement

In the age of digital information, it can be difficult to make sense of the abundance of data readily available. With so much information to sift through, it can be challenging to stay organized and ensure that the most important and relevant information is reaching the people that need it. Without a system to help streamline the process, it can be easy to get caught in data overload and have important information slip through the cracks. 

Information overload can cause a serious drain on your team’s time and inefficient processes, which slow down productivity. To avoid these obstacles, it is essential to have a system with automated guided workflows that can help you stay organized and efficient.

Streamline your operations with our guided workflows

Fieldcode provides a solution with tailored workflows that can help you keep your field service teams informed, streamline processes and ensure everyone is on the same page.

Gone are the days of manual management. With our solution, your field service teams can run like a well-oiled production line. Our software guides your technicians through each step of the process, providing relevant information when needed. You can even customize the workflows for specific roles, ensuring all necessary information is gathered at the right time and avoiding double labor efforts or errors.

This isn’t a tutorial you can bypass or your ordinary checklist of things that need to get done. Our unique approach goes beyond just providing information and ensures that each task is completed in the right order before moving on to the next. Our system prompts technicians to act, and once they validate their work, they'll receive the next prompt. This eliminates double labor efforts, saves time on site, and increases revenue by allowing technicians to complete more work orders efficiently. For instance, when working with spare parts, our system prompts technicians to enter the old and new serial numbers of parts before moving on to installation, thus avoiding unnecessary disassembly or double efforts.

Reporting is done throughout the process, and relevant information is gathered at the time needed. Reporting includes compliance measures like confirming health and safety equipment is worn and documenting evidence, which helps with invoicing and warranty management. Staff can stay focused on their task without being sidetracked by the technology or overwhelmed by the process.

With Fieldcode, your delivery service is consistent in quality and highly efficient. The system makes it easy to manage processes and roll out workflow changes so that everyone follows the same process. The uniformity of the process and real-time reporting streamline onboarding and training for technicians, allowing them to quickly adapt to working with multiple customers and repairing different devices. Technicians never have to worry about missing a step or making errors. Tasks are clear and resolutions are quick. High-volume and complex interventions are completed effectively, allowing for maximum efficiency and productivity.

Say goodbye to the stress of managing processes manually and hello to a streamlined, successful business. Reap the following benefits and navigate your service teams to success.

Top 3 areas of operational improvement and their benefits for your field service management

Delivery of service

  • Efficiency: Technicians are given all the right information at the right time to complete work effectively, reducing the time and effort required to complete work.
  • Consistency: By following a defined process, technicians ensure that work and validation procedures are performed consistently and to a high standard, reducing the risk of errors and omissions and improving customer satisfaction.
  • Improved quality: By following tasks in a predefined order, technicians can identify potential issues more quickly and minimize downtime.
  • Better communication: Technicians knowing exactly where they are in the process means communication is improved between technicians and other team members, as well as between technicians and customers, ensuring that everyone is on the same page.

Reporting and record keeping

  • Improved record-keeping: Technicians maintain precise records of validation activities, such as testing and inspections, which reduces the risk of errors and inconsistencies. Billing and warranty checks are simplified when proof of validation is available. For example, a technician takes and uploads a picture to verify that the item is free from scratches and functioning correctly after repair.
  • Standardization: Following a defined process ensures that data is collected and recorded consistently, making it easier to compare and analyze data across different jobs and technicians.
  • Data accuracy: Data is gathered in a consistent and timely manner, reducing the risk of missing important information and improving data quality.
  • Streamlined reporting: Reporting is simplified and done throughout the process, making it easier for technicians to compile and submit reports and for managers to review and analyze data.
  • Enhanced performance metrics: Standardized data collection and reporting processes can provide more accurate performance metrics, enabling managers to identify areas for improvement and make data-driven decisions.

Industry regulations

  • Consistent compliance: By following a defined process, technicians ensure that all industry and safety procedures are performed consistently, reducing the risk of accidents, injuries, and non-compliance.
  • Improved risk management: Guided workflows can help technicians identify potential safety hazards or regulatory risks and take appropriate action, reducing the risk of accidents, injuries, and deviations from best practices.
  • Enhanced training: Defined workflows make it easier for new technicians to learn the job and understand their responsibilities, including safety procedures and industry regulations, improving training and onboarding.
  • Improved record-keeping: Technicians keep accurate records of industry and safety-related activities, such as inspections and safety equipment maintenance, and regulatory compliance.
