Scheduling, Dispatching and Call Center

Scheduling the right people at the right time with the right skills to perform work efficiently is handled quickly with Acumatica Field Service Management. Quickly capture service needs and access customer information, product history, and resources required to shorten time between call receipt and job assignment. Create daily or weekly schedules automatically or using drag-and drop tools on the graphical dispatch board utilizing colors to identify the status of each service order.

Equipment Management

Records the complete history of the equipment or machine installed at each customer’s site and tracks repair parts in stock. With Acumatica’s integration of sales and service stores the equipment records through quoting, order, delivery, installation, and then service work in the field. It also includes manufacturer, model, configuration, and schedule preventive maintenance orders. Customer equipment can be associated to recurring schedules and contracts in Acumatica Customer Management (sold as an optional application).

Mobile Service Management

Keep your staff members connected through any device with a browser or with the native mobile Android and Apple iOS (iPad) app. They will be able to access service information and customer data from anywhere at any time, as well as log service and travel time with different billing rates. Being a full web ERP, Acumatica can run on the entire spectrum of mobile devices, whether in the office or the field, for maximum efficiency and continuity of service.

Track Projects and Costs

Field Service Management is not just for small projects. When the installations are large (tasks, people, or equipment), all the costs (time, materials, and expense) are tracked in Acumatica Project Accounting (sold as an optional application) to the phases of the project. Compare actual project costs with original and revised budgets in real-time. Manage billing with fixed-price, cost-plus, or capped project costs. Bill service orders and appointments through the project instead of Service Management.

Team Approach to Sales and Service

Customer Management (CRM) is part of Acumatica, not a loosely integrated module. From marketing, quoting, building, and installing, and then in field services, the customer information is visible throughout the organization providing a 360-degree view of all customer interactions. When selling equipment, the installation appointment can be scheduled while the user is in order entry. (Customer Management and Field Service are sold as optional applications.)

Service Contract Management

Recurring service contracts are a significant source of revenue. Visibility on renewal dates for each contract helps preserve the revenue. Dashboards can alert the service team of expiring contracts. Your team can create and manage multiple service schedules per customer and fine-tune appointments using the Schedule Calendar Board for staff and resources.

Warranty Management

Normally, Warranty Management is a time consuming, but required, activity. With Acumatica, this task is integrated with the other applications. Establish warranty offers for your customers, specifying which parts are under warranty to avoid confusion, mischarges, and objections. Multidimensional contracts (different warranty periods for different components of the system) help to track warranties from sales to repair in the field, specifying what is covered and what is not. This helps to ensure billing accuracy, improving customer satisfaction.

Inventory Management

In field services, tools and repair parts are typically spread across multiple vehicles and warehouse locations. With Acumatica, you can get control and keep track of the locations and costs. Since inventory and purchasing are integrated, shortages can trigger replenishment orders. Inventory can be sent to a specific location and when the parts arrive, the dispatcher is alerted to schedule the service appointment for installation.

Emergency Service Calls

Use the visual tools to add unplanned service calls. Find out how changes to planned routes will affect the team with the least amount of impact to the planned schedule. Have the new service order sent to the technician’s mobile device.
