At Fieldpoint we are focused on helping our customers achieve optimum results from their field service technology — results that matter and make a positive business impact. It is not just about our product; it’s about what our customers can gain, whether it’s more productive equipment, highly efficient technicians, or a great customer experience.

The success of your business depends on the strength of your interactions with your customers. Everyone connected to the service delivery of your organization needs to engage in, collaborate on, and have visibility into the business process.

Asset-intensive businesses demand around the clock productivity. Leading manufacturing and equipment businesses invest in Fieldpoint to prevent equipment downtime and maximize productivity with mobile technology and connected devices. Manufacturers and dealers of heavy equipment are finding that the performance of their service and maintenance programs is not only important but can also be a major driver of revenue and profits. Sales margins are no longer the major revenue drivers, as they have gone down based on the competition levels in the industry. There is now a huge focus on recurring revenue via service level agreements and contracts to be the driver of revenue, and enterprises need to make sure they are maintaining their service levels. Integrated service management, mobile field service and inspection software from Fieldpoint can be the key to driving heavy equipment service performance improvements.

INDUSTRIAL EQUIPMENT INDUSTRY

The industrial equipment repair and maintenance industry has seen considerable growth over the last decade and will see a steady climb in years to come. In 2009, the industry was at its lowest point, worth just $23.91 billion, however, it has rebounded and is worth over $35.88 billion today. Customers today are demanding more from their service providers, as the growing interest in break/fix repairs, preventative maintenance contracts and service level agreements has driven the industry towards responsive field service software.
Meanwhile, those conducting industrial equipment maintenance need greater visibility into service history on pieces of equipment, along with the ability to track usage and warranty on parts and equipment. They also require a work order management system that is automated for different required service agreements. And by extending this visibility into the field, technicians are needing mobile devices that empower them on the job site, giving them real-time visibility into the history, inventory and work order system that will make their job easier.

 “That whole workflow process makes sure things don’t fall through the cracks like they did historically. The technician on the mobile field service app writes in one of the note fields what needs to be quoted and they check off a box labeled ‘Quote Requested’, which in turn, starts this whole workflow process.”
– Brian Donahoe, Information Technology Manager with Kraft Power

HOW FIELDPOINT HELPS

No matter if it’s an excavator, front loader or any kind of heavy machinery, tracking the equipment’s history can help be a deterrent of unwanted downtimes. As equipment ages or is used in the field, the likelihood of a repair or regular service becomes apparent. The main cause of unscheduled downtime is aging equipment, followed by operator error and lack of time to perform maintenance. Over the course of a machines lifecycle, repairs and maintenance are conducted, either on an emergency basis or as part of a recurring preventative maintenance agreement.

Tracking those repairs can be the difference in faster first-time fix rates in future repairs or give technicians valuable insight into past problems with equipment. This is providing technicians have access to the historic work orders to review. But having those work orders stored in filing cabinets or on spreadsheets without all available information doesn’t make them accessible to technician in the field about to head onto a job site to conduct maintenance. It also makes it difficult to pin-point problems to each specific piece of equipment, especially when work orders encompass multiple tasks or equipment on a single work order.
Fieldpoint gives instant visibility into the history of all equipment and makes it accessible from the field through the field service mobile app. Through the work order management system, all repairs performed are tracked and kept for historical records, down to each specific piece of equipment. Technicians can track the history of individual pieces of equipment which can assist in future repairs, while also preventing possible revenue leakage through unexpected downtimes, help forecast equipment or parts replacements, or offer opportunities to upsell new equipment.

With field service software, track equipment usage for hours in service, or distance travelled, which coincides with maintenance agreements. Through greater visibility into equipment and assets, protect your customers from unwanted and potentially costly downtimes, manage equipment rentals and track the location of all your asset in the field for when potential substitutions need to occur, all from within a single portal.

Increase Revenue and Drive Profits with Maintenance Contracts

Maintenance contracts are the main source of revenue for most industrial equipment service organizations. Of the types of maintenance plans available, the most popular is the preventive maintenance plan, where recurring work is done to service machinery to keep them working at peak efficiency, eliminating as many untimely downtimes as possible. These preventive plans can be structured based on intervals of time, such as monthly or quarterly, seasonal or the usage of the equipment in the field, such as hours in service.
Some customers have reactive maintenance plans and wait for equipment to fail before having any maintenance work completed, while predictive maintenance plans, structured around Internet of Things (IoT) sensor technology is becoming the future of field service. Whichever plan a customer selects, ensuring you don’t miss a service call is of upmost importance, especially consider the plan is to avoid unnecessary downtimes.

Your Technician Productivity Has Never Been Better Now That Your Field Service is Mobile

For the industrial equipment service industry, mobility is the key to giving real-time visibility to your technicians, while offering that same visibility to your head office into the progress of a work order. For quicker processing of work orders, which leads to faster invoicing times, mobile field service apps are giving technicians in the field the ability to do their job and submit work orders without the time-consuming manual paper work to complete. Mobility allows for technicians to see the service history of specific equipment by scanning a barcode that will bring up all the maintenance completed on equipment and parts. This ensures that the information inputted by the technician during the service call also gets logged directly to the specific piece of equipment with any chance of errors or missed information

When completing calibrations of machinery, compliance reports or for recurring maintenance inspections, technicians can follow pre-designed checklists to ensure each task is completed and not part of the report is missed. Checklists can be attached to the work order to help streamline the tasks needed to be completed and keep standards high and become part of the service history for equipment that can be accessible for any future inquiries.

“The Fieldpoint app makes it easy to support the technicians It’s easier to give your customers a quick overview of what has been done to their equipment. They can see their cost per hour if they need to see things like that. It just makes for a more seamless, easier path to provide information to people. It eliminates the redundancy of someone writing it down on a piece of paper and then having to put it into the system later.”
– John Morfit, Technical Support Manager with Design, Storage and Handling
