Fieldpoint has seen a boom recently in new integrations. Integrating your field service software with other systems is extremely critical to achieving a streamlined, end-to-end experience. So Fieldpoint continues to develop new and exciting integrations that assist our customers in their daily field service needs.
These new integrations join Fieldpoint’s already robust out-of-the-box collection of integrations, including CRM, ERP and accounting systems such as QuickBooks Online, NetSuite and Microsoft Dynamics GP, as well as sales software such as SalesForce. These systems are critical to the success of field service management, as information that populates your field service software will come directly from your CRM, ERP or accounting systems. That includes:
- Customer and vendor information
- Parts and inventory descriptions
- Resources, technicians and subcontractor information
And to expand your workforce, use our labor market integrations with WorkMarket to push work orders to potential subcontractors. With this integration, you get to stay inside the Fieldpoint field service software, while subcontractors can submit bids and quotes for the work and live in their portal. Work is still completed, invoices and vouchers generated, and you get to expand your workforce.
Let’s look at some of the new integrations developed by Fieldpoint.
Accept credit card payments with PaySimple
Fieldpoint recently introduced its new native mobile field service app, MobilePro. The mobile application can handle new customizations that will allow it to be more flexible for users. One of those new customizations in the integration with PaySimple in order to secure credit card payments for customers.
For those doing in-home, residential service work, or commercial work where they want to accept payments in the field, MobilePro and the PaySimple integration can now facilitate payments done on the job site. Upon completion of a work order, an invoice is generated, and a technician can now select a payment option that will automatically load PaySimple’s AppConnect application to take down credit card payments.
Now you can take payments directly after service is complete. Invoices are generated, a payment option is available, and customers can you use their credit cards for repairs. It’s a simple way to reduce the time for payment to come in for work completed and reduces processing invoices to send to the customer and then wait for the payment to be mailed in.
Scheduling with Outlook 365
For those using Outlook email for scheduling, Fieldpoint’s integration with Outlook 365 now makes it easier to assign technicians appointments for single jobs or recurring jobs. Whether in Fieldpoint’s field service software or in Outlook, you can now create appointments that will show up in the email calendar.
From within Outlook, a Fieldpoint screen will be available, similar to your software, to add appointment details, attach it to a work order, add parts, service codes and assign it to a technician. Input useful data in the email’s message field that will show up in the appointment. And produce a master appointment for all recurring work, such as for preventative maintenance or weekly janitorial cleaning as part of facility maintenance, to ensure no appointment is missed.
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and Navision
Fieldpoint has added two new ERP systems to its list of out-of-the-box integrations, as Fieldpoint now is fully integrated with Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central and Navision. The ERP systems all for the seamless transfer of information, such as customer, employee, vendor, and product information. It also handles all sales orders, purchase orders and invoicing for an end-to-end experience.
With this integration, pair your work orders in Fieldpoint with a sales order in Business Central, and have all your parts, time and expenses transfer from one to the other for accurate billing. Reduce time processing invoices with this level of automation. See complete inventory information, such as the quantity and location of parts and inventory and have requisition and purchasing controls to quickly buy the parts and equipment you need to get the job done.
