Upgrading field service management

Field service management is a vital part of business operations. It equips employees with the resources needed to deliver exceptional customer experiences. Streamlining communication, making decisions, and predicting issues before they arise are just a few of the challenges facing field service management.

At ServiceNow, we understand how crucial it is for businesses to keep work flowing across various business assets and stakeholders. Here are three ways to help do that:

Define the root cause

When trying to run multiple tasks simultaneously, it can be difficult to identify the reasons for operational hiccups. The most valuable resources to understand and solve these issues are the people working on the front lines: customer service agents and field service technicians.

Closing the loop with your field and customer service teams is vital. Watch our Improving customer experience and product quality through root cause analysis webinar to discover the compounding benefits of getting to the root of a problem to improve your product and service quality.
