Field Service Software for Distributors

Accolent ERP's Cloud-based software delivers powerful field service software for Distributors, Building Materials and Industrial Equipment suppliers

Why should Distributors offer Field Services?

These are challenging economic times and distributors need to distinguish themselves from their competitors. One way to do this is to use field service software to provide value-added services to customers. These value-added services could include, for example, remote salespersons visiting the customer to take the customer orders or provide quotes. Other field services that are highly valued by customers can include delivery, equipment installation, maintenance, repair services and/or on-site consulting. Many studies have shown that customers have a strong preference for in-person service. As a result, field services - if offered and delivered successfully - can greatly increase customer satisfaction and retention.

What is Field Service Software?

Many distributors already provide some field services such as mobile sales, delivery, equipment installation, maintenance, and repair services to their customers. To successfully deliver these kinds of remote services requires being able to manage and communicate with field services personnel in real-time. That’s where field service software comes into play.  It allows distributors to send and receive data from their ERP systems via mobile apps to field service personnel using mobile devices.
