MSI recently presented a webinar, Extend the Power of NetSuite with Field Service Management, to help NetSuite users understand the benefits of NetSuite-integrated mobile field service.
In the webinar, we covered how a NetSuite-connected field service app can:
- Speed your cash flow
- Optimize dispatching
- Eliminate paperwork in the field
Read on to learn how NetSuite-integrated mobile field service management can skyrocket your service business in 2020.
Importance of seamless NetSuite integration for field services
You may be asking yourself, is extending NetSuite into the field really that important? If your business goals include speedy billing and increased billable hours, then you should seriously consider adding NetSuite-connected field service management to your technology stack.
Before implementing NetSuite-connected mobile field service management, most field service organizations have a time-consuming, paper-based invoicing process. This manual process usually involves paper work orders changing hands multiple times and re-entering data into multiple systems. It’s not uncommon for these service companies to take up to 30 days to get an invoice out the door.
With Service Pro for NetSuite, technicians can create accurate work orders in the field from their mobile device. They no longer have papers flying around their trucks to record their work – it’s all captured within the Service Pro mobile app.
The paperless work orders automatically flow from the technician’s mobile app directly into NetSuite as soon as the work is completed. This means the back office team no longer needs to waste time re-entering work order data into NetSuite. All the work order data is ready in NetSuite for invoicing the same day services are provided.
More billable hours
It’s every service organization’s goal to get more billable hours out of each of their service technicians. However, without NetSuite-integrated field service management, technicians in the field spend a lot of time filling out paperwork. This limits the number of billable hours each technician can provide in a day.
In addition, these manual processes lack consistency, since it’s difficult to enforce field reporting when it’s on paper. And though handwriting work orders may work when you have only a few field technicians, paper processes do not scale well and can limit the company’s ability to meet customer expectations.
Using a field service mobile app, service businesses can completely eliminate paperwork while also increasing billable hours. There’s no need for manual data entry thanks to the real-time sync between the field and back office. And fast, easy field reporting ensures consistency from tech to tech.
Service Pro has a highly customizable form builder, so you can translate any paper form into a mandatory task within each work order. Since work orders aren’t on paper, they’re easily scalable to accommodate a high volume of service requests.
By extending NetSuite into the field, you can take on more customer requests without increasing your employee headcount.
