Mobility Matters: Better Field Service Outcomes through IoT and Predictive Analytics

What’s the real cost of equipment downtime? Not only is it expensive for field service organizations (FSOs) to send a technician for diagnosis and repair (hopefully once), unplanned downtime means a productivity drop for business organizations – lost revenue and expenses that can accumulate quickly. So it’s no surprise that a recent study by Field Technologies found the top two strategic initiatives for FSOs are improving customer satisfaction and increasing efficiency.

This brief discusses how the combination of predictive analytics based on data gathered by IoT sensors and the use of mobile devices combine to reduce unnecessary scheduled maintenance while improving the overall service experience for both FSOs and the organizations they serve.

Why Mobile Tech Matters: Gaining a Competitive Edge for FSOs

Field service organizations (FSOs) rely on mobile technology solutions to stay connected and competitive, whether they provide consumer services for cable & telco, or commercial services maintaining factory machinery or repairing heavy equipment. Whatever their field of business, every FSO feels the impact of modernization trends including augmented reality, digital schematics libraries, diagnostics, advanced analytics, predictive maintenance, new FSO management tools, and more.

This paper looks at how FSOs can stay current and remain competitive by implementing mobile solutions that enable the latest technology and arm techs with tools that increase efficiency, provide better service, and increase customer satisfaction.
