Field Management consists of managing employees who operate away from a central location. Field Managers must schedule, monitor, and adhere to compliance regulations. Historically most field management jobs have employed technology such as GPS and mobile electronic tools to complete their tasks. Now field management software can automate many other aspects of your business to increase efficiency.
A large part of field management work requires scheduling and organizing your staff and the incoming jobs. Enter schedules, upcoming work projects or incoming work orders into your application and the software organizes the work for you. See previous projects, upcoming jobs and jobs in progress quickly with an easy to use format. The software helps you to finish work on schedule, project time frames, manage workflow, and keep everything within budget.
Field management work also requires clear communication. Customers need to know when field workers are on their way or working on a project. Your employees need to know what is required for each job, the job's location, and the expected time frame. And customers and employees need to contact you so that information passes clearly between parties. Challenges and concerns can be addressed with the help of software that alerts, monitors, and tracks.
Many field management jobs require that employees get from a central location to the job location. Field management software offers GPS, location and mapping features. Need to send an employee to several places in a new area, the software, through a mobile application, can give directions and organize the order of jobs in an efficient order. It can also store and analyze fuel costs, supply chain information, inventory counts, vehicle conditions, as well as route conditions to optimize your field service business.
