Field Service Applications

RMS Omega can help you equip your service technicians in the field with mobile computing devices and software that allow them to input and access essential data in a central database back in the office or warehouse. Whether your employees service equipment or appliances, take readings for a utility company, conduct building inspections or service vending machines, you can increase:

  • Productivity
  • Customer satisfaction
  • Profitability

Most service calls are to solve problems, not to do preventative maintenance. That means your technicians are probably dealing with frustrated customers. You are well aware of the basic principles of good customer service, from same day response to completing the job on the first call and being able to discuss their particular equipment and situations. To make that happen, you need to provide your service people with the tools to do the job efficiently.

Your service person working in a customer’s business or home needs a mobile device loaded with an application that will let him:

  • Access info about warranties on the customer’s equipment
  • Scan barcodes to connect with diagnostic information back at the office
  • Access technical manuals and resource personnel
  • Scan meter readings
  • Access real time info about the availability and cost of parts
  • Estimate costs and time for maintenance or repair work

  • Voice communication and/or voice-to-text
