What is Field Service Management?
Field services is fundamentally a people-oriented business consisting of field technicians, also known as field service engineers or field force, that perform services for your customers at their location. Field service management is the process of coordinating all of the operations conducted by a Field Service organization, such as scheduling service, dispatching technicians, tracking job status, invoicing, and billing.
