Challenges

The client faced difficulties in managing a combination of multiple systems supporting sales, installation and service. The manual scheduling and dispatch processes were tedious and time-consuming. Also, their technicians faced challenges in providing field service as they had to conduct several visits to complete a task. At the time of a scheduled or immediate service, they had to visit the site to check the issue, followed by ordering and picking up the required part from the service center. All this made it time-consuming and affected customer satisfaction.

Solutions

We worked closely with the client and defined a strategy that included the implementation of Salesforce Service Cloud with Field Service Lightning (FSL). FSL streamlined sales, installation and service processes for their entire product line. We developed a solution for our client that provided them with capabilities and efficiencies that helped them overcome the challenges that they earlier faced and helped them to improve business processes, equipment maintenance and customer satisfaction.

With the Salesforce FSL solution in place, when a customer calls the service center, an agent tries to solve the issue online. If the resolution requires a site visit, the agent creates a service appointment for the technician’s visit, who then visits the site at the scheduled time and gets the job done.

Solution highlights:

  • Enables field service workers to deliver faster service with improved efficiency
