How Field Service Apps Give You Better Visibility

Posted by Anna Cridland

There can be a lot of stress in running your own business, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Stress can come from mismanagement and lack of information. With a field service mobile app, stop guessing if your workers are on task, whether they’ve accepted that new job, or if you’ve gotten paid. Work smarter, not harder, and reap the benefits of being the best in your field.

Not clear on what your team is doing, or even where they are? Shed some light on the situation. With a field service app, get insight with updates as to employee location and work status. Send your workers job details and receive confirmation when they accept new jobs. When they update the customer details or job information in the field, you’ll see it back at the office, and you’ll even see when they’ve completed the job.


With a field service mobile app, you’ll also be better prepared to handle new jobs. Easily view and update employees’ schedules to find availabilities. And did your 3:00 cancel? No problem. Easily reschedule, and adjust your employee’s calendars to accommodate. Send them notifications so they know where to go next and keep everything on track.

But what’s the one of the biggest business stresses of all? Money Money Money!!! Don’t know if you are getting paid for everything? Nothing hurts more than working for free. With a field service mobile app like Fleetmatics WORK, record payments at the job site. Review quotes and questions with the customers on the job, send an invoice by e-mail on the spot. Back at the office, you can check the app to see if the account has been invoiced, so you know you’re getting paid - and getting paid FASTER. Fleetmatics WORK even integrates easily with most versions of MYOB Live, Xero, Reckon and Saasu, so you can cut out double data entry. Quote, invoice, and get paid all in one day. 

A field service app can help you to get better visibility and get rid of the stress. Take back your business and know how it’s running, all in real time. Most companies end up working harder not smarter because they fail to take advantage of opportunities. Be the company that starts working smarter instead of harder by implementing one of the best field service management systems and field service apps: Fleetmatics WORK.
