The field services industry depends on data. Companies need to track orders, customer experience, and other ever-changing details. To maximize your business, you need this information in real-time.
The success of any field services business always depends on the amount of fleet and workforce management data that is collected. Technology can help you gather this information, which can be used to determine trends and improve the customer experience. Companies who analyze and use this data will optimize business operations and the services they provide.
Analytics is a major part of the optimization process. A recent study revealed that field service organizations deploying analytics technology could experience a service profit increase of 18% and a customer retention rate of 42%. These best-in-class companies were successful because they leveraged the power of this technology in their day-to-day operations.
How analytics improves customer service
Field service organizations depend on excellent customer service for growth. Positive experiences yield customer loyalty and future revenue.
Customers will measure the credibility and integrity of an organization based on the type of work performed and the effectiveness of the information communicated to them. Best-in-class companies will improve operations by using real-time analytics to improve customer experience in areas such as:
- Reducing travel time
- Optimizing scheduling
- Setting customer-centric service delivery goals
Customers notice when field service employees are on time for appointments and when a problem is resolved during the first visit. This results in repeat business and positive reviews.
Paying attention to what the analytics say about the customer experience will help you always place clients at the center of what you do. While it is important to reduce costs where possible, you should never do so in a way that will compromise quality. Fortunately, there is one tool that will always help you exceed customer expectations while increasing profits.
