Scanco Service App for Sage 100 ERP: 4 Benefits of Automating Field Service

Posted by Kimberly Tucker on Fri, Oct 16, 2015 @ 01:27 PM

Scanco Service for Sage 100

In addition to automating inventory tracking on trucks, mobile field service applications like the Scanco Field Service app for Sage 100, can help companies manage an entire field service operation from the palm of a hand.

Scanco Service is designed to help organizations achieve full field service automation, making both field workers and service technicians more efficient and more productive.

With the capability to perform truck counts and item inquiries as well as track jobs and drivers using GPS, mobile field service management solutions like Scanco Service can provide companies with everything they need to maintain a well-run service operation.

By having direct access to work orders, customer data and parts inventory from the convenience of a smartphone or tablet, field service workers have the tools they need to get more done daily.

Here are four benefits of using mobile field service applications to achieve full automation:

  1. Increased Customer Satisfaction
    When a field worker or service technician has full access to a customer’s complete service history and information, the opportunity to make valuable service suggestions presents itself alongside the ability to get the job done faster.
    This is a win-win for all parties.
    The customer receives personalized service while the service technician presents a proactive and professional demeanor, resulting in a positive customer experience and company image.


  2. Interactive Scheduling Capabilities
    Managing field service schedules can get complicated.
    With a mobile field service app like Scanco Service, back-office dispatchers have full access to each service technician’s schedule enabling adjustments and assignment of jobs as needed.
    This allows all parties to react quickly to changing schedules without the need to pick up the phone or come back into the office to check service boards. Every new job or existing job can be updated on the fly and communicated to service technicians directly on their mobile device.


  3. Faster Payment Collection
    Like mobile sales solutions, mobile field service solutions have the capability to collect payment out in the field.
    With mobile field service apps like Scanco Service, technicians have the ability to quote, invoice and accept payment for any work completed.
    Because the solution is integrated with the organization's Sage 100 ERP system, the entire transaction is updated instantly in the accounting module, eliminating the need to shuffle paperwork back and forth and engage in time-wasting data entry. With mobile field service, transactions occur in real-time allowing companies to receive payment faster.


  4. Guaranteed Accuracy
    In the field of customer service, accuracy is key.
    Customers want to know when the technician will arrive at their location, what they did, how much they will be charged and when the technician will be back to service the product.
    With Scanco Service, technicians can answer all of these questions confidently and accurately.
    Whether providing a quote, performing the job or accepting payment, technicians can give customers precisely accurate information while building a relationship of trust.

 

Could your field service operation use some automation?

 

Contact us today to learn how Scanco Service for Sage 100
can provide your company with the tools 
to better serve customers and better equip technicians.

Enterprise Mobility: Shifting into High Gear as Hottest ERP Trend

Posted by Kimberly Tucker on Thu, Mar 26, 2015 @ 01:15 PM
Enterprise Mobile ERP Applications Increase Productivity

What is Enterprise Mobility?
Enterprise mobility is a term that describes a shift in business practices allowing employees to conduct business out of the office by using mobile devices and cloud services to perform daily business tasks.  With the vast majority of the general population already smartphone and tablet owners, the shift to conducting business on the go, anywhere, any time via mobile apps is kicking into high gear! 

Advantages of Enterprise Mobility
Mobilizing the ERP or other business management solution of an organization has the power to completely change the way business is done.  Improvements in employee efficiency, increased speed in executive decision-making and better tracking of projects and tasks are just a few of the obvious benefits.

More advantages include:

  • Increased productivity as employees can input and send data anywhere, any time
  • Increased speed of information shared by employees
  • Reduction of paperwork traditionally created by employees on inspection and construction sites– data becomes more accurate and accessible
  • Easy and quick access to sales force data when on the road
  • Faster access to important information for better decision-making (essential for owners, executives and managers)
  • Real-time data recording to improve quality and reduce errors
  • Improved customer service and response times, which leads to increased customer satisfaction
  • More accurate billing and record keeping
  • Higher job completion rates
  • Competitive Advantage

 

Online vs. Offline Apps for Enterprise Mobility
Mobile business applications for both ERP & CRM come in two forms: Online or Offline.

Online applications utilize a set of software programs deployed on a mobile device that connects to an enterprise system through Internet connectivity. This app depends 100% on the availability of the Internet, in order to send and receive real-time data to and from the main database.

Offline applications involve a set of software programs deployed on a mobile device without the need for Internet connectivity. Storing real-time data is possible with an offline app as once there Internet connectivity returns, that data will automatically be sent to the main database.

 

Is Enterprise Mobilty really worth it?
ABSOLUTELY!
Most business executives are initially hesitant and unconvinced about adopting a mobile business application for their enterprise but it is important to realize that this shift in business practices is, in fact, the next step forward.  With the new capabilities of the Acumatica Cloud ERP App and the SugarCRM integrations, mobility truly is kicking into high gear and those who attempt to ignore it will be left behind.  

In summary, Klear Systems sees the current market climate as follows:

  1. Customers expect better and faster service.
  2. Executives expect less errors and increased productivity.
  3. Employees expect mobility with BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policy.

Enterprise Mobility is the solution to all three.

SugarCRM Aims to Enhance Mobile by Aquiring Assistant App Stitch

Posted by Kimberly Tucker on Tue, Mar 10, 2015 @ 09:32 AM

SugarCRM recently announced in a press release it has acquired the intellectual property rights and other assets of Stitch, leading developer of productivity-enhancing personal assistant technologies for mobile users.

While SugarCRM enables businesses to build top-notch client relationships with the most innovative and affordable Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solution available, Stitch has developed technologies that improve individual productivity which will enhance SugarCRM functionality even further.

SugarCRM CRM Mobile App Cloud Stitch

By making personalized recommendations to users based on integrated analysis of data in email, calendar and CRM systems, Stitch replicates the functions of a real-life personal assistant.  Stitch learns how people interact and tries to make timely and relevant suggestions through a mobile app that ultimately works to improve customer experiences.

Future releases of SugarCRM will be enhanced with Stitch capabilities, strengthening SugarCRM's leadership position in mobile innovation.  The merging of these two impressive forces also involves the addition of excellent mobile development talent from Stitch - the same team who won the $250,000 grand prize for a mobile app entered in the 2014 Salesforce Hackathon competition. The new hires should add a boost to SugarCRM, enambling them to rise up and lead in innovating the industry.

SugarCRM CEO Larry Augustin's excitement regarding the acquisition was obvious: “We’ve made Sugar an indispensable tool for customer-facing employees ... Sugar gives them the right information, when they need it, even before they ask. Incorporating Stitch will make Sugar an even smarter, better-informed customer relationship management system, and put information at mobile users’ fingertips no matter where they are.”

Stitch co-founder and head of product, Jason McDowall was also quoted stating his elation at the merge: “We’re proud of the work we’ve done, applying intelligence at the intersection of CRM, email and calendar data to make people more productive. We share the same vision as SugarCRM, and by combining our teams, we’re uniquely positioned to help shape the future of customer relationship management.”

 

“We’re very excited to be part of the SugarCRM family,” McDowall said.

 

We are too, Jason.

Welcome to the family!
