Before we get into the detail of what the new module entails, let's first understand the history of Field Service Management and why the update is important!

It took a significant amount of time out of either your life or your employee's life. It also took a lot of precision to keep track of all the unpredictable changes that could occur at any time.
Things like delays, miscommunication, and incorrect or incomplete information inevitably cluttered many companies, and while electronic databases certainly did solve some of the pain points, they were still exceedingly prone to human error. As technology advanced, and systems began to communicate with each other more easily, the next step was to devise a technological solution that would assist with managing field service operations, relieving frustrated owners and employees of many of the inefficiencies from traditional process. The result was sophisticated field service management (FSM) technology.
