Field Service Lightning Connects Your Workforce

Field Service Lightning Connects Your Workforce

Salesforce’s Field Service Lightning (FSL) was designed to connect your workforce, enabling them to deliver intelligent and productive on-site services. It allows for faster delivery and smarter and more personalized service from the phone to the field on one platform. But the truth is, FSL does so much more.

Smarter and Faster Service

When it comes to helping your team work smarter, FSL greatly improves not only the customer experience, but you also get more productivity from your field agents on every call. Just think how beneficial it would be for your company if you could locate the closest field agent or technician in proximity to a customer or match them with a representative that has the right skill set to get the job done.

And with the help of equipment and inventory management tools, every field agent can be equipped with the proper tools and sufficient knowledge to get the job done – the first time – to the customer’s satisfaction.

And when it comes to working faster, using FSL’s Einstein-enabled artificial intelligence could, for example, help a dishwasher repairman who needs to replace a water inlet valve to simply snap a picture of the valve, and Einstein will quickly identify the exact product type—saving time for the customer, repairman, and the company.

Manage Jobs 24/7 from Anywhere

Without question, the biggest advantage companies will get from implementing an FSL solution is mobility, 24/7 from anywhere. Premium FSL features that your field agents can bring to their on-site jobs – even without a connection – include:

  • Knowledge articles
  • Real-time collaboration
  • Instant access to job schedules
  • Stock and inventory visibility
  • Barcode scanning in-app
  • Capture signatures digitally in-app
  • Technician-controlled scheduling management

Additionally, using the fully customizable mobile iOS or Android app, your field agents can send geolocation information back to your company’s scheduler, or chat with other company employees. The app also allows agents to take advantage of custom layouts, list views, tailored actions, Salesforce flows, and can even connect to other apps.

Why Your Business Needs a CRM

Why Your Business Needs a CRM

From revealing sales opportunities to tracking every single customer interaction, implementing a Customer Relationship Management platform (CRM) positions your business for real growth.

Why is a CRM Important?

At its core, CRM enables your business to deepen relationships with your customers, service users, colleagues, partners, and suppliers. You can see everything in one place. There's a simple, customizable dashboard that can show you your customer’s previous history with you. You will also see the status of their orders, any outstanding customer service issues, and much more.

Think of CRM as a tool that creates a 360° view of your customers.

CRM also helps you find new customers, win their business, and keep them happy by organizing customer and prospect information in a way that helps you build stronger relationships with them and grow your business faster.

CRM is Not Just for Sales Teams

A CRM platform implementation helps the sales team to better understand their sales pipeline. Sales managers can access reliable information about the progress of individual team members. Sales reps can spend more time selling and less time inputting data. Less time, means they’re more productivity!

But other departments in your company will benefit from a CRM, too.

For instance, marketing teams use CRM to make forecasting simpler and more accurate. Sales gets a clear vision of every opportunity or lead through a mapping of the whole customer journey from inquiry through to sale, with a better understanding of the sales pipeline. Marketing can then use that information to create email, social media, and advertising campaigns targeting your company’s leads.

Another department that benefits from a CRM implementation is Customer Service. Those teams can effectively track conversations across multiple channels. Perhaps a customer might raise an issue in one channel – say, Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter – then Customer Service teams can switch to email, phone or live chat to resolve the issue in private.

Remember, without a common platform for customer interactions, communications can be missed or lost in a sea of information. That leads to an unsatisfactory response to a valued customer.

Additionally - and you may never have thought of this - but your HR department can also benefit from a CRM platform. It enables the team to accelerate recruitment, track employee performance, speed the on-boarding process, analyze resourcing needs, identify skills gaps, and support the staff retention targets.

What Else Can a CRM Do?

A CRM platform can also connect to other business apps that help you to further develop customer relationships. A CRM solution can also integrate with your other business tools, such as an ERP, EHR/EMR, document signing, and accounting and billing. Now, information flows freely, giving you a true 360° view of your customer.

Lastly, today's new generation of CRM platforms goes one step further with built-in intelligence. This automates administrative tasks, like data entry and lead or service case routing, so your teams can free up time for more valuable activities.

These automatically generated insights will help you understand your customers better. They will also predict how customers will feel and act so that you can prepare the right outreach.

Ad Victoriam’s team of consultants can show you how a Salesforce CRM platform implementation can change and grow with your company’s processes. That helps with efficiencies and will have an enormous impact on your company’s bottom line. Let's talk today! Just fill out the form below, or click here.
