Field Service Management Market: Overview
Field Service Management (FSM) is a system developed for managing field operations through a mobile application or software. FSM software solution enables the companies to manage field resources such as vehicle location, field worker activity and ensure delivery of spare parts to the operational field. FSM solution assigns work according to the skills and geographical location of the field employee and checks inventory for the availability of spare parts. The process for FSM contains various modules such as administrator, initiator, qualifier, dispatcher and agent.
Administrator module manages all data related to business operation. Initiator module enables the customer/agent to generate new work order and groups the tasks/work order. Qualifier module qualifies the work orders and creates work order tasks. Dispatcher module schedules the tasks and assign tasks to suitable field employee. Agent module manages actual task time and performs the work on the site. FSM software could also be integrated with backend systems such as billing, accounting and HR systems.
