Field Service businesses require a well-functioned, well-organized operation to run smoothly.

We want you to avoid inconveniences, so we compiled a list of the 4 best practices for Field Service Operations.

A ‘First-Time Fix’ for Your Field Service Organization

A first-time fix is the ability of a technician to resolve an issue during one appointment. Field service businesses reported that a field technician has to do at least one follow up visit on about 23% of all service calls. Having to revisit a customer site becomes costly, reduces asset availability, and sometimes response time. On average, dispatching technicians can cost anywhere between $500 to $1,000 which can begin to eat away at your business if repeat visits are occurring at high rates.
