Create personalized dashboards easily and turn raw data into rich visuals to track progress and spot trends as they happen. Acumatica’s business intelligence can also leverage Microsoft Power BI to deliver insights from multiple data sources that are key to your business.
Team Approach to Sales and Service
Customer Management (CRM) is part of Acumatica, not a loosely integrated module. From marketing, quoting, bidding, to installing and field services, the customer information is visible throughout the organization providing a 360-degree field of all customer interactions. When selling equipment, the installation appointment can be scheduled while the user is in order entry. (Customer Management is sold as an optional application.)
Track Project Costs
Field Service Management is not just for small projects. When the installations are very large (tasks, people, or equipment), all the costs (time, materials, and expenses) of each phase of the project are tracked in Acumatica Project Accounting (sold as an optional application). Compare actual project costs with original and revised budgets in real time.
Optimal Route Planning
Optimize routes for appointments with the ability to filter appointments by several different criteria. Routes are plotted in Google Maps for each service person with lists of required resources (equipment or machine).Graphical displays show the routes and order status with different colors, enabling dispatchers to rapidly respond to problems and make route changes. Routes are designed to minimize drive time and changes to the route are instantly redrawn and available on the field technician’s mobile device.
In field services, tools and repair parts are typically spread across multiple vehicles and warehouse locations. With Acumatica, you can control and track these locations and costs. Since inventory and purchasing are integrated, replenishment orders can be sent to a specific location and, when the parts arrive, the dispatcher can schedule the service appointment for installation.
Service Contract Management
Recurring service contracts are a significant source of revenue. Visibility on renewal dates for each contract helps preserve the revenue. Dashboards can alert the service team of expiring contracts. Your team can create and manage multiple service schedules per customer and fine-tune appointments using the Schedule Calendar Board for staff and resources.
