Field Service Automation Redefined

Morning Preparation: The Pre-Visit Stage

John begins his day by sifting through outdated spreadsheets and paper records to gather information about the machines he needs to inspect. This process often leaves him with incomplete data, causing delays and confusion. John uses Entytle’s IB HealthCheck, which provides complete visibility of the installed base, including details about assets, parts, and locations. The app also auto-suggests the correct checklist based on the asset or plant type.

IB Healthcheck-led Field Service Automation Benefits:

  • Time Saved: No more manual data gathering.
  • Increased Accuracy: Comprehensive, up-to-date information at his fingertips.

The Inspection: During the Visit

On-site, John relies on generic checklists, often missing crucial steps because they aren’t tailored to the specific equipment or plant. He manually jots down notes, takes pictures with a separate camera, and hopes he remembers everything correctly. During his visit, John follows an intuitive, guided checklist provided by the app, tailored specifically to the equipment he’s inspecting. He inputs data, captures images, and takes notes directly in the application. The IB Healthcheck’s logical decision tree prompts him with the right questions at the right time.

IB Healthcheck led FSM Benefits:

  • Efficiency: The tailored checklist ensures no steps are missed.
  • Accuracy: Correct data collection reduces errors.
  • Convenience: Everything is done within the app, including capturing images and notes.

Post-Visit: Reporting and Follow-Up

After returning from his visits, John spends hours compiling his notes and creating detailed reports. This time-consuming task delays follow-up actions and often leads to missed opportunities for service improvements. The app auto-generates a comprehensive visit report immediately after the inspection. This report includes all data, images, and notes collected during the visit. It identifies gaps and opportunities, allowing John to propose actionable recommendations to the customer. All data is seamlessly integrated into the CRM system, enabling timely follow-ups by the sales and service teams.
