How it works
The Connected Field Service solution allows manufacturers to know about problems before the customer does, and solve them at the smallest cost to the organization. This solution helps manufacturers implement a servitization model to field service.
In a simple scenario, when an abnormality is detected, a sensor sends an alert off to an Azure IoT Hub. This triggers a configurable workflow process within Dynamics 365 for Field Service.
A field technician is dispatched and arrives on-site to resolve the problem, ensuring a first-time fix. This also creates an opportunity to take advantage of the close customer relationship and sell more products and services.
A proactive servitization approach improves customer satisfaction. It also ensures resource productivity by catching issues and troubleshooting them remotely—before they significantly impact your business—and helps maintain your technicians as profitable resources.
