Infowave's Mobile Enterprise (IME) for Field Service is designed for field service professionals that provide maintenance and repair functions. IME allows mobile professionals to send and receive work orders, document service calls on-site, and order parts, all at the point-of-work. By being able to access critical data from the service site, the technician can complete the job correctly the first time, reducing call backs and greatly improving customer service. Technicians can also generate invoices from backend systems, gain customer approval and signature, and complete the payment process onsite, decreasing customer disputes, shortening the billing cycle and improving cash flow. Additionally, management gets visibility into the activities and efficiencies of their field maintenance workforce and can more effectively manage costs and materials.
