SAP Field Service Management

SAP FSM aims at enhancing the entire sphere connected with service management, simplification of service processes, as well as acquisition of opinions and assessments of service operations.

Customer Experience in SAP solutions

SAP FSM (Field Service Management) redefines the concept of Customer service in a situation where service repairs are required, introducing a solution which assists in managing the failure reporting process in a comprehensive manner: on the part of the customer – providing them with an intuitive application for contact with Customer Service; on the part of the serviceman – delivering a platform for notification management, its execution and assessment of effectiveness.

The solution has been designed in line with Customer Experience principles. Apart from increased satisfaction on the part of the Customer, acceleration and simplification of the process of reporting a repair need, transparency of reports, and higher accuracy of analyses with regard to the quality of Customer service are the basic benefits of using the solution from the perspective of a company implementing it.

How it works

ON THE PART OF THE CUSTOMER

in case of a failure, a customer uses his/her phone to scan the QR code or barcode on the device which needs to be repaired. He/she goes to a website at which they can automatically submit a service request, arrange a visit with a technician or order a damaged part, avoiding the necessity to call the helpline, send an email or search for a serviceman on their own. It is also possible to place an instruction for independent repair of a defect and fault in the application or to contact the technical team on a remote basis.

The process connected with service is very clear, providing a customer with precise information on what stage of the process they are in, what options of repair and communication with the service department are possible, when and how the repair will be conducted. From the moment of submitting the service request, customers can view the request status on their telephone.

ON THE PART OF THE SERVICE

contact with the Customer is much simpler and more transparent, allowing repairs to be executed faster. Furthermore, the number of queries sent directly to a consultant is lower due to the possibility of repairing a defect on one’s own. The SAP FSM solution enables one to prepare a checklist for Customer Service workers or technicians, making the repair process easier.
