Service Management - Stand Alone, or built into your ERP

Infor Service Management (ISM)

Service Van

Combine function and strategy.

Completing service requests isn’t enough. A world class service organization is also about strategy. It’s about insights into parts
availability, workforce readiness, scheduling optimization, and sales opportunities. A service company today has to be smart. Managers have to make decisions quickly and with confidence, based on real-time data they know is accurate and complete. No guesses.  No day-old spreadsheets from isolated systems.

Managers aren’t the only ones who need data. Providing a customer with efficient, cost-effective lifecycle management of technical equipment is a team effort, involving many departments, from accounting to warehouse management and
shipping. Front-line agents, billing clerks, and scheduling/dispatch managers all require information. Most importantly, it must be information from one shared, real-time database. That’s the only way to prevent costly, dangerous gaps in communication, discrepancies, delays, and errors.
