PLEASANTON, CA – July 15, 2019 – ServiceMax, the leading provider of cloud-based software for service execution management, today revealed the results of its new survey of customers to better understand how real-world organizations benefit from service execution management technology – and areas where even the most advanced organizations can improve, including measurable impact on key performance indicators such as Net Promoter Score (NPS) and employee engagement. Partnering with market research consultancy Wakefield Research, the ServiceMax Impact Report analyzes the impact that service organizations track by leveraging ServiceMax’s field service management and asset service management solutions. Further, the report shares insights for service leaders to help them go beyond productivity and efficiency gains and rethink approaches to workforce management, asset service strategies and customer experience that drive service transformation.
Today’s service leaders and their technicians in the field need the right tools and knowledge to keep critical equipment running – and to exceed customers’ ever-changing expectations for uptime and support. Service jobs take many forms – a field service technician drives three hours to a remote hospital to perform preventive maintenance on an MRI machine; the head of security at an office building calls their maintenance team to fix a broken surveillance camera; an aviation MRO crew waits in a hangar to perform planned maintenance on a 787 jet engine – and these service calls all require specialized skills, effective logistical coordination and varying levels of planning to ensure the job is executed effectively and efficiently.
Service is not a one-size fits-all industry. This year, survey results reveal companies that have started their digital service transformation journey are seeing impact across their service business and bottom line. By providing digital tools that engage the service workforce, provide visibility into the install base as maintained in the field and address increasing demands for a seamless customer experience, ServiceMax customers are able to provide insight and impact to board level initiatives.
