One constraint that all corporations fight against is time. As an employee, do you have enough time to get this job done as well as another? Do you as a manager have time to supervise employees the way you would like to, whilst balancing this with the administration work you must do? Do you as an owner have enough time to keep in contact with all your clients whilst actively trying to find new ones? A lack of time can be an efficiency and productivity killer for a developing or mature company, and without the option to increase your workforce you could find that you plateau. Increasing your workforce is not the only option to make the most of the hours in a day. One way to increase the time you have is by introducing Field Service Management Software that can help you cut down on time-consuming activities, leaving employees, managers, and owners to do the important stuff; running your corporation successfully. There are many ways a full-featured system could help. Here are the three most important ways in which FSM Software could save you time.
1. Integrated Accounting
Any good Field Service Management system should help cut down on needless administration. Using software that integrates with your accounting package, could drastically reduce the time you spend on accounting and invoicing. This is because the software has a built-in invoicing system; one which will integrate with all the key accounting programmes including Sage, Xero, and QuickBooks. This means no double handling and less need for additional members of staff, cutting down on costs and time.
2. Better Contact with Employees
FSM like Eworks Manager ensures better contact between employees and employers. In the past, morning meetings would take time but be necessary for keeping on top of where employees were at with projects, or what their plan for the day was. With good Field Service Management Software, you can keep up to date of all this, but without the time-consuming meeting. The software allows for individual oversight, re-assignment and any manner of changes with no need to be in the same room or even in the same building; perfect for corporations whose employees are always on the move.
3. Faster Transactions
For some corporations, the biggest time waster is also the most important; invoicing. With Eworks Manager and almost all Field Service Management systems, your employees will be able to complete electronic job sheets and all digitized documents in the field, speeding up the process from job completion to invoicing a job. Giving your customer an invoice the day their job is completed can speed up the payment process, and as a result, saving time and improving a corporations cash flow. Good FSM Software like Eworks Manager will help your company in many ways. Integrated accounting, faster transactions and better communication with employees are just some of the benefits to be gained from introducing the software to your corporation. But the biggest benefit is the extra time you will suddenly have available, and this is something you can’t put a price on!
