15 business leaders joined Meet the Boss and ClickSoftware in London for an evening of lively discussion around the topic of field service management.


Venue St James’s Hotel & Club

Synopsis

There is nothing more tarnishing to brand reputation than poor customer service. The modern day consumer has a new perspective (irrespective of sector or business), and they expect and demand a level of real-time communication and visibility. Service levels provided from retailers, such as Amazon and Uber, are driving expectations across the board, forcing other industries to play catch up.

With this new customer expectation of service organisations, customer satisfaction rates have never been as important as now in regards to being the number one goal. This focus on the customer requires organisations and service leaders to shift their focus, empower the field service team, and offer services that deliver value for the customer. Simply meeting an SLA is no-longer going to keep customers, get them to spend more, or inspire them to refer new clients.

Attend this exclusive C-level dinner and discussion to learn more about the innovative ways top performing field service organisations engage with their customers whilst also delivering measurable business value. You will learn:

  • How to develop motivated, productive service engineers – transforming them into brand ambassadors and your customers into fans
  • How you can exceed industry benchmarks for customer satisfaction at the lowest cost
  • Explore what is required to deploy best-in-class field service operations without disrupting the business

As pressure builds on enterprises to deliver differentiation, customer retention and value through the quality of customer experiences, enterprise investment focus is shifting relentlessly towards field service operations. New Cloud-based field service solutions route the ‘right’ skilled service operative to the right location, with the right customer insights and knowledge, and with the right tools to deliver a ‘right first time’ maintenance or repair operation – all at a lower cost to the enterprise.

These systems not only reinvent field service from a customer perspective, but also from an enterprise efficiency and effectiveness view.
