Now field service platforms are available to make the auditing job quicker but also to improve data accuracy and enable faster decision making and real-time monitoring. This means that critical business decisions are more informed, and reports can be quickly and easily generated at any time.

More and more fıeld service departments and auditors are turning to technology to leverage the many improvements and opportunities that it can enable.

How these features can transform your business
The ability to capture and upload pictures provides an extra element of information and instead of spending time writing a long description about a physical problem like damaged stock or premises for example, a simple photo can quickly show all the important details.
The platform also makes it easier to manage staff that are based across multiple locations, enabling task management and performance management through an online solution, rather than needing to make phone calls or visits to delegate work to employees.
Instead of spending time collating and comparing all of the data in individual store reports each month, the automatically generated reports allow you to quickly view performance or other key insights for all stores in one report. This makes it a lot quicker for management to make critical decisions or react to issues immediately in order to prevent further consequences of the issues. For example, it could flag stock level issues that would be seen in real-time so the stock control team could quickly place the necessary orders, reducing the length of unavailability and lost sales.
The document import/export feature is also very handy to store all of the relevant information in one place and have the option to export from the software to be used in other ways, such as conducting performance reviews with staff.
