Some problems can even be solved remotely, saving on service calls. Proactivity such as this can significantly reduce downtime and benefit your customers and your business.

Keeping track of your customer data and looking for even more ways to improve your customer relationships will keep you ahead of your competitors. With Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Field Service, your customers can be informed of schedules and be kept up to date on your technician’s location and estimated arrival time.
