TEC Research Shows Efficient Field Service Management (FSM) Pivotal in the Age of the Customer

In today’s market, everything starts and ends with the customer. This shift in focus from product to customer led to an unprecedented growth in field service management (FSM) software. One of the main factors contributing to this continuous growth is the need of service-based organizations to have a standalone solution focused on efficiently maintaining a positive customer experience at a competitive cost; ergo a FSM solution.  Identified by TEC analysts, there are more than 1,000 features that are sought by organizations in need of FSM. TEC’s online FSM software evaluation system matches key requirements with industry-leading solutions, to help organizations evaluate and compare these features and choose the best-fit solution for their needs.
