Easy to Use Job Management Software

Managing a growing medical equipment maintenance business, Activtec needed a solution that ensured they could continue to deliver exceptional customer service while improving the way they reported on assets and managed service for customers. The goal was simple: Get accurate data and imagery from site level maintenance and reactive works direct to clients at the right time and improve Activtec's service level.

Challenges faced.

As a growing service provider across the region, it was clear that a sustainable service solution to manage client service was required as the business took on more clients. Activtec CEO, Jared Hawkins, a firm believer in continual service improvement, knew it was time to change the way service was managed and delivered.

“The main challenges we faced was the inability to provide accurate and up to date data for our clients using our old paper-based system. This led to a lower level of confidence as data was at times prone to slight inaccuracy from possible human error and double handling of paper forms.

With a paper-based system, we also faced the challenge of scalability as we accumulated more and more data that needed to be filed and sorted. A Field Service solution was seen as a more scalable solution for the business. This further extended to how we invoiced, as data needed to flow accurately for invoicing. With a lag in the time data from paper forms was transferred to accounting, this resulted in longer lead times for our invoices. Having a solution to these challenges was critical to us.”

What were the top reasons Activtec selected Fieldmagic?

“Having trialed more than 5 different solutions, the key difference we saw in Fieldmagic was the flexibility to manage both preventative and reactive maintenance well, rather than focusing one workflow over the other. Fieldmagic also provided a solution fit for delivering a better customer experience when it comes to delivering reporting for clients, where the Fieldmagic Customer Portal provided realtime Asset Reporting. Further to this, it was very easy to get started, and the team at Fieldmagic supported us in the transition and training process. “
