CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – February 9, 2016 – Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the software company empowering the world’s leading enterprises with strategic business applications, today announced the launch of Pega Field Service, a new application that allows organizations to extend superior customer service capabilities to their field technicians and agents. Pega Field Service unifies and streamlines the entire field service operation from first call to final resolution on a single platform, providing a more satisfying customer experience and enabling a more productive field workforce while driving down operational costs.
As businesses scramble to meet soaring customer expectations, field service represents a relatively untapped but growing opportunity to differentiate brand experiences and improve customer satisfaction while driving more revenue. With a comprehensive customer service dashboard and fully integrated native mobile app, Pega Field Service allows organizations to manage field interactions end-to-end to ensure each job is done right the first time in the fastest and most effective manner possible.
Pega Field Service provides out-of-the-box functionally that enables field service organizations to unify data and processes across the front and back office for a 360-degree view of the customer. By tapping into Pega’s best-in-class predictive analytics and guided interactions, customer service reps will always know the next best action to take in real time based on a complete assessment of each situation. A centralized management control panel monitors activity from customer service reps on the phone through scheduling and dispatching technicians in the field. The fully integrated mobile app allows field workers to efficiently complete their job with advanced features such as digital signature capture to confirm completed work in real time and barcode scanning to ensure the right equipment is matched to the right part every time.
Pega Field Service is easily customized for a wide array of field service scenarios, such as:
- On-the-spot claims adjustments after an accident for insurance agents
- Broadband installations for media and communications technicians
- Home inspections and appraisals for mortgage bankers
- In-home wellness visits by healthcare professionals
- Emergency disaster response during a hurricane or earthquake for government agencies
- Equipment repair and maintenance for energy, life sciences, high tech, and numerous other industries
Built on the Pega 7 platform, Pega Field Service takes advantage of the latest Pega 7 platform capabilities to enable improved mobile functionality. These capabilities allow users to more effectively work in the application while offline in areas with limited connectivity. Mobile applications built on the platform such as Pega Field Service also support larger data sets in offline mode. This means end users can access data such as entire parts catalogs or full customer lists on the go. Lastly, users will experience faster, more responsive touch interactions along with new features such as auto complete.
