From generating expenses to building competitive advantage

Could field work mean something beyond just maintaining the equipment base? We’re approaching field work through three levels of maturity.

At the first level, field service is considered a reactive service, allowing the customer to request a maintenance person onsite if needed. The goal of the service is to rectify issues as swiftly as possible.

On the second level, customers are offered a proactive service, such as annual maintenance of devices or periodic inspection visits. The goal of the service is to extend the lifespan of the devices.

At the third level, customers are offered predictive service, such as the identification and rectification of potential problems before they even surface. At this stage, fieldwork leverages modern technology, including IoT (Internet of Things) and artificial intelligence, which allows for intervention at the first signs of trouble. The goal is to ensure uninterrupted operation for the client and to minimize production losses resulting from these issues.

Unexpected stoppages due to equipment failures cost a lot of money for customers.

The same principles that apply to customer service also apply to field work. By the time a customer contacts you because a device has broken down, you’re already too late. The goal of proactive and predictive field work is to spot potential problems before they actually cause any harm. Usually devices don’t just break down on a suddenly. IoT sensors for example are capable of detecting warning signs well in advance.
