Field service evolution and field service maturity models are hot topics trending in field service management scenario. The evolution of the organisation from basic manual processes, right through to an automated stage and beyond, significantly delivers results to the organisation. But what does this maturity level mean to your organization. Is it necessary for all organisations to reach this high level in field service maturity?
The evolution of the organisation can be marked at various stages or levels. An organization’s field service team at the basic stage is purely reactive. The team’s operational development is restricted because of a paper-based process which has reduced visibility over the workflow. Managing field work will be on a function-based approach and thus reactive in nature, but follows a siloed operation with the focus only on the department.
Moving up through the next stages, or levels, of the maturity model, the last stage of maturity would be transformative in nature. Here, emerging technologies like IoT, AR/VR, AI and Machine Learning will surely come into picture and would be a potential influencer on field service operations.
At this stage of maturity, the organisation is fully connected across all departments. The company will be applying analysis to enable and improve performance, introduce innovations and work to differentiate their products and services from the competition and to add value to its business.
The maturity of the field service is affected by a number of factors, such as, the organization’s size their customers or market, the type of industry, the workflow complexity, the type of assets they make and service and definitely their top management.
Other factors that determine the maturity level include –
- The extent of growth of the field service and the solution to keep pace with and support operations.
- The flexibility to evolve, adapt and move to other concepts and solutions for growth.
- The efficiency to drive more productivity and service delivery
- Last but not the least, to increase business insight by using data available more than ever, understanding that the right field force management software is the key to get over to the next level.
