All businesses experience cycles of activity. For those in the gas and heating industry it’s often the summer months when things slow down while others, such as the pest control sector may find winter brings a lull in custom.

So, what do you do during the quieter times? Do you take time out and relax, or do you take the opportunity to do something else?

It’s these quieter times that provide the ideal window to assess your operations and review your work processes and business objectives. By comparing the way your business operates and its progress made against your business plan, you can highlight areas where improvements are needed.

A business with smoothly-executed operations is essential for workforce efficiency, optimised productivity and, ultimately, increased profitability.

This is where a review of your field service management software may be useful. Field Service technology is integral to the smooth running of your business and ensuring it’s fit for purpose is an astute move. If it isn’t performing in line with your business needs, it’s time to consider switching providers.

And what better time do this than those slower months, so that you have the resources to review your requirements and implement changes in readiness for the inevitable increase in work load.

We have talked about this previously here.

When changing your field service software consider this:

Be prepared to change. Beginning your journey to improving your mobile workforce operations is likely to involve changing both the processes your staff follow and getting to grips with how the new software works. Being prepared and communicating the changes to everyone involved will make the whole process a lot easier to manage.

Take time to train. Refreshing employee training will be necessary when implementing new field service software. You need to make sure all parties, including office staff and those working out in the field, are using it effectively and confidently so that it reaps the best possible benefits for your business.

Switching your field service software could be the best move you make to secure the future success of your business; and doing it during your slower months is an ideal time!
