mobileX-MIP for Field Service
Service technicians must be familiar with more and more complex products. Without mobile software that also integrates spare parts and knowledge management, this is almost impossible today. In addition, the advisory function of the technician on site at the customer's premises is increasingly in demand.
mobileX-MIP for Field Service is a mobile software solution that supports the service technician in machine and plant construction. Employees use it to receive their orders on their mobile device while on the road. They can access order data in back-end systems, create their service reports or forms on site and transfer them to the head office for further processing.
Make your service outstanding
Mobile order processing
With mobileX-MIP for Field Service, the technician receives orders directly on the mobile device. He starts well prepared from home to the first assignment. Even in dead zones he retains all the information such as a message from the client, documents or the customer history on his device.
Service report with customer signature
The technician creates the service report at the press of a button. This report includes all services, such as times, transportation costs, and material consumption. Courtesy services can also be marked as needed. The customer signs the completed service report and/or the technician completes it digitally on his or her mobile device. mobileX-MIP for Field Service creates the PDF service report and archives it automatically in the back office (such as SAP CS job). The customer also receives the report in advance by e-mail.
Intelligent material logistics
mobileX-MIP for Field Service provides the technician on-site with an inventory-managed technician stock (vehicle stock). Consumed materials are automatically reported to the back office (such as SAP MM). If minimum stock levels have been entered, the back office automatically orders more for the technician stock. The entire material logistics process thereby benefits from a significant increase in efficiency in the service area. This includes the processing of returns.
On site: Sales lead, cost estimate, etc.
Direct contact with the customer on-site is very important for the company and the service organisation in many respects. The technician can create cost estimates or even generate sales leads, for example. mobileX-MIP for Field Service (in combination with "Dynamic Forms1") forwards this data seamlessly to the office-based staff or to the relevant sales organisation.

Day-to-day business and system start-up in a single tool
With mobileX-MIP for Field Service, the technician not only handles day-to-day business and malfunctions, but the solution can also be used in system start-up jobs lasting multiple days. For example, technicians create their activity confirmations each day with a customer signature. Invoices can thus be created earlier and the office-based staff remains informed of current progress at all times.
Travel Expense Manager Module
Technicians use the module to record their travel expenses. They can enter expenses including receipts, flat rates and kilometers driven in the application. Using the mobileX-SAP ERP add-on, the data is then transferred to the SAP travel expenses transaction PR05 for internal billing and posting.
Increased customer satisfaction
A more efficient troubleshooting, higher punctuality and an improved ability to provide information for customers enhance the service quality and thereby increase customer satisfaction.
Better data quality
The validation of texts in data entry on site and the avoidance of media breaks through the direct transfer into backend systems contribute to a much higher quality of service reports, feedback and forms.
Through mobile access to customer history, object data and material logistics queries by phone can be avoided as well as second journeys.
