Field Service: With Epicor 9

Epicor Mobile Field Service eliminates the data synchronisation issues resulting from antiquated technology lacking connectivity between your operation and your field service staff. Epicor Mobile maintains robust and secure mobile access to key business functions without the need for a continuous connection.

Epicor Mobile Field Service simplifies job fulfillment and data entry on location. Meanwhile, service call job rosters, labor, equipment, materials, and inventory can be managed, modified, updated, and tracked using a mobile scheduling and dispatch console or directly within Epicor next-generation ERP.

“Epicor Mobile is an excellent extension of our existing Epicor 9 ERP system,” explained Jonathon Bonnici, systems implementation manager with Tieman Industries – an early adopter of both Epicor 9 and Epicor Mobile Field Service. Tieman is the leading manufacturer of liquid road tankers, dock products, freight hoists, scissor hoists, tail lifts and vehicle disability access equipment in Australia. “Our business provides support at remote locations for specialised products, so achieving visibility into a wireless workforce is a serious step forward. It will allow us to better manage our assets in real-time and makes life easier for employees on location.”

Epicor Field Service provides secure, remote, mobile access to key ERP or Service Management functions and data with real-time synchronisation of data.
