Infomill today announced it has joined the ServiceMax Marketplace to help field technicians find the answers needed to repair equipment. Field technicians can now quickly and accurately find the answers to analyze and repair equipment by the seamless integration of product information including service manuals, parts catalogs and troubleshooting directly with ServiceMax. Having all critical information in one place makes the technician’s job easier and safer, as well as reducing costs to their company and end-customer by providing quick and intuitive access to relevant content through the AnswersAnywhere platform. Repair processes can be followed with exploded diagrams and 3D parts images checked before ordering. Updates can be incorporated so the latest version of information is always available.
AnswersAnywhere takes existing customer source data and repurposes typically disparate and inconsistent information into valuable, structured and platform-neutral content. The combination of the AnswersAnywhere highly experienced technical content team and the new platform allows a complete turn-key service to be available for the first time with immense field service opportunities.
“I have found the ‘can-do’ attitude of the team at ServiceMax who want to exceed their customer expectations to be very much in line with the way we have always worked at Infomill,” stated Jonathan Ralphs, CEO at Infomill. “A good business relationship is for the long-term and I believe the ServiceMax Marketplace will be successful because it brings together carefully assessed partners with ServiceMax who can commit to working together and serve the customer for the common good of all,” Mr Ralphs added.
“As organizations increasingly turn to technology to deliver flawless field service and empower their employees to turn customers into raving fans, it couldn’t be a better time to aggregate the most promising solutions in a single marketplace,” said Dave Yarnold, CEO of ServiceMax. “The 34 partners in the ServiceMax Marketplace are able to address the unique, needs of field service organizations, helping them to deliver better service to their customers and keep our world running.”

There are thousands of users in hundreds of companies relying daily on Infomill’s technology and platforms to service and maintain equipment. These users have benefitted from increasing the number of jobs per day, improving customer satisfaction and decreasing incorrectly ordered parts.
