Irvine, CA (PRWEB) August 27, 2013
FieldConnect, Inc., the leading provider of workforce mobility solutions for Microsoft Dynamics SL, announced today that Tampa Bay Trane, a longtime provider of HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) equipment, control service repairs, and maintenance of existing HVAC systems, has implemented FieldQuotes to manage leads and close business from the field.
Like all FieldConnect mobility solutions, FieldQuotes integrates directly with Microsoft Dynamics SL, pulling information such as service agreement information and special pricing and labor rates from rate tables and inventories, to give service technicians a jump on closing business on the spot, or routing a quote to the back office for approval. Whether being used by a field service technician, a sales executive, or a Service Manager, FieldQuotes’ sophisticated workflow preserves back office control by placing limits on the jobs that can be quoted and closed without approval and provides the option to automatically route to multiple estimators for review and order entry, thereby allowing the parts needed to complete the job to be ordered in a shortened period of time.
“We are fortunate to have great relationships within the Dynamics SL community,” says FieldConnect President Rick Galyean. “Some of the specifications for our dispatching solution were molded by longtime members of the SL Users Group, and now we’ve had the opportunity to work with Tim Barnes at Tampa Bay Trane to develop and test the framework for this unique field service quoting solution.”
“We pride ourselves on having the most knowledgeable technicians and the best response time in our service area,” says Service Sales and Operations Manager Barnes. “Giving our technicians and sales staff the ability to provide on-the-spot HVAC equipment or controls service quotes will improve our ability to solve our customers’ problems quickly. FieldQuotes will remove the delay that can be caused by having to provide an office-prepared quote for HVAC service repair. Having integrated quoting software also allows our technicians and sales staff to create a proposal without having to remember or know a customer’s negotiated labor or material rates. Field Quotes will definitely give Tampa Bay Trane a competitive advantage in our marketplace and more importantly, we’ll be more effective and efficient at solving our customers’ service issues.”
FieldConnect provides an end-to-end workforce mobility solution, including:
In addition to Microsoft Dynamics SL, FieldConnect solutions integrate directly with Microsoft Dynamics AX, GP, and NAV, as well as Sage 300 Construction & Real Estate and Sage 300 Trade Specialty (Sage 300, formerly Sage Timberline), making critical data from the accounting system visible throughout the organization, and bringing field service organizations to a level of unparalleled productivity.
