How it works

Connected Field Service Solution Scenario Infographic

The Connected Field Service solution allows manufacturers to know about problems before the customer does and solve them at the smallest cost to the organization.

In a simple scenario, where an abnormality is detected, a sensor sends an alert off to an Azure IoT Hub. This triggers a configurable workflow process within Dynamics 365 for Field Service.

A field technician is dispatched then arrives onsite to resolve the problem, ensuring a first-time fix.

This proactive approach improves customer satisfaction and resource productivity by catching issues and troubleshooting them remotely—before they significantly impact your business.
