Answering Service App

FIELDBOSS is excited to announce a secure way to enable answering service companies’ to access your environment. FIELDBOSS 5.0 gives your answering service provider the ability to create work orders and dispatch on-call technicians through your system.


How it works for the answering service:

  • The Answering Service App is designed with a focus on ease of use and system security. When opening up a new call, the customer service representative will be able to see account credit hold status, servicing notes, and any relevant client details.

How it works for technicians:

  • No need to work in multiple systems. Technicians will be dispatched just like they would during the regular working day! They can identify full-service history of the building and equipment with ease and update their times based on multiplier depending on when the work was provided.

How it works for your office team:

  • With both the answering service and your technician using the system as it operates day-to-day, there are no additional processes or work to be done. Just review the calls from the night before, clean up any errors and you're good to go!
