What’s New with Oracle Field Service Cloud: May 2015 Release

With the acquisition of TOA Technologies in 2014, the Oracle Service Cloud added field service management to its solution portfolio. Formerly TOA’s ETAdirect, Oracle Field Service Cloud helps Oracle customers extend customer service excellence to the field while powering greater efficiencies.

As a part of the Oracle Service Cloud family, the Oracle Field Service Cloud team is excited to announce several new features in its latest release in May 2015. With a focus on integration, as well as improving both user and customer experience, new features included in the latest Oracle Field Service Cloud include:

Manage in Mobile – This mobile-friendly redesign of the Oracle Field Service Core Manage solution makes it easier for service managers and dispatchers to manage field teams from smartphones and tablets, helping customers keep pace with consumer trends. A resized display and improved scrolling and swipe functionality provide a consistent user experience across all devices.

Oracle Service Cloud Accelerator – Customers can now quickly and easily connect the call center to the field – leveraging the Oracle Field Service Cloud’s predictive routing and scheduling functionality directly within the Oracle Service Cloud Agent Desktop. Learn more about this Accelerator in this recent blog post by Stephen Fioretti, vice president of product management for Oracle Service Cloud.

Rebranding – The solution formerly known as TOA’s ETAdirect is now Oracle Field Service Cloud. Upon upgrading to version 15.5, all users will see refreshed login screens and Oracle branding – including the Oracle iconography and color palette – across the product. However, customers will still be able to customize with their own branding schemes if preferred.

Along with the features introduced in the February 2015 release, these new Oracle Field Service Cloud features aim to support the Oracle Service Cloud team’s focus on critical integrations and improving the user experience. Included in the February 2015 Oracle Field Service Cloud release were features such as routing visualization, multi-day view, mobile form editor and mobile booking capabilities.

Fusion CRM: Sales Teams Define New User Experience

One of the advantages of building a new application from the ground up is you can define a whole new user experience. And that's exactly what Arin Bhowmick, Director, CRM User Experience (UX) at Oracle, and his team of UX experts did for Oracle Fusion CRM and other Fusion applications

Uncovering What Salespeople Really Need

“The keys to building the best user experience were building in a lot of flexibility in ways to support sales, and being useful,” Bhowmick said. “We did that by talking to and analyzing the needs of a lot of people in different roles.”

The team studied real-life sales teams. “We wanted to study salespeople in context with their work,” Bhowmick said. “We studied all user types in the CRM world because we wanted to build a user interface and user experience that would cater to sales representatives, marketing managers, sales managers, and more. Not only did we do studies in our labs, but also we did studies in the field and in mobile environments because salespeople are always on the go."

Watch Arin discuss the process in this video:

Based on the feedback, the team did a great job! For more information on the UX design process go to the User Experience website.
