Industrial and complex original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) see great market potential and growth in the post installation/ commissioning services space. However, there are numerous challenges that OEMs face in scaling up the service business. Most of them believe that field service optimization is core to improving their competitive positions.

The Service Experience Platform offering is a comprehensive and innovative offering that provides end-to-end solution for the services business. The process scope starts from the identification of the issue at the point of service to the closure of the service call either through the generation of the invoice (for non-planned Work) or with the closure of the service request upon confirmation received via signature capture (for planned work).
