Generative AI's Impact on Field Service Teams
You're a field technician, and your morning begins with a leisurely coffee and stop by the warehouse. Here, you review your upcoming day, reviewing your planned routes, assessing the types of tasks you might encounter, and hoping that you have the correct equipment while ensuring the tasks are as straightforward as they seem. A sip from your tumbler and a brief glance up at the sky tells you today might be a rainy one. Without further ado, you climb into your truck and head off to your first assignment, all the while crossing your fingers for light traffic.
In your role as a field technician, you utilize complex skills and tools, as well as dedicate a lot of time to personalized, customer interaction. It's not unusual for unforeseen challenges to arise during your assignments, potentially leading to challenging discussions, delays in fulfilling other appointments, or even necessitating a return visit with the appropriate tools.
