Why Introduce Field Service Lightning?

March 5, 2017

With any growing business, it’s getting harder and harder to exceed customer expectations. While having a user-friendly website, a variety of channels to reach your clients, and experienced support agents are all proper business processes, these don’t really matter if the overall customer experience goes something like this…

It’s your Mom’s birthday. It’s 7 PM. The present you ordered for her was supposed to be delivered at 3 PM. You’re going to be late for her birthday party because you have to wait for the delivery. You contact customer support. They say the courier has lots of orders today and is now stuck in a traffic jam. They have no idea what time your package will arrive. What do you do? Do you stay and wait for the package and miss your Mom’s birthday party? Or do you go to the party and miss the delivery?
