ERP for Field Operations

Do you have real-time visibility into the profitability and progress of all of your field service projects?

Are all aspects of your field operations managed in one solution or in multiple, disconnected solutions?

Are you certain you can have the right people in the right place at the right time to serve your customers?

The growth of field service companies presents a unique opportunity for leveraging cloud-based solutions.  The wide variety and size of clients and vendors along with razor thin margins, and a highly fragmented market have resulted in a new way to achieve economies of scale through technology.

Cloud technology solutions offer you a way to achieve real-time communication and profitability management with your field operations at a price point that is much lower than in the past.  Can your company achieve the transformation?

The most profitable businesses are also the most efficient. When you spend too much time tracking billable hours, trying to find information to make strategic decisions, or accounting for every project detail, profitability suffers. With Microsoft Dynamics AX or Dynamics 365 for Operations, you'll have real-time visibility into your business operations to quickly track all aspects of your projects, like billable hours, profitability, price management, scheduling, and resource utilization. Your business can run more efficiently, so you will have more time to spend on what really matters - your clients.

​With Microsoft Dynamics AX or Dynamics 365 for Operations and Ellipse Solutions, you gain:

  • Seamless, low cost communications with field operations
  • Real-time updates on key job cost and financial management data.
