  2. 2. A Field Service Application Case Study 02 Client Overview and Background The client is a large consumer electronics manufacturer based in Canada. Oracle E-Biz Platform from RapidValue is a suite of highly customizable Oracle modules available on mobile devices. The platform mobilizes the Oracle ERP systems located in client’s organization. The mobile client is developed using Oracle ADF technology, therefore it is compatible across mobile platforms. The platform includes pre-built applications like Field Services, Inventory & Purchase Order (PO) Receipt Management, Quote & Sales Order, HR & Expenses etc. For this client, RapidValue implemented an end-to-end native tablet field service application. We designed the user interface (UI), developed the application, integrated to their ERP systems and deployed the high quality application successfully on time. This application extends Oracle Field Service module and enables looking up - task list, service request, product information, customer details; update debrief and task status etc. © RapidValue Solutions
  3. 3. 03 Business Requirements and Challenges The client wanted to extend their Oracle based enterprise system for Field Service Management for reducing the turnaround time (to respond faster and be proactive to business requirements). The field service engineers needed to be able to create an ad-hoc service request during customer visit; update actual work status, spares, labor and tasks from the field. By following a manual and paper-based approach was getting too cumbersome, slow and error-prone which led to customer complaints. Often the field service engineers were unable to judge the service requirements nearby an existing site and they had to commute back to office only to know, that a service was due near the previous location. The field service engineers were not getting to know in real-time, spares availability, spares ordering from site, information on services due, daily service update and order status. The engineers also needed a knowledge repository such as a troubleshooting guide, to help them respond quickly to a fault reported from previous experience. Also, in case the field service engineers had to bill the customer for the services, they had to wait until they come back to base location and collated all the pending invoices. This led to piling up of customer pending receipts or even increased chances that invoice can be erroneous due to delayed entry. A Field Service Application Case Study © RapidValue Solutions
