Field Squared - Field Service Automation: Digitally Transforming Operations
Today’s businesses need to adopt field service automation that helps them manage their service, assets, and mobile workforce in a single platform. Gone are the days of implementing five different pieces of software to achieve visibility across the full spectrum of field operations. “Business process automation of simple to highly complex workflows is arguably the most impactful mechanism through which a company can achieve some of the highest levels of field service efficiency,” says Christopher James Camut, Director, President and CEO of Field Squared. “There is no logical reason to settle for anything less when there is automation software that grows with the company as the business needs to evolve.”
Field Squared is disrupting the field service software market with its field service automation platform. Within its platform, Field Squared enables complete digital transformation of field operations and workflows across a businesses’ field service management, enterprise asset management, and mobile workforce management needs. Including a fully offline capable mobile application for the field workforce, Field Squared provides real-time collaboration and messaging between the office and field, offers digital forms for field data capture, and automates workflows to drastically increase field efficiency.
“Field service management as we know it is dead. We know this because, with our software, we help companies automate workflows that go well beyond FSM to include their enterprise assets and mobile field workforce,” explains Camut. “We consistently hear service leaders looking for one solution to be the glue that connects their field service, assets, mobile workforce, and integrates back-office systems in a single platform. Field Squared is that glue.”

Extensible, interoperable, and completely configurable to unique business requirements, Field Squared seamlessly integrates with a near-endless list of back-office systems, such as GIS, ERP, CRM, analytics tools, and more. Across these disparate systems, workflows in Field Squared automate an orchestration of activities. From the simple case of automatically updating ERP records to the infinitely more complex simultaneous multiple-system updates, as well as automated alerts, assigning recurring schedules, generating reports, and escalation of approval sign-offs.
The company recently announced their partnership with Esri, the leading GIS software provider. The zero-effort integration to Esri enables customers to leverage their existing GIS investment in Esri’s ArcGIS software to power asset management and maintenance, field service, and automation processes from within Field Squared, including redlining asset updates from the field.
“We understand that field service businesses maintain multiple systems of record, be it ERP, CRM or other tools the office or the field employs. The sheer cost to manually update each system is staggering. Field Squared can be the system of record or the connection between the systems that makes the updates, and that’s why it’s so powerful,” says Camut.
As Field Squared describes it, any repetitive task—especially those prone to error or redundancy—should be automated. The end goals are to realize efficiency gains and to eliminate data inaccuracy. To this end, Field Squared is investing in industry-first innovative solutions to help customers increase accuracy, efficiency, and revenue. Future enhancements include an augmented reality (AR) view of assets.
