Metso Outotec’s Field Service offering meets customers’ maintenance, repair and refurbishment needs and supports customers in maximizing the performance of their equipment throughout its lifecycle. Metso Outotec has an extensive footprint of more than 3000 field service professionals and 140 service locations close to customer operations.
Uniform customer experience through new Field Service platform
The new platform unifies and simplifies the way field service operations are planned, dispatched and executed. Operating on one platform helps to deliver a consistent high-quality service to customers both onsite and online, while improving efficiency and transparency in internal operations.
For customers, it offers a more uniform experience through the digital connection. Information about ongoing actions during a site visit is shared reliably and in real time. The customer can review and confirm the completed work order on their mobile device. The technician can create a preliminary site visit report for the customer immediately onsite and a full technical report later.
In addition, the digital inspection application captures inspection information electronically and supports service technicians in performing equipment inspections for fast onsite reporting of possible critical issues.
Furthermore, the platform allows excellent remote connectivity between service technicians and customers. In addition to remote assistance and video, the use of advanced technologies, such as augmented reality (AR), is now enabled. This supports Metso Outotec’s sustainability targets by reducing unnecessary travel and increases the company’s ability to solve problems from their first service intervention.
