Field Service is all about the tasks that businesses do, like setting up equipment, fixing it when it breaks, and regular checks to make sure everything's running smoothly. It's super important because it helps companies give their customers fast and reliable service. Field Sales, which is about selling directly to the customer, is kind of like a cousin to Field Service.

One cool tool to help with this is Dynamics 365 Field Service. It’s like a computer program that stores all the information in one place so businesses can work better and make their customers happier.
To make things even better, we have MappyField 365 for you. It’s like a helper for Dynamics 365 Field Service. In this guide, we’re going to talk about how these tools work together and how they can help businesses do their jobs even better. Let’s get started!
Smart Ways to Manage Sales Areas with Maps
Imagine having a big map on your wall. Now, you want to draw different areas where you have to sell your products. That’s what we call Territory Management. You can do this on your Dynamics 365 with the help of MappyField 365. Our tool ensures you have the best sales areas, no matter what business you are in.
The territory management feature allows businesses to distribute workloads among field representatives evenly. Businesses can realign boundaries by analyzing customer locations and service requests within territories to ensure every representative is adequately utilized.
MappyField 365 provides insights into which territories have higher service requests, allowing businesses to allocate more resources or representatives to high-demand areas. Every business is unique. MappyField 365 allows for territories to be defined based on various criteria, be it geographical, by product line, customer type, or service request frequency.
Making Sure Everyone's Where They Need to Be
After setting up your sales areas, you need to make sure your team knows where to go and when. That is where planning comes in. If you've ever used a map app to find the quickest way to a place, you know how helpful it can be. For people in field service who travel a lot, finding the best route is super important. MappyField 365 can help you avoid traffic and tolls and make trips quicker and safer.
Instead of planning routes from one point to another, MappyField 365 allows field service professionals to input multiple stops and find the quickest way to navigate through all of them. This helps in scheduling multiple appointments in a single trip, maximizing efficiency.
As we know, field service is unpredictable. Appointments can get canceled, or emergency calls might come in. But with MappyField 365, routes can be dynamically adjusted on the go, ensuring that field reps can cater to urgent tasks without compromising on their pre-scheduled visits.
Moreover, every field representative might have specific preferences, like avoiding toll roads or highways. MappyField 365 allows customized route preferences, ensuring every trip aligns with the rep’s comfort and priorities.
Find what you are looking for
The POI feature stands as a vital asset for field service agents constantly navigating diverse routes. This tool is much more than just a location finder—it's designed to amplify the efficiency of agents on the move.
For starters, it helps them pinpoint essential services like gas stations, eateries, or medical facilities on their route. Instead of making wide detours, agents can plan direct, fuel-efficient paths that include these necessary stops.
In unplanned scenarios, like emergencies, having real-time data on the nearest hospitals or repair shops can be invaluable. Beyond the basics, the feature proves handy in enhancing client interactions. Imagine an agent suggesting a well-rated coffee shop nearby for a meeting, using MappyField.
Its customizable nature means agents can prioritize their specific needs, ensuring they're always equipped with the most necessary information.
MappyField 365 is much more than a traditional mapping tool, it is a comprehensive solution designed to revolutionize the way field service agents operate. From suggesting time-saving paths to the robust capabilities of territory management this tool truly understands the essence of fieldwork. The added advantage of the POI feature makes the agent's journey not only efficient but also well-resourced and informed.
