Systems united: Benefiting from different types of software all at once


Relying on different types of software is an important part of business today. As life in a field service business can get hectic at times, often with many employees doing different tasks, it makes sense to automate some of that work.


The way we depend on technology these days, how does the future look? And how can all these systems co-exist in peace? These topics will be discussed in this blog post.


Technology today: a helper or just making things complicated?


A few decades ago, or even still a few years ago, the role of technology is businesses was very different. With the emerging of the internet and the development of more and more powerful mobile phones, technology has become a bigger part of not just business but every part of our lives.


Some may ask, why do we need all this technology nowadays? In the old days, we got on just fine without it!


That is true to an extent – but that was also a different society we lived in back then. If a business were to abandon all the technology it could, it might just make it harder to thrive or even survive. The competition would still use technology for anything from improving customer service to estimating sales and storing information all in one place. Saying no to the help of automation, any business is bound to need more staff, time and other resources to make up for the difference.


Furthermore, the old days did not offer such opportunities for growth as now. With a bigger reach, companies can operate on a larger scale. So while some hope they could go to the ”good old days”, and while adapting new technology always takes some time, it is worth it. The pros way out the cons in the long run – sometimes you just have to be patient.


Software: the more the merrier or is less more?


Different businesses have different needs. Therefore it is understandable that they would also adopt different systems to fit those needs. Oftentimes, one piece of software cannot take care of everything. That is why many adopt more tools than one – but how do these systems work together?


When choosing your software mix, besides the company’s needs, their compatibility is important. If you cannot easily import and export data, the software might just make things harder instead of easing the workload. Also, while often businesses need more than one system, it is not beneficial to go overboard either. That is why it makes sense to adopt software that can take care of multiple tasks at once – like Field Service Management software.


Some systems have integrations with other software, while some simply work well with everything without official integration. The important question to ask is: can I easily transfer all the important information to my other systems which might need it? Are my systems united in a way that helps me and my company?


In conclusion, technology and mixing different types of software can give you an advantage, as long as they are chosen carefully and used correctly.
