Field Service in the early decades of the twenty-first century has become an increasingly tricky beast to tame. Customer expectations are hurtling forward at breakneck speed to what some companies view as almost impossible standards to reach. The customer of today is not only better informed than ever before, but via the widespread amplification of social media, more powerful also.

In this series, run in partnership with Localz, we look at precisely what these new challenges of modern field service are and how your organisation can adapt and thrive in this brave new world. Part one in the series explored the concept of Customer Expectations 4.0 and in part two we discussed a new approach to FSM systems and then in part three we will take a look at three examples of companies embracing 'Uberization."  Now in the final feature in this series we hear from Localz CEO Tim Andrew and explore why happy engineers equals happy customers.
