Are you a service company just getting started on the Field Nation platform? Or a business looking to optimize your presence on the marketplace? Either way, this blog is for you!
Read on to learn four practical ways to optimize your Field Nation account. These tips will help boost your reputation with technicians and streamline your internal processes.
Before accepting a work order, technicians want to know what it’s like to work with your company. That’s why it’s essential to communicate your standard policies, procedures, and instructions. By sharing these policies up front, you can ensure consistency and prevent questions and issues.
