AyaNova tips: Never lose a part request again

It is very common to not want a lot of overhead tied up in on-hand inventory.

That is your money just sitting there.

So it is very common that if a specific part is needed to complete service for a customer, you order the part specifically when needed.

Common issues can arise when ordering parts as needed:

  • does purchasing know it needs to be ordered?
  • has it been ordered?
  • when was this ordered?
  • from which company?
  • eta?
  • has it been received?
  • who received it?
  • where did it get put?
  • how come I wasn’t told it was in?
  • who is supposed to be installing this?

That’s where AyaNova’s part request and inventory features will help you! Continue reading AyaNova tips: Never lose a part request again

What privacy do you owe your customers?

lrgscreenshot We do NOT sell any of your contact information. Period.

Apparently “data consultants” are selling customer contact information from those that have trialed ServiceMax or have used or are using ServiceMax.

With the announcement that “GE Digital announced today it was buying ServiceMax, a cloud-based field service management company, for $915 million” we have received a number of cold calls and emails from “data consultants” who are selling the contact information from service companies that are using ServiceMax and/or have trialed ServiceMax, as these data consultants expect a number of ServiceMax customers to jump ship due to the sale.

Customize AyaNova for YOUR company’s needs

BLOGSERVICENo two service companies, regardless of who/what they service, have the exact same processes, have the exact same terminology, have the exact same tasks that need to be accomplished and documented – so therefore I wouldn’t expect them to use the exact same software.

Preventative maintenance: no more forgetting!

Preventive MaintenanceA tire shop called me the other day:

“hey, I found a sticky note here that you wanted to replace your tires by December”

Besides being past that date when I wanted these done, I too has initially forgotten. But then one of the old tires blew out. So I bought new tires at a different shop that was closest to where the blow out happened.

That sticky note caused a number of losses for that shop.

That service company lost out on the sale of 4 tires.
That service company lost out on the labor charges to install those tires.
And they have lost me as a future customer. Continue reading Preventative maintenance: no more forgetting!
