Companies who operate onsite engineers are notoriously heavy on transactions and administration. Whether the service provided is under warranty, under contract or a chargeable break/fix call out, there is always a call to log, maybe stock to allocate or an Invoice to raise and that’s before we even start to consider how we tell the Engineers where to go or how they tell the office what they did, what they used and how long it took etc
The processes have notoriously been manual tasks, perhaps managed on spreadsheets or wall-card systems. Even if there was a system, there is no way it would talk to your back office Sage 50 or Sage 200, so at best the admin team would be looking at serious amount of re-keying.
