NSC’s new SmartTeam App

A bespoke field services app designed specifically for field engineers to provide customers with a single point of contact throughout the lifecycle of a project or activity.

What is the NSC SmartTeam app?

It is a bespoke field services app designed specifically for field engineers to provide customers with a single point of contact, improved transparency and a better quality of service.

The app is available to customers on Android, iPhone and Web and uses Geo-location to track the arrival and status of their field engineer, delivering advanced and transparent communication with progress updates for all stakeholders.

What are the benefits of the app? How does this help our customers?

The app hosts real time information in a single source that helps customers and field engineers make the most of their time, prompting increased collaboration to deliver projects more successfully.

We developed the SmartTeam™ app with everyone in mind – our customers, our field engineers and our Activity Assurance team. The app will simultaneously support our Activity Assurance team, who are responsible for tracking and helping our engineers during engagements, while allowing both the field engineers and our customers complete transparency of location and status – wherever they are – anytime, anywhere.

Features

Live chat

The chat feature allows the FE and customer (and all project stakeholders where required) to communicate in real time, helping to avoid problems or delays. Everything from small questions about access and parking to major unexpected changes can now be communicated in real time to all stakeholders the activity in the app.

Features

Map tracking

FE map tracking enables all observers of the activity to see exactly when the FE is due on-site allowing everyone involved to plan the activity start with confidence. For example, if there are unexpected traffic delays this will be visible to everyone observing – no more wondering where the FE is.

Push notifications ensure all engineers are reminded of their scheduled activity and any last-minute updates or changes. The transparency of engineers’ location and status provided by the app removes the need for manual updates.
