In circumstances where authorised technicians carry out necessary duties at specified places. Typically, these professionals travel to customers' homes to complete tasks like system or equipment installation, repair, maintenance, or removal. To a wide range of clients, competent, specialised, and frequently proprietary services must be provided by field service people.

Field Service Management (FSM) encompasses various essential functions in the field. Skilled specialists ensure the proper installation of field equipment, providing onboarding, addressing inquiries, and offering guidance on equipment usage. Maintenance tasks, including corrective, preventive, and proactive measures, extend the operational life of off-site equipment. In the event of unexpected equipment failures, field service staff promptly perform repairs, also known as "break fix" solutions. Additionally, field technicians handle the careful removal and transfer of non-functional or outdated equipment, as well as the deployment of advanced replacements. FSM also involves scheduling and dispatching professionals with specialized skills to perform tasks beyond equipment-related services, such as home healthcare visits.

In the realm of Field Service Management (FSM), organizations face various obstacles in delivering successful and satisfying field services. These challenges include the need for multiple trips to address the same issue due to a low percentage of problems being fixed on the first visit. Negative customer experiences during field service interactions can lead to customer dissatisfaction. Staff changes, such as the retirement of expert technicians and difficulties in hiring skilled successors, along with concerns about staff retention and increased reliance on external contractors, pose additional hurdles. The lack of comprehensive information on customer-owned assets makes effective maintenance and preventing unscheduled downtime challenging. Managing, leading, supporting, and effectively tracking tasks related to sending out field technicians is another key aspect that organizations must address.
