Warranty Management

The ability to view, access, and automatically track customer asset warranty coverage and the data to facilitate manufacturer warranty claims is critical to running a profitable service organization. To help you seize control of warranty management, we’ve built an agile yet robust add-on that’s integrated with D365 for Field Service.

The warranty management module allows you to quickly and easily create, administer, process and track warranty coverage and activities against customer assets throughout their entire lifecycles. When warranty processes and data is automated, service is faster, invoices are more accurate, warranty claims are streamlined, customers are happier, and all service revenue is accounted for.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Field Service is helping many field service organizations automate and streamline processes to support growing service as a profit center.

Our time card module is a plug-and-play add-on that completely automates time card work flows in D365 for Field Service and allows you to manage workflows and track time spent on work orders, administrative functions, and paid time off across all devices—including mobile. The solution simplifies payroll and other time tracking processes right out of the box. There’s no customization necessary—saving you money and speeding time to value.
