Using a field service app without Internet

Being offline. That’s the moment when you discover that your mobile FSM app is not as good as you thought. Turns out it cannot carry out any of its essential features without an online connection.

So, in the event that your field service software app is unable to connect to the internet, what are the options? You may want to consider having a paper-based system in place. However, this can be more time-consuming and challenging to manage. Especially as you continue working on other projects.

In the end, what you need is a dependable program with offline capabilities. In other words, a mobile FSM app that assists engineers and technicians in every aspect of their jobs. One with which you can accurately document each service visit, when your paper-based field service procedures are impeding your cash flow.


Being offline doesn’t mean not working

What is an offline mobile app for field service?

Apps that are exclusively available online update and synchronize data instantly. That’s great for technicians out in the field. But on the downside, this kind of apps will stop working as soon as there’s no connectivity.

Applications with offline functionality, on the other hand, are able to postpone data synchronization until they have an internet connection. And then, all the work you’ve been doing up until that moment is automatically synced with the office-based servers.
