Several tools and features of SpiceCRM such as Service Calls, Call Center Integration or E-Mail-Integration offer different ways of receiving requests from the customers. All new support cases received in CRM as Queues can be assigned and forwarded to the accountable team in the form of CRM Tickets. Service Calls and Tickets in the system are classified by a standard three-level category tree. For a better overview and a qualified individual customer service, new support requests (complaint, issue or incident) are tracked in a customer, contact or account, so the Service Team can charge current and previous issues to the respective customer.

All products that have been sold to customers, have been installed on a customer site and have been put into use can be registered in SpiceCRM. The Service Manager has a complete overview of all product details of equipment installed at the customer’s site (date of manufacture, of purchase, of installation and end of a warranty), so he can easily track the equipment serial numbers. Integrated Google Search and Google Maps allow to capture and plan routes for the scheduled maintenance services. The scheduled appointments can be readily assigned to a technician, and then the scheduled date will appear in a technician’s calendar.
The service contracts required for the maintenance date can also be created in SpiceCRM.

Automate service maintenance tasks and routines
SpiceCRM allows to create service orders or convert already saved Sales Documents and Service Tickets into the Orders. The service order contains detailed information about the planned maintenance services, including a list of all required materials (spare parts) and efforts. When executing orders, the technician can capture actual efforts and materials used (Confirmation). All images taken in open order are automatically uploaded to CRM and added to the service order. As soon as the order has been completed, it can be digitally signed by the customer as well as converted to PDF and sent directly to the customer.
Service Planner as a special feature in Service Manager supports route planning for the technicians. It is possible to pick a date and set an estimated duration for each order. The estimated distance and travel time will be automatically determined based on the maintenance location as well as the technician’s base and also set to the order.
