What challenges do you share with your peers in the field service industry? Which solutions have been successful for you? What trends and priorities are coming down the line for Field Service professionals? What can you share with the network to help contribute to collaborative learning and the future of ServiceMax solutions?

If you can answer any of those questions, you should definitely join our upcoming ServiceMax user groups:

Las Vegas User Group​ and Boston User Group​!

What is it?

We wanted a space where ServiceMax users could come together, discuss their solutions, ideas, problems, and learn from each others' experience. Thus, our user group program was born. These sessions are full day programs featuring customer-led discussions, table topics, and a chance to meet and engage with various ServiceMax teams like product, education, and customer success.

User group themes vary every year, depending on the industry, our customers, and our product. This year we are focusing on the customer lifecycle. Topics will include:

  • Customer Workshop: Best practice throughout the stages of implementing successful programs that combine technology, people and strategy
  • Outcomes and KPIs: Universal 9 metrics and how they relate to various end user personas and strategic objectives
  • Organizational Change Management: Managing change across your people, process and technology, including unifying roles, centralizing processes, redefining processes, leveraging tenured FSEs to provide remote support.
  • Implementation and Roll Out: The pros and cons of POC (Proof of Concept), a Pilot Program, a Global Template
  • User Experience and Adoption: There are varying process flows for work orders and explore the options in the SFM set up to drive easy usage and better adoption

Among these topics will be customer-led conversations and product team Q & A's, and of course a provided lunch. (Yum!)

This is a customer-exclusive event. If you manage or work closely with your company's ServiceMax platform, we want you there. Our past attendee types included superusers who are close to the field service teams, business owners who are influencing the strategy, training programs, and coordination of field service teams, and IT experts who coordinate technology and human resources for success.

Over the last few years, we've had over 50 customer logos represented from various industries, so there's no doubt that you'll find someone with similar experience as you.

Many Maximize Las Vegas attendees were captivated by Gene Kranz and Jim Lovell's American space age story, thus I'm so excited to share that astronaut Dr. Michael Foale is onboard to speak at Maximize Berlin! Here's a snippet of Sarah Lloyd Parry's blog featured on Field Service Digital:

On June 25, 1997, British-born NASA astronaut Dr. Michael Foale was aboard the MIR space station when it collided with a seven-ton cargo ship the size of a bus. Unaware to Dr. Foale, while his Russian colleagues were practising a docking procedure, Russian Mission Control ordered the automatic docking system to be switched off, based on concerns its radar might interfere with the ship’s visual monitor. The result was catastrophic, creating in the worst collision in the history of manned space flight.

Leaking oxygen, the MIR began spinning out of control at the rate of about one degree a second with a puncture in one of the modules, causing life threatening decompression. Dr. Foale and his colleagues worked feverishly to repair the damage over a critical six-hour period — with no power.

Dr. Foale is no stranger to the challenges of repairing equipment in space. With 22 hours of space walking time logged, he says his biggest challenge is the size of the responsibility.

Screen Shot 2017-10-05 at 11.05.45 AM.png

We are fortunate enough to have Dr. Foale as our keynote speaker at this year’s Maximize Europe 2017 customer conference in Berlin. Dr. Foale will be discussing what it’s like to deal with the unique scenario of equipment failure in space, the critical balance of when to trust human instinct over emergency machine operating procedures, and the leadership qualities, training and team dynamics required to overcome such problems on a space ship he likens to an oily smelling cluttered garage, akin to working in someone’s esophagus.

To read the Sarah's full blog post about Dr. Foale's phenomenal experience, visit Field Service Digital. To hear him in person, secure your spot for Maximize Berlin today! We hope to see you there.

205,000 miles.

That’s how far Apollo 13 was from earth on April 13, 1970, when an oxygen tank exploded, crippling the Service Module upon which the Command Module had depended. Despite well-documented hardships caused by limited power, freezing temperatures, a shortage of potable water, and the critical need to make fast repairs, the Apollo 13 crew returned safely to earth just days later.

As someone who grew up fascinated by the NASA space program, I am thrilled to share that Jim Lovell and Gene Kranz of the Apollo 13 mission will be keynote speakers at our annual customer event, Maximize 2017, this September in Las Vegas where they will share their stories of leadership, perseverance and competence.

Screen Shot 2017-08-30 at 4.12.39 PM.png

The story of Apollo 13 is an extreme example of field service where “the machine” had to be fixed and decisions needed to be made quickly in a life-threatening situation. The majority of field service projects are not quite so dramatic, but they are still critical to their industries.

There are tens of millions of field service technicians around the world who maintain billions of machines that have a profound impact on our lives — in our homes, at our work, at our hospitals and cities and airports. Literally everywhere.

Screen Shot 2017-08-30 at 4.13.41 PM.png

Who are these everyday heroes? Are you one of them? I'd love hear your stories in the comments below, on Twitter (@dyarnold), or at Maximize 2017, the most valuable field service event in the industry. Review the Maximize agenda and register at www.servicemax.com/maximize. I look forward to seeing you there!

Maximize is around the corner, which means a customer user group is too! The conversation will take place Monday, September 18 from 1 PM to 6 PM at our Maximize Las Vegas event.

Do you know what a user group is?

A user group is a group of people with a similar set of goals, ideas, and interests. In this case, our user group attendees are managing the ServiceMax platform, leading teams, and looking to plan for the future. This session is meant to be a time where customers can talk about their experience, their concerns, and their new ideas. Our user groups are customer-led (and customer-exclusive). After Maximize, groups of customers meet online, like here in the community, and in person throughout the year.

Here are a few user groups you can join: East Coast User Group West Coast User GroupEMEA User Group​. There will be a specific group for all those who join our session in Las Vegas!

We hope you'll take this opportunity to join other ServiceMax customers on day one of Maximize for a half-day program of collaboration and sharing. For more detail on the agenda, check out the schedule below.

We will also be hosting a user group with a similar agenda in Maximize Berlin for customers who are attending that event.

I am the Regional Marketing Manager for Southern Europe.  Deirdre Yee interviewed me, she wanted me to share a little bit about myself, my role at ServiceMax, and our work in Southern Europe.

I live in Milan, Italy. My favorite thing about my city might be the food - I love tortellini in brodo. I also love travelling with friends. New York is one of my favorite places; to me, it feels like the center of the world.

I’ve spent my career in marketing, and spent most of my time focused on regional work in Southern Europe. I would be happy to share my knowledge about doing business in this region with ServiceMax Community members. I will post updates with great new assets, events, and news regularly, here in the community.

I was pleased to help with Technologies du Field Service du futur, a wonderful event we hosting in September 2016 in Paris, with a great agenda of content, including 5 top priorities for Field Service Teams in 2016, Connected Field service, powered by IoT, Augmented reality in field service, and achieving excellence through our Field Service maturity matrix assessment tool. Below a picture of the event.

ptc event.jpg

We also joined the IoT World Congress in Barcelona in October, a great event for IoT; full of business managers, CTOs, CMOs, technical experts who are interested in IoT Solutions. We met great contacts across Manufacturing, Energy, Utilities, Transportation, Healthcare, and technology organizations.

One event I am looking forward to next year is the SPS Italian Automation event in Parma in May. Focused on industrial automation, and growing quickly, this conference is great for manufacturing companies and the content will be important for field service teams in Italy. It is very important for us to expand coverage for new markets, to represent field service for customers from these areas.

My customers in Southern Europe, they are interested in the technology and understanding how our software works, how it can be flexible for their needs. On the other hand they are focused on ROI and how it can improve their customer’s experience.

One of my goals is to deliver information for different roles, particularly for Southern Europe. There can be many stakeholders in the process, from the CFO, IT team, line of business, Services team. Each person has needs, has questions, and wants to understand more. All may be involved in the decision making process and I want to help address their interests and questions.

Here are some recent assets for you or your team members in Southern Europe or who speak Spanish or French.

ServiceMax y PTC anuncian Servicios de Campo Conectados (Spanish subtitles)

This is a video where ServiceMax and PTC present their co-joint offer on Connected Field Services. Moreover you can see how IoT technology will be very important in the upcoming years, and also how McKinley Equipment has already started using it.

ServiceMax démonstration - Le rôle du field service (French audio)

Improving field service operations requires a complete understanding of and visibility into the complexities of field service delivery. It starts when your customer purchases a product or service from you, and extends through delivery processes such as work order management, and finally to analytics to understand the business as well as ultimately deliver predictive service. Watch this demo video to see how ServiceMax has focused on building deep technology for the entire field service delivery chain.

  • Are you based in Southern Europe?
  • Do you have teams in Southern Europe?
  • What do you provide for those teams?
  • What are the cultural considerations you take?

I’m interested to collaborate with members who are doing business in my region, and eager to provide more assets to help with your field service evaluation.

  • What documents, assets, webinars, etc would you like to see in Italian, Spanish, French, or Portuguese?

Thanks!

Mauro

Earlier this month, I attended MaxLive 2014 Paris, our first major ServiceMax customer event held in Europe.  It was an amazing event, filled with extremely interactive customer session, user group meetings, an inaugural CSO Summit and more. 

One of the highlights of the event included a customer panel, in which several top-notch ServiceMax customers and Dr. Howard Lightfoot, a thought-leader in the service industry spoke about their experiences in non-field service roles, and field service's impact on their individual roles. 

One of the most notable observations of the panel is that not one person had 'Service' or 'Field Service' in their title.

The customer panelists  included Vincent Lore, Director of Business Development at Videlio IEC, Vincent Dériot, CIO of Neopost, and Damian Hudson, Manager of Information Systems at SPP Pumps.  The overarching message of the panel was that field service has had a ripple-effect impact on the entire organization, and not just on the service side.  Information Technology, Finance, and Business Development are now brought to the table where they can show the influence of service on the organization, including generating revenue, closing service calls faster, invoicing customers in hours instead of weeks and more. 

Have you had similar experiences at your organization? 

What is the most significant change you've experienced either on the service or non-field service side?
