News Facts

To help customers increase productivity, improve customer satisfaction and drive cost savings, Oracle today announced the latest release of Oracle Mobile Field Service and Oracle Field Service.
Part of the Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.1.2, these latest offerings deliver new personalization features for a mobile experience tailored to meet specific business needs, as well as improved flexibility and control through Oracle Mobile Laptop and Oracle Mobile Handheld.
Oracle Mobile Field Service introduces Oracle Mobile Query Framework, an open and standards-based way for organizations to extend their mobile store-and-forward platforms with new capabilities such as knowledge base searches, email receipts to customers and service history reports.
Oracle Advanced Scheduler features a new, open interface to integrate real-time location data and mapping capabilities. Managers can easily locate field technicians to schedule emergency jobs immediately and provide proactive customer service through alerts and notifications if a technician is running late.
Now with the certified integration of the Trimble® GeoManager™ Mobile Resource Management (MRM) solution, Oracle Field Service can provide visibility to real-time technician location on a map and message mobile workers for greater field productivity. The Trimble GeoManager solution also enables the reduction of fuel and emissions while providing data for driver safety and vehicle maintenance programs.
New enhancements in Oracle TeleService and Oracle Email Center, including automatic service requests from incoming emails, streamline request creations and field technician dispatches in order to reduce customer incident call times and optimize scheduling and routes.
Oracle Field Service introduces a distance-based spare part search-and-order function that breaks out of the conventional supply chain mold. By mapping local or remote warehouses and other nearby field technicians with real-time location data, field technicians can obtain stock faster and address customer issues accurately in order to improve service and reduce costs.
Trimble is a Gold level partner in the Oracle® PartnerNetwork.
