Let’s be honest, we’re all resistant to change at some point or another. It’s in our nature. Humans desire familiarity, security, and above all else – predictability. We don’t like altering major day-to-day activities if we don’t have to. As the old saying goes, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” But, does the same phrase really hold true in the field service industry? Can you really thrive by playing it safe and clinging to old processes?
One of the most powerful tools in business also happens to be one of the most under utilized tools. This tool is data. Many companies see data as a nuisance, they think of all of the pointless filing and paperwork that must be done to keep the business running. The fact is, if you're not organizing and using your data correctly, it can become a nuisance.
Getting your tickets to the billing stage is a long and tedious process. Small errors throughout this process can result in lost tickets, incorrect data, or delayed payment. Disposal Software has a unique and secure process that gets you from ticketing to invoicing with ease.
Field service software is beneficial for oilfield companies of all shapes and sizes because it helps to maximize and scale operational activity. Today, most oilfield companies have at least one field service management system in place. Without one, operations, ticketing and invoicing becomes even more complicated than it already is. Whereas, if you have a field service software in place, the process of managing systems, services and customers becomes much more straightforward.
Tracking field signatures can be a major problem in the oilfield service industry. First a ticket gets lost, forgotten, or entered incorrectly, and then it's three more hours added to your day to get it straightened up. Small errors in the beginning of the ticketing process carry over into the invoicing and billing process, leaving your entire work flow a jumbled mess.
Many oil and gas companies manage their field service ticketing by hand. But with the rise of technology, digitalization has been on everyone’s mind. The industry is going through a major period of change. Producing better margins is the name of the game and digitalization can bring substantial improvements to field operations.
If digitalization is the remedy we’ve all been waiting for, then why have so few companies embraced its implementation? In today’s blog, we’ll explore this topic and how your oilfield company can strike a balance between digital and paper.
Getting your invoices out the door is the only way your company can receive payments for oilfield work. So, removing any bottlenecks in the process is an important way to improve cash flow.
