2-in-1 Field Service System & 'No-code' Application Platform

About Solarvista

Solarvista™ is the world's first '2-in-1' field service management system that is built within, and provided with, 'no-code' application builder technology. It streamlines your field service operations by providing ready-made but customisable features that work together to create intentful, easy-to-use, business process automation. Running in both web and on phones, tablets and PCs/laptops, it lets you do more, with less, whilst improving customer experience whilst enabling an agile business.

A complete field service management system...

Store all information you need to run your operation, including customers, sites, equipment/assets, products, inventory info, pricing policies, agreements/contracts, service levels, rosters, skills, qualifications, territories, responsibilities, knowledgebase, workflow definitions and much more.

Plan work using a calendar view for each operative viewable by agenda, timeline, day, week & month formats.

Bill easily as invoices are automatically calculated in real-time from your own rules and generated automatically for completed work or recurring fees from service agreements.

... or a custom field/workflow application.

Build custom field-oriented workflow applications with ‘no code’ required, in minutes not months.

Leverage our ready-made library for common business functions, such as SLA computation, parts tracking and billing.

Configure data sources with custom fields, labels etc., and configure workflows using simple flow-charts and setup activities/forms that must be completed at each stage.

Even better, a hybrid of both ready-made and custom...

Unique '2-in-1' architectural approach allows our richly featured field service management system to be customised to meet your exact needs.

By combining ready-made features with custom features built using the embedded 'no-code' technology, your business can achieve outstanding results in a rapid timeframe.

I'm overall satisfied with Solarvista what it delivers. There is always room for improvement but I believe it is one of the best product I've come across for data recording on site.

Pros

Solarvista is a great product due to the fact that can be used as a platform and is easily and largely configurable to the business needs. The integration within the company has happened gradually and the software has streamlined and made more efficient a lot of processes.

Cons

It is hard sometimes to get custom features required because the product development is quite ringfenced.

We have implemented Solarvista for a number of our customers. We've been able to structure and automate processes those customers thought would always be stuck in Excel. For me personally the API was a huge plus - few products in this industry have such a comprehensive API.

Pros

The flexibility and configurability of Solarvista is front and centre to its' appeal. No two field service companies have exactly the same processes so a platform that can be configured to match the businesses' processes is ideal, and worth investing the time in configuring.

Cons

The documentation focuses heavily on the "standard template" functionality of Solarvista, but the real strength of the product is in its' configurability. If this configurability were better documented admins could implement faster and be less dependent on Solarvista's support.

Pros

The features and functionality it offered. Appeared to be offer extensive integrated functionality.

Cons

The entire implementation process which led to us doubting it could ever be the field service management solution it aimed to be.

We are using Solar Vista to run the whole of our field and workshop service and repair functions. It allows us to track medical devices and their service hhistory.

Pros

The mobile app is very good, our engineers love the way it work so easily for them when out on the road.

Cons

The onboarding process was longer than we had expected, however we have developed a system that is extremely useful, so the time put in will benefit us in the long term.

From start to finish it has been a pleasure to work with the team at Solarvista.

Not only has Solarvista Live simplified and streamlined our field operations but it has provided a platform to deliver real, meaningful and measurable insights into our performance and productivity levels saving the wider account management teams valuable focus time that is better spent elsewhere rather than sifting through reports from multiple sources.

From our initial starting point through to where we are now, the guys at Solarvista have been very clear on where and what they can (and more importantly where they cannot) help us deliver, something that isn't usually found from a company who is trying to "sell you something".

For anyone thinking Solarvista is too good to be true, try it, you may just surprise yourself!

Pros

Running a large remote mobile workforce, we needed something that was easy to use, easy to work, quick to build and deploy but still be able to deliver in all areas of reporting functionality and pre determined deliverables set out within our clients CAFM systems as well as a platform which could connect easily to our own third party systems.

Not only was the design, build, integration and national roll out completed within a 3 month period but it was done without using conventional "IT" developers whilst still incorporating our multi client base with their very different and specific needs.

Training on the platform for our field operatives was condensed entirely in to a series of short training videos, narrated by myself, totalling 45 minutes. The field teams reported that the system was "fool proof" and "so easy to understand for a technophobe like me" which I think speaks for itself. Desk training was rolled out in videos which lasted just over an hour with very similar feedback.

Cons

There are no cons to speak of at this time. Not only have we delivered on our initial business set targets but we have a roadmap of where we are going with future developments and how we can use these to drive our business.
