|BlueTech LLC Announces FieldRanger® wGPS™ Integration with Intuit QuickBooks® 2006|
Empowering the Field Service Industry to Simplify Business Processes and Improve Efficiency
Portland, Ore. – Nov. 4, 2005 - BlueTech LLC, a leader in the development of technology tools to improve the field service industry, announces the integration of its newest product release, FieldRanger® wGPS™, with QuickBooks® 2006, the nation’s leading small business management software. FieldRanger wGPS allows field technicians to track work orders on mobile phones, like the Palm® Treo 650, and send updates back to the office wirelessly to reduce paperwork and human error, while improving overall customer service.
“FieldRanger’s primary goal is to introduce valuable business solutions to an industry of small to medium-sized businesses that might otherwise assume such solutions are out of their price range,” states Joshua Blank, BlueTech’s Vice President of Business and Technology Development. “Extending QuickBooks, the most popular accounting package, into the field allows our customers to track time and work order information on their mobile phones while reducing driving, avoiding costly paperwork, and improving cash flow.”
FieldRanger wGPS saves time and money, simplifies dispatching, and helps manage field-based employees and work orders. Customers remain connected to their mobile workforce without visiting their job sites. While service technicians receive work orders, track time and capture signatures in the field, office-based employees and dispatchers can easily track their field worker locations using the assisted global positioning system (aGPS) integrated into mobile phones and cellular networks. This allows customers to spend less time managing their jobs and employees and more time growing their businesses.
With one click, customers can send work orders from FieldRanger wGPS directly into QuickBooks, and have the option to add work orders as new Customer Jobs in QuickBooks or match to existing Customer Jobs. By tightly integrating with customers’ existing accounting processes and software, FieldRanger is able to deliver astonishing return on investment and drastically improve business efficiency and customer service.
FieldRanger is a leader in the development of technology tools to improve the field service industry. Since its inception in 2003, FieldRanger has adopted proven technology advances to better serve dispatchers and field-based employees, with a primary focus on trade-related industries. By demonstrating a 20:1 return on investment, FieldRanger has garnered awards and praise from the NAVTEQ Global LBS Challenge and Mobilize Enterprise Magazine.
