Alternative Announces Field Service App Offering for NetSuite Cloud ERP Users
Through its partnership with Klugo, Alternative will offer an integrated mobile app for field service management
January 8, 2015 – Aliso Viejo, CA: Alternative Technology Solutions, the leading ERP and CRM solution and service provider that brings the best of the cloud to manufacturers, today announced that it will offer a field service application for NetSuite Cloud ERP users.
“As we continue to bring the best of the cloud to manufacturers and distributors, delivering the best cloud application available for field service is an important part of Alternative’s strategy,” said Vivian Keena, Alternative CEO.
Built by Alternative partner Klugo, NextService is an application built on the NetSuite SuiteCloud platform. “We’re excited to partner with Alternative and add to its portfolio of best-of-breed cloud solutions for manufacturers,” explained Lucas Vear, General Manager at Klugo.
NextService offers robust as-built and as-maintained equipment tracking, case management, call scheduling with mobile dispatch, and data collection for both labor and materials.“As a native NetSuite application, it’s extremely fast to implement and because it’s a cloud tool, the maintenance costs are very low,” added Vear.
“Not only is field service a critical business piece for many manufacturers and OEMs, it’s something that by its very nature is completed out in the field and away from a computer,” said Aaron Korsen, Alternative EVP Sales and Marketing. “Utilizing a cloud application that is easy to use from anywhere on any device helps companies deliver better customer and equipment service.”
The addition of NextService is a key part of Alternative’s evolution into a solutions company. “We built Alternative by delivering services through a highly-skilled team of experts,” explained Keena. “While we continue to provide exemplary services, our growth plans are focused around bringing the best cloud solutions to businesses. Adding NextService for NetSuite is a great way to expand our solutions portfolio and meet another key business need for our customers.”
