How to Get Started with Connected Field Service

Join Copperberg and PTC for an exclusive webinar looking into Connected Field Service. We have some fantastic speakers with our very own Thomas Igou moderating the session.

Session description:
The Internet of Things is revolutionizing service. Smart Connected products enables manufacturers to connect to their installed base of machines, directly monitoring performance, receiving early alerts and fixing problems remotely or dispatching field engineers and parts early to avoid mission critical production disruptions. Outages and downtime are minimized, calls to the service desk become obsolete, and most importantly, the customer views your product and your service as exemplary. Smart, connected products also create the possibility for entirely new offerings, where the outcome not the physical product—is what the customer buys. This is what many call “servitization” or “outcome-based service.

But how do you get started? Where do you prioritise? What is your first step in the journey to realising value?

Listen to Martin Gilday, Senior Vice President of Global Service at Elekta , and Michael Anderson, Senior Director of Service Lifecycle Management at PTC, in a discussion about Connected Field Service.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How to get started with Connected Field Service
  • How cost for Downtime, Spare Parts and Labour can be reduced
  • How to realize value and demonstrate ROI
  • Plus much more!







Abstract for the Elekta presentation:

The Internet of Things is revolutionising service and ushering in a new era of possibilities. How do you get started? Where do you prioritise? What is your first step in the journey to realising value? During this session you’ll hear an exciting, real world example from Elekta sharing their strategic approach to capitalise on the IoT opportunities in the Medical device industry using PTC and ServiceMax technology.

Abstract for the PTC presentation:

The world of Field Service is changing. How can your organization change with it? Your customers want expanded service offerings, especially outcome based offerings like Product as a Service. How can your service organization utilize the Industrial Internet of Things to mitigate the risk inherent to these offerings while providing your customers with superior service? During this session, Michael Anderson with PTC will discuss the service capabilities of connected equipment and how they can improve your service operations, allow you to confidently offer outcome based service offerings and ultimately improve customer satisfaction.
