What are Field Service Key Performance Indicators that Matter the Most!
Field Service Business Owner KPIs
A Service Level Agreement document outlines the deliverables and level of service that one party expects from the other. Ideally, the more you hit the laid-out performance benchmark for your business, the better.
Employee and Customer Retention
Finding potential good customers can cost businesses more than keeping them. Same is the case with employees. Rather than replacing them, you can focus on retaining employees. Putting strategies in place to retain loyal customers and good talent with the organisation can be one of the key field service metrics for your business.
