Philips Lighting Field Force Automation Application (FFA) is an iOS application for Philips Service Technicians to capture field service information in real time or offline using mobile phones. The captured field service information is transferred immediately to back-end systems through wireless connectivity (Wi-Fi, 3G/4G with GPS). This instant capture of service information reduces time delays, avoids manual double entry data errors and enhances field force productivity. This field service force applicationprovides a simple, usable, user interface for the mobile, and data transfer of the information captured at Customer Site.
