Take your whole team to your next customer visit

Every time a service technician conducts a customer call in the field, they need all the answers (and parts) to get the job done. But what happens when they don’t? Do they start calling around to other techs? Or worse, email someone, then wait (and waste customers’ time) until they get an answer? Imagine if they could bring the whole team with them to each customer visit. Watch Zinc's on-demand webinar and learn how an entire services organization can benefit from staying connected on one communication platform.
