- Visualization & Collaboration Tools –Astea’s cutting-edge HTML5 mobile solution has been leveraged by global organizations to increase engineer productivity, reduce costs and improve customer satisfaction. This release continues to build on that philosophy with optimized user navigation; the ability for a mobile user to work from multiple devices with complete synchronizations between devices; visualization tools to easily support self-dispatch; live chat connecting the field engineer with the back office; centralized parts order status view; and full bi-directional Microsoft Outlook synchronization. Astea’s mobile solution provides the level of flexibility necessary that makes it easy for organizations to modify and adapt the solution, for different user profiles or businesses, without requiring development skillsets or adding additional costs.
- Your Service Platform, Your Way – A couple of years ago, Astea introduced an innovative customization tool that gives organizations the control they needed, without requiring coding, while still being able to take advantage of the latest and greatest Astea Alliance feature updates. With Astea Alliance 12.0, there are added capabilities to give non-technical users even more “do it yourself” tools, while Astea’s framework actively governs these customizations making it easy to see what is custom and what is standard.
- Drive Proactive Support and Continuous Process Improvement – With Astea Alliance 12.0, there are more decision making visualization tools accessible from any device, to easily and quickly leverage insightful information for optimal process improvements, productivity and customer satisfaction.
- Easily Manage and Support a Company’s Entire Service Ecosystem – When it comes to optimizing a company’s service ecosystem, visibility and control become mission critical requirements to manage and track all of the people, internal and external to the organization, and processes that have an impact on the overall service experience for the customer. Astea has added a new customer satisfaction tracking capability to make it easy to collect as well review customer feedback at any time. Additionally, Astea continues to add enhancements to its scheduling optimization solution, leveraging the latest Microsoft technologies, to ensure optimal operational performance.
