Tough Market conditions have made companies to focus on increasing Aftermarket Revenues, apart from revenue through parts sales, service and reorders. Thus the need to look for Aftermarket software tools. Even though several systems were deployed at a Global Engineering gaint, the retail side of Aftermarket was not adequately addressed. Its service management was facing challenges in managing customers call-registration & monitoring, field service force management, field equipment management, pro-active services and more. Quest Informatics, the integrated Aftermarket company\'s FSM (Field Service Management) was a silver bullet to above challenges. Now, that Global Engineering gaint boasts round-the-clock service desk availability.

\"Our clients want us to improve their Aftermarket service revenue and enhance their customer satisfaction.
