In the field service industry, understanding the latest technology is an absolute must! By 2018, studies predict that 70% of mobile workers will use a tablet or a hybrid device. Whether you’re hoping to connect to your mobile workforce with phone and tablet apps, improve your services with new technological techniques, or simply run a more efficient business with field service management software, there is so much that technology can do to bring success to field service companies.

But there’s always room to learn and improve when it comes to the constant new developments of the tech industry. Where can you go to stay on top of everything?

Here’s a list of Twitter accounts to follow to stay up to date with the latest developments in field service technology.

@FSNewsUK

Field Service News, a UK-based field service industry publication, runs an informative Twitter feed, updating followers frequently throughout the day. The website describes itself as “…the key resource for anyone operating a mobile workforce.”

Though they only tweet content from their site, it is still a very informative account to follow. The tweets are engaging, mixing opinions with statistics and facts. And the articles themselves are incredibly informative and useful for a field service professional. If you don’t mind only seeing content from their own site, then follow @FSNewsUK; they tweet many times a day, so you’re guaranteed not to miss the latest article!

@FTOnline

This is a well-rounded twitter account to follow. They post regularly throughout the day, sharing both their own content from Field Technologies Online, as well as content from other sites with similar topics.

If you’re looking for a Twitter account to follow that keeps you updated on all things field service software, this is the one for you! They cover field service subjects from mobile software to fleet management. They also post plenty of visuals, including some really great infographics.

@EuclidesTech

Euclides Technologies, “a full service, value-added reseller, and expert integrator of workforce management solutions,” posts on many different subjects relating to field service. They are a very interactive account, because not only do they post news from their site and others, but they even retweet posts of those they follow.

This is a good account to follow if you’re looking to get information on field service related topics, from utilities to solar energy. Plus, they’ll even read and engage with your tweets in return!

@Mobi_Enterprise

Mobile Enterprise mostly tweets their own content, but their own content is really good, in my opinion. They post articles multiple times a day to keep followers up-to-date on all things mobile apps, as well as retweet some good content from people they follow.

Follow this account if you want to know what’s happening in the wider world of mobile software and technology.

@TheSmartVan

Managed by ServiceMax, SmartVan keeps the world updated on how service techs can interact with technology, and they do it with a splash of entertainment.

@TheSmartVan shares their own articles and others’ articles on how technology is shaping the field service industry, and they also retweet many tweets about broader field service topics. They occasionally tweet some entertaining posts – for instance, a recent one details an amazing Christmas lights display and how it went up.

Hi Caroline,

Thanks for the inclusion and for your kind words!

We do occasionally retweet other accounts although that’d be mostly in UK time so you may miss it.

However, I’ll make it the team New Years resolution to do so more often!

Great list of accounts to follow here though and thanks for putting this together!

Cheers,

Great read. I was aware of quite a few of these accounts already, but the others are golden as well. As for any other accounts to follow? I’d like to put a shameless plug to the field service startup I work at: @TractSystems. Give it a chance, thanks!
