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.
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!
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.

Euclides Technologies, “a full service, value-added reseller, and expert integrator of workforce management solutions,” posts on many different subjects relating to field service.

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.
