What can my techs do when the mobile app is offline?

Internet access is pretty much everywhere, but sometimes your field techs may find themselves in an area where they are unable to access a data connection. For example, a remote or mountainous region, or down in the basement of a building.

Often the tech can piggy-back on the customer’s own internet connection or wi-fi. But if that is not available or allowed, what can your field techs do in the app when no data connection is present and they are working offline? (One must also ask: if no data connection is present, is there any phone access either?)

The bottom line: The FSM mobile app caches the appointment list and work order details. Any work order edits or updates entered into the mobile app are stored with the time stamp until the device regains internet access.
