FieldOne Sky Extends CRM

Late last year, Microsoft announced its acquisition of FieldOne, the dynamic company behind one of the most comprehensive field service management solution’s on the planet. Microsoft and FieldOne promised deep rooted integration and native functionality between their two systems that would effectively give each solution what it was missing.

Essentially, FieldOne Sky provides extensions to Dynamics CRM to allow the creation and scheduling of work orders. It also provides a robust mobile application to record work completed by field technicians against said work order. Additionally, Sky allows for a high level of complex possibilities through extensive customization. This is fitting, as System Administrators of CRM can build upon the existing Cases, Contact, Account, Territories, and other CRM service entities.
