Watch for our CEO, Chris Ruff, on the Field Service Panel for Digital Transformation

Field Service 2021 is November 16-18 at the JW Marriott in Palm Springs. A live stream will also be available for those who wish to attend virtually.

Since 2003, Field Service 2021 has provided a place for the top support minds and service executives to get together and discuss achieving service excellence and driving profitability. Glympse is excited to participate this year as a sponsor and panel presenter!

Take a Glympse below for a sneak peek at what Chris will be talking about, why we’re excited to attend, and our list of can’t miss sessions.

Key Points for the Panel

It’s a critical time for businesses struggling to find staff and also stay on top of operations. However, a business’s digital transformation journey doesn’t have to be on hold due to these staff shortages.

Location tracking technology can help the staff you have now be more productive. For example, track your drivers and technicians to optimize their schedules, decrease missed appointments by providing ETAs, and ultimately increase the number of jobs your staff does in a week. 

Never has real-time location been more critical to managing a business. Discover what’s out there to ensure your business performance doesn’t suffer in our short-staffed world. 

Why Glympse is Attending Field Service 2021

At Glympse, we understand SMBs still face significant hurdles in today’s world. SMB leaders, especially in the field service industry, continue to experience challenges. Responding to inquiries and customer calls, finding and retaining staff, and providing a connected experience for customers to maintain brand loyalty is only getting harder.
