Industry experts agree that there is a growing market opportunity for comprehensive service management solutions, as these solutions can provide a competitive differentiator for organizations over the next few years. According to a recent Gartner report, "The view of customer service as a separate business function will evolve into a view of service as an integral part of key business processes."
The Wishbone ServiceSuite includes a robust workforce optimization module, a Web-based order entry and management module, a real-time graphical intelligence portal for dispatchers, interactive wireless applications and an executive dashboard.
