Digital Transformation of Smiths Detection’s Service

Safety & Security

During the year Smiths Detection launched a Service Management System (SMS) project to improve the quality of customer care by revolutionising the way the service team operates.

Part of this project is the digitalisation of field service management through a mobile application that provides the service team with a single interface for completing several service administration tasks – including scheduling and dispatch, risk assessment, and reporting – which are then automatically updated onto central systems.

Over the next 12 months Smiths Detection will roll out SMS by region, enabling a smooth transition to go-live. The project, which is one of the division’s largest digital transformation initiatives to date, will not only drive efficiencies around service and maintenance processes globally, but is intended to increase first time fix rates and ensure service delivery matches its industry-leading product lines.
