How to Solve the Top Solar O&M Challenges

Disjointed Service Tickets

It can be difficult and inefficient to manage service tickets across multiple tools. Use Scoop to consolidate your service tickets and standardize the ticket review and qualification process.

Unavailable Service History

Maintenance crews often lack context from installation and service histories because data is missing or hard to find. Use Scoop to auto-populate relevant details for your technicians.

Disconnected Calendars

Generic calendar and scheduling systems can be hard to manage and are disconnect from your work orders. Scoop's integrated calendar feature is tied directly to service tickets.

Missed Steps & Processes

In the event that service technicians miss crucial steps, this results in longer service times, additional truck rolls, site visits, and costs. Scoop's adaptive rules present specific troubleshooting steps, videos, and documents.

Tedious Report Generation

Service report generation can be tedious and time consuming, putting client satisfaction and payments at risk. Use Scoop's PDF report builder to automate service reports and trigger invoices.

Poor Inventory Management

Most teams lack visibility on the location of required parts, their costs, and when they will be available. Use Scoop to integrate with your inventory management system to create predictability in your work orders.
