Dale If the cost of a canned Field Service solution is out of your budget, you may want to consider creating your own to meet your need like Dale has done. Then find a hardware solution and a third party software company to integrate the two. There are many data collection companies that offer a CDMA/GSM device including Intermec. Finding a device that meets the needs of your application should be easy, but if receipt printing is an option, not all hardware vendors can do both. We are doing a similar type of project for route delivery/confirmation receipt printing for a MAPICS customer using mobile devices with printing and our QuikTrac solution that I would be glad to share with you the details off line.

The MAPICS Field Service Management solution comes with a boatload of pre-requisites ($$) that we don't have so it isn't on the A-list. Does anyone have input regarding other solutions to consider? WC Fields? Others? Thanks in advance, Dale Walker VP, Management Information Systems Gross-Given Mfg.
