Your company is growing because you’ve made great decisions. You’ve worked hard to get your company where it is today, but phases of high growth for any business are not without growing pains.
When you started your business you probably began using some basic applications to manage your business – a basic accounting application, a database for storing customer information, and likely a few spreadsheets and other homespun systems to track the oilfield services side of your business. However, as your business grows – the challenge you begin to face is that all of these systems are disconnected and were not designed to talk to each other. In many cases they become a little too limiting on their own and can begin to create bottlenecks, which causes productivity to suffer. Using multiple disparate systems creates additional work - such as duplicate data entry, which often can turn into errors and delays.
You need a solution that can help you manage your business during rapid-growth, with minimal disruption. Whether you’ve outgrown your existing systems, or are preparing for tomorrow’s growth – implementing a single system to manage your entire business can help alleviate some of those growing pains.
FieldVu is an all-in-one solution for start-to-finish project management that allows you to see everything that matters to your service business – from initial job/contract set-up, job/unit costing, dispatch, field ticketing, labour, equipment rental, maintenance to billing and payroll.
By consolidating all critical data for the day-to-day operations of your business into a single system, you can focus on accelerating the growth of your business and spend less time managing data. Built right into SAP Business One, FieldVu adds functionality specific to the energy services industry right into this single software application. Beyond having your operations, sales, assets, HR, purchasing and financial data centralized in a single system – we’ve made it possible for you to have data such as job and unit costing, preventative maintenance, field ticketing, work orders, scheduling, service/repair, inventory and equipment tracking captured in that same system. With a complete 360 degree view of your business you’ll be ready to improve productivity, reduce costs, seize new opportunities,and anticipate challenges like never before.

Kevin Semejuk, Senior Accountant

FieldVu Key Functionality
Ever wonder which jobs are making you money or losing you money? Ever find out too late to do anything about it? The FieldVu job costing feature eliminates those questions by providing visibility into the profitability of each job, project or work order. At a glance, see the profitability of every open and closed job.
FieldVu's rentals feature enables you to manage your end-to-end rentals process from one system - including scheduling rental equipment in advance, managing the flow of equipment coming in or going out of single or multiple locations, and managing billing rates and cycles to ensure timely and accurate invoicing for the correct billing period.
What does it cost to run each piece of equipment you have? What’s each one earning you? With FieldVu’s unit costing feature, you’ll see projected versus actual costs, down to the penny. You can easily track revenue against all project costs (materials, labor, and third-party), giving you instant visibility into profit-loss analysis.
Ever forget to bill a client for work you’ve completed? Here’s a better way to manage work orders. FieldVu’s work orders feature brings all of your systems together (service and repair, billing, and payroll), along with historical records of work performed. This information can be invaluable for ensuring timely and accurate invoicing, and identifying opportunities for improving efficiency of your staff or service crew - these cost savings go straight to your bottom line.
Ever buy materials or equipment for a job, but forget to bill it back to your client? In this event, the bigger the project, the bigger the risk you’ll be out of pocket for these expenses. Never again. FieldVu’s third-party billing feature ensures all items you purchase for a job show as unbilled until you bill them. No loose ends, no lost revenue.
Having field tickets on one system – then keying tickets into separate payroll and billing programs is asking for trouble. Numbers don’t match. Hours go missing. With the field ticketing feature in FieldVu, everything goes through one system that unites billing, costing and payroll. Everything captured and approved on the field ticket is automatically passed through for billing, costing and payroll. This makes your field ticketing process a snap, there’s no more re-keying and no more missed billing.
When you manage large fleets of equipment and multiple locations, it’s vital to know where everything is at all times. The FieldVu dispatch solution tells you instantly where your equipment is - whether it's out on a job site, in transit, or sitting idle.
HRM & Certifications
The FieldVu HR feature tells you when staff certifications are due and alerts you when a compliance requirement is coming up.
The FieldVu labor sheet feature captures every hour for every employee. Use it to see how many hours were spent on any of your current or completed jobs and what incidents (if any) occured.
