Alert Stratus by Fieldpoint Service Applications is a Web-based project management and field service system built upon the Microsoft Dynamics CRM platform. Alert Stratus gives growing service-based companies control over the customer lifecycle, from initial project installation to ongoing management, preventive maintenance, resource scheduling, workforce management, and field operations.
Each project begins as a quote within the system, and is expanded as the project progresses to include all necessary job costing and scheduling features. All fields within Alert Stratus are fully customizable. Appointment and Service Activity modules account for the cost of time and labor, and can incorporate this information into the billing cycle.
Graphs help users visualize project margins and costs at every phase of a project: estimates versus actuals and percentage of completion. This job-costing structure can help provide valuable information for managing resources, as well as estimating potential revenue.
In addition, all invoicing and billing can be managed from within Alert Stratus. Billing triggers can be added to a project based on a variety of factors, such as a specific date, the percentage of project completion, an important milestone, or billing based on task completion.
