Monitoring a job in progress can be made easy based on an integrated workflow, and a series of managerial views, alerts & reports.
Tracking by serial numbers helps checking on warranty status based on international warranty coverage, company’s warranty, or, on an annual maintenance agreement (annual retainer or subscription).
