FieldCentrix, Irvine, Calif., and the Microsoft Consulting Services Advanced Technology (MCSAT) group recently announced they are jointly developing a wireless Internet ordering service for FieldCentrix customers using Microsoft Visual Studio .Net and the .Net framework.

The service, FX e-Service, will be a self-serve Web portal that will allow users to initiate service calls and have real-time Internet access to project status and work progress.

“We believe the Microsoft platform, coupled with Microsoft Mobile devices such as Pocket PC and smart phones, will be key to creating leading-edge field service automation solutions,” says Tracy Price, FieldCentrix president and CEO.

There is no published launch date for the service.
