- Display and view all your field assets on the Map
- Schedule and manage one-off work orders against your Esri asset database
- Create and schedule recurring series of asset maintenance tasks
- Plan and propose optimized routes for key activities, such as inspections
- Assign asset work orders by skills matching, finding the nearest technician, or determining the next available technician
- Draw boundaries around multiple assets to mass schedule, route and assign work orders against assets
Field Squared supports nodal, linear and polygonal geometry types for assets.
Redline Asset Updates from the Field – Online or Offline
Using the Field Squared Mobile Application, field technicians can visualize assets over Esri’s ArcGIS base maps and overlays as well as redline asset updates from their mobile device in the field—online or offline.
As leading field service management software provider, and one that understands the importance of geospatial asset management, Field Squared was a natural choice to partner with on this effort. Integrating ArcGIS and making the information available in the platform and mobile application directly in the field, is exciting for both Esri customers and Field Squared customers.

Collaborate in Real-Time, From the Office to the Field
Collaborate on your Esri-based asset maintenance work orders in real-time via in-app messaging solutions. With Field Squared you can:
- Send links to work orders, assets and customers via text message
- Collaborate on ArcGIS redline updates between the operations manager and the field
- Access a conversation history against your Esri assets to help audit maintenance tasks performed or overdue
Capture Photos, Scan Barcodes and More Against Your Esri Assets
With every type of Esri asset you maintain, chances are you have a different paper form the field technicians use for their work orders. Field Squared’s drag-and-drop digital form builder helps you convert any paper form to a digital version in a matter of minutes.
Our digital forms builder includes powerful out-of-the-box tools and logic to capture field and asset data against your Esri assets, such as:
- Capture photos or scan barcodes – some of our customers take 100+ photos per work order form
- Leverage native photo markup tools, allowing technicians to label problem areas or annotate issues against your Esri assets
- Access math-based controls to allow complex functions and calculations (values, averages, sums, totals, percentages, etc.)
- Capture signatures and initials
At the click of a button or via an automated workflow, forms can be emailed to personnel or customers upon completion. All changes are date- and time-stamped and include the GPS location as well as the name of the technician who made the changes.
Create Automated Approval Workflows
The nature of asset maintenance and field service work requires enabling technicians to redline asset updates right from the field. But we understand making changes to your Esri asset database is not something to be taken lightly.
With Field Squared, field updates can be part of automated approval workflows before they are synced back to your ArcGIS database, ensuring you’re in control of your data-and any updates-at all times.
