While customer service is the lifeblood of any business, it is paramount for field service companies who rely on their technicians to provide top-notch on-site service. This can be quite challenging because technicians need to schedule appointments efficiently, dispatch them to the right places at the right times, and make sure they have all the necessary tools and parts. Field service companies that excel in these aspects not only survive, but thrive.
This blog explores the key benefits of Dynamics 365 Field Service and its different pricing options to help you choose the right plan for your business.

Dynamics 365 Field Service pricing
Let’s break it down in simple terms. Dynamics 365 Field Service has different pricing options to fit your needs. It’s all about how many people or devices you need to access the software and what level of features you require.
Full User: $95 per user per month
This is the full package. You get access to all of the features of Dynamics 365 Field Service. This includes the ability to create and manage work orders, schedule appointments, and track inventory.
Device: $145 per device per month
Device licenses are for shared gadgets, such as tablets or laptops used by multiple technicians. You still get access to all the features.
Team Member: $8 per user per month
Team Member licenses are for those who need just a bit of access. If you’re the kind of user who only needs to update records or view data, this is your affordable option.
First user vs. Additional user licensing
Dynamics 365 Field Service is priced at $95 per user per month for the first user and $20 per user per month for each additional user. This pricing structure makes it affordable for businesses of all sizes to get started with Dynamics 365 Field Service.
If you have ten users, your monthly cost would be $95 + (9 x $20) = $275.
To qualify for the discounted price of $20 per user per month, businesses must purchase an Attach license. Attach licenses are available for businesses that already have a license for another Dynamics 365 application, such as Dynamics 365 Sales or Dynamics 365 Customer Service.
