Requesting FSM access

This Job Aid supports the technician, FPM and QC audiences.

What is this form used for?

Field Service Management (FSM) is an order management system used by both ViaSat Retail and Fulfillment Partners. This Registration Form is used by the Retail Dealer and the Retail Installer to gain FSM access for Retail Order tracking and Retail Service call completion. This form is completed after Retail Dealer and their Installers complete the FSM system training.

Navigate to the request access for U.S. Self-Installing (SI) / Sales Only (SO) dealers’ web page – https://www.exede.com/FSM/

Please note that every person in the Dealership will have a unique FSM account, so every person needing access to FSM needs to complete this form.

Example: A Dealership has the owner, one sales agent, one order scheduler/dispatcher, and three Installers. Each of the six people in the Dealership will need to complete this form.

For questions about completing this form contact the Partner Support team at 888-278-6829.

After completing the form it can take up to 48 hours for the new FSM account to be created. For questions about your FSM account email fsmadministrator@viasat.com.

If you have questions about adding installers to a Home Service Provider (HSP) network, please contact the HSP for the necessary forms; DO NOT USE THIS FORM to add Installers to a HSP installation network.
