Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) August 27, 2012
FieldSolutions, Inc., a leader in sourcing and managing independent, third-party field technician resources, today announced it has been selected by UBM Channel and CRN as a 2012 Emerging Technology Vendor. The annual list features the most innovative vendors who not only deliver technology that is easy to use, but can generate the high margins solution providers require. The vendors that make up the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor list were founded in 2006 or later, have revenue under $1 billion and have an active U.S. channel strategy.
Among these Emerging Vendors are companies that have already established themselves in their market segment and others that are already making an impact despite a recent launch. Each organization on the list represents a new partnership and a go-to-market opportunity for solution providers looking to identify new vendor partners.
Electronic equipment manufacturers and service providers come to FieldSolutions to achieve a breakthrough in the performance and total cost of their field service technical operations by deploying their certified contractors as a supplemental field service resource. FieldSolutions’ work management tools allow a new level of control in managing remote, independent technicians with significant cost savings and performance results when compared to full time employees.
Maintaining one of the largest networks of independent contractor field service technicians in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, FieldSolutions has grown rapidly over the last two years, expanding its business to serve new technologies and extend its geographic coverage.
“Emerging doesn't mean what it used to,” said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, UBM Channel. “And this collection of up-and-comers and new-to-the-game vendors is on an upward trajectory that a host of young companies that preceded them could barely imagine. With new innovations like cloud computing and virtualization speeding up the pace of innovation, and technology mainstays like storage and networking branching off into new directions, this list encapsulates a tectonic technology shift where the recently founded are starting to rule the roost and become household names much more quickly than in the past. We congratulate each vendor on the list and congratulate them for placing an emphasis on innovation and ease of use, features that are the hallmark of any successful channel offering.”
Final selection to the Emerging Technology Vendor list was made by the CRN editorial team after a review of submitted information. To view a sample of the list and read the editorial accompaniment visit http://www.CRN.com.
“It’s always great to be recognized by a leading respected media vehicle like CRN” states FieldSolutions CEO Mac Lewis, “but there is nothing more gratifying than earning the respect and continued appreciation by the world’s leading technology service companies for our direct-to-technician field service labor approach. Our extraordinary client retention and continuous growth serving the most demanding service companies over the past several years as they adopt our innovative business model is testament to the acceptance of new business strategies that create value while achieving superior service performance levels.”
