PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwired - May 20, 2013) - ServiceMax, the leading field service management solution for a new era of business, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the OnDemand Top 100 winners for its vision and successful execution in rethinking the way cloud and mobile technology can disrupt and improve the field service industry. Inclusion in the OnDemand 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players. ServiceMax was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
ServiceMax stood out for the OnDemand Awards for its vision to rethink an industry that was in dire need of innovation and deliver a mobile product for a mobile workforce. With more than five-million field service professionals in the United States alone -- and many of them still using clipboards or clunky, on-premise software -- ServiceMax is changing the way devices are installed, repaired, and maintained in our homes, offices, and hospitals. Today, ServiceMax is the only complete, cloud-based, mobile product created to address the needs of the modern, mobile, field service industry.
ServiceMax and the OnDemand Top 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's OnDemand event on May 20th, 2013, at Hewlett-Packard's Executive Briefing Center in Palo Alto, CA.
"The world of the cloud is beginning to live up to its promise of expanding and enhancing almost every sector of the technology world. Public, private, and hybrid, the cloud infrastructure companies that can provide the most robust, always-on performance are the ones that are propelling us into a completely new digital age," says Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. "This year's OnDemand 100 winners represent the companies that are not only providing the space to develop daring, indispensable applications for a growing and increasingly mobile universe, they're making sure that everyone has their information, data, media, and apps whenever and wherever they happen to be. The innovations these companies are developing goes beyond consumer, beyond business enterprise -- it's the future, in the palm of your hand, on your desktop, in your car. The on-demand paradigm is computing, and the Global Silicon Valley has never been more ready to take on its challenge."
The OnDemand 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2013 list.
