Hoffman Estates, IL —July 21, 2009—Syclo, a global leader in mobile platform and application technology, announced today it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the 2009 “Magic Quadrant for Field Service Management” report* following their evaluation based on Syclo’s completeness of vision and ability to execute. Syclo was also positioned as a Leader in the Gartner “Mobile Enterprise Application Platforms,” (or MEAP) report.
Gartner predicts, “By 2012, the percentage of technicians with wireless access to a formal packaged field service management (FSM) solution in a large enterprise will increase from 12% to 40%.” They continue, “Field service is increasingly viewed as an integral part of a unified customer strategy, improved over time as part of a careful project. It is as integral as sales, marketing and customer support to product-centric businesses. Another factor bringing field service into focus for many North American and European enterprises is the aging of the workforce, and the challenges with passing along process and customer knowledge to new employees, while at the same time, reducing or keeping head count flat—making the efficiencies gained by FSM suites and mobile automation key mitigating tactics.”
