ClickSoftware CEO features in ‘Top 20 Field Service Industry Influencers’

Issue date: March 1, 2017 Tom Heiser, CEO of ClickSoftware, features in Field Service News 2017 influencer list

Field Service News, Europe’s leading business magazine dedicated to the field service industry, today announced its top 20 industry influencers in field service for 2017. Tom Heiser, CEO of ClickSoftware, the leading provider of field service management software, is featured on the annual list.

2017 marks the third year that the “Top 20 Field Service Industry Influencers” list has been published by Field Service News, a collection of influencers decided by a committee of industry experts. The influencer list celebrates individuals in field service who have been integral to industry improvement over the past year and who are expected to play a leading role in the industry’s future.

This is the first time that Heiser has been featured in the Field Service News list since beginning his tenure as CEO of ClickSoftware began in October 2015. Heiser has more than three decades of operational and executive technology leadership experience, and is a proven leader in implementing strategies focused on improving the overall customer experience.

During his 18 months at ClickSoftware, Tom has led numerous organizational changes, as well as rapid growth and innovation, including the launch of Click Field Service Edge – ClickSoftware’s cloud-first solution for field service organizations.

Commenting on his inclusion in the top 20 influencer list, Heiser said: “It’s great to have been recognized as a key industry influencer. Everything that we’ve been able to achieve in the past year and a half is testament to the innovative spirit of the ClickSoftware team. This continued innovation gives our customers more creative ways to optimize for operational efficiencies, business goals, and even customer experience.

He continued: “We’re challenging our customers to rethink what’s possible. Service organizations are moving from being cost centers to driving customer satisfaction, growing revenue, and delivering excellent customer experiences. For example, or recently launched Customer Engagement Module provides Uber-like visibility into technician arrival—one customer saw a 35% drop in appointment no-shows. It’s just one of the many ways we help our customers delight their customers. Our unique history in field service gives us a strong vantage point for watching where customer engagement is heading. We can marry our technology with that market vision and keep strengthening ClickSoftware’s position as an industry leader.”
