As the cloud technology market grows and evolves globally, the annual Talkin’ Cloud 100 research report tracks the trends and leading cloud services providers that are driving it. TOA Technologies, a worldwide provider of field service management solutions in the cloud, was selected for this year’s list, ranking number 37 on the third-annual list of the world’s top cloud companies. TOA also was the 23rd fastest-growing cloud services provider among all vendors, based on percentage revenue growth year over year from 2011 to 2012, and the only field service management software provider to make the list.
In 2003, TOA Technologies’ co-founders set out to change how products and services are delivered in the field. Recognizing the potential of an Internet-based software service, the company developed ETAdirect, the first field service management solution natively built in the cloud. Today, TOA’s cloud-based application suite helps businesses across the globe manage their field service organizations from cable and telecommunications companies to utilities to lawn care providers to operate more efficiently and deliver a better customer experience. Because of its success in accomplishing its vision and continued rapid growth, TOA has been included in the 2013 Talkin’ Cloud 100 list of the top cloud services providers worldwide.
“When we entered the mobile workforce management market, the term ‘cloud’ didn’t even exist. We knew that we had an immense opportunity to provide a more reliable, scalable, flexible and modern field service solution built in the cloud,” said Yuval Brisker, co-founder and CEO of TOA Technologies. “To me, this recognition as one of the world’s top cloud services providers validates not only that we were able to successfully deliver a completely unique way to manage field service operations by taking a risk at the right time and building ETAdirect natively in the cloud. It also proves that we were able to globally evangelize the power and value of the cloud.”
In addition to this recognition as an influential cloud services provider, TOA has experienced other milestones in the past year, including:
• Raising $66 million in venture capital from Technology Crossover Ventures, which is based in Silicon Valley and provides growth-stage capital to technology businesses;
• Being named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Field Service Management;
• Successful launching a new product, ETAdirect Professional, to meet the needs of a growing mid-market opportunity;
• Earning recognition as one of America’s Most Promising Companies by Forbes magazine;
• Published by Nine Lives Media, the Talkin’ Cloud 100 is an annual research report which identifies the top trends in the growing cloud market and ranks cloud services providers based on cloud services offered, total cloud services revenue and cloud services revenue growth.
