Center Harbor, NH, United States, 2011/05/10 - Don Scraper has been in the CMMS/EAM space for nearly 20 years and will run sales operations for Smartware Group, makers of Bigfoot CMMS - BigfootCMMS.com.
Smartware Group, Inc., the premier provider of Bigfoot CMMS (computerized maintenance management software) for optimizing maintenance of facility and operations equipment, welcomed CMMS veteran Don Scraper as sales manager. Scraper will run daily operations of Bigfoot CMMS sales, train and grow the sales team and drive product revenues.
“Don is a ‘real find’ for Smartware Group,” said Marc Bromberg, vice president of sales. “With his longevity in the CMMS market and intimate understanding of organizational maintenance operations, Don is truly an industry expert. We look forward to collaborating with him in taking Smartware Group to its next stage of growth.”
“Having worked with a number of CMMS/EAM products, I value the simplicity of Smartware Group’s Bigfoot maintenance solution,” said Scraper. “Its breadth of functionality and ease of use allows organizations to see quick results, which is a unique proposition within the CMMS/EAM industry. I’m excited to have the opportunity to work with the Smartware team in increasing the Bigfoot imprint within new and existing markets worldwide.”
With degrees in industrial, and health and safety engineering technology, Scraper brings nearly two decades in successful sales and implementation of CMMS and enterprise asset management (EAM) solutions to Smartware Group. Starting in 1989, Scraper sourced and installed a leading EAM solution at Universal Studios in Florida. He was subsequently recruited by the solution provider, Maintenance Automation in 1993 (now a subsidiary of IBM) to run strategic accounts where he played a major role in growing sales 300 percent in less than three years.
Scraper continued selling CMMS and EAM products in both traditional onsite and SaaS models for several companies, including Tabware CMMS Group (now AssetPoint) and Strategic Maintenance Planning Ltd. in the UK. As vice president of sales and marketing at CMMS/EAM start-up EPAC Software Technologies, Scraper created a sales organization and initiated marketing strategies that culminated in a 600-percent increase in annual sales over a nine-year span.
