Press for OnForce
Field service technicians can now check in and update their progress from the field using OnForce's new app for iOS devices, according to OnForce.
OnForce, the leading source for on-site tech talent, completed a $5 million investment round, led by North Atlantic Capital (NAC), a venture capital firm that specializes in business-to-business technology providers. The funding was raised specifically to accelerate growth, fuel increased technology innovation and meet the needs of large, industry-leading corporations.
Today, OnForce, the #1 source for on-site tech talent in the cloud, launched the IT field service industry's first quarterly benchmark – The OnForce IT Field Services Confidence Index – which shows that entrepreneurs in IT field services are pessimistic about the current economic situation. In fact, just over 51 percent of IT field service professionals surveyed said that reduced business spending and fewer IT service job opportunities have had a negative impact on their bottom line.
Service companies have a tough job trying to strike the right financial balance between growing their businesses and hiring full-time employees. In fact, nearly 60 percent of those surveyed at CompTIA Breakaway 2011 earlier this month said that managing growth and fully utilizing full-time employees are the biggest challenges they face. Rising operational, fuel and administrative costs also ranked high.
