Infomill Selected as a Field Service Innovator by IDC

Infomill, a leading provider of knowledge solutions for field service technicians, has been recognized as one of four IDC Innovators in the field service market. The new report, “IDC Innovators: Field Service for Manufacturing 2017” profiles field service vendors who specialize in manufacturing and offer an innovative technology, groundbreaking new business model or both.


According to Jonathan Ralphs, CEO, Infomill was selected because of its AnswersAnywhere Knowledge-as-a-Service which combines people, process and technology to convert, deliver and continuously optimize the knowledge required for field service organizations to increase customer satisfaction, shorten field visits and drive efficiency, accuracy and profitability. Ralphs said that the types of knowledge that Infomill knowledge experts convert include hard copy and PDF documents, service manuals, schematic drawings, exploded diagrams, part lists, product descriptions and alerts, database output, images and videos.

“We are gratified that AnswersAnywhere has been recognized as an innovative solution in the highly competitive field service market. Because AnswersAnywhere is a Knowledge-as-a-Service, we can help our customers create and deploy a sophisticated field service knowledge base in weeks rather than months,” Ralphs said.
