"The field service industry is one of the ripest sectors for this change and we believe that ServiceMax is leading the way. We are proud to be working with a great team and fast-growing industry leader."

Month after month and quarter after quarter, more customers are choosing ServiceMax because of our uniquely compelling value. Our goal was to rethink field service management, and, with nearly 400 percent growth, it's clear we're well on the road to defining a new industry standard. Now, with this new financing and the support of Mayfield, we are clearly ready to continue on this path and to expand our position as leader in field service management."
