HOLMDEL, N.J. — WorkWave inspired and educated more than 700 influential leaders across the field service industry this month at its inaugural Beyond Service User Conference. WorkWave said this new event delivered valuable business insights, networking opportunities and exciting entertainment to WorkWave’s pest control, lawn care and HVAC customers.
The 2022 Beyond Service User Conference, held in Orlando, Florida, on Jan. 9-12, offered a powerful reimagining of three leading field service events, as they came together as one: the WorkWave User Conference, Real Green’s Solutions Users Conference, and Coalmarch’s CO2 Conference. The combined event reflects the unprecedented consolidation of market-leading field service software solutions WorkWave, Real Green, Coalmarch, Slingshot, Lawnbot, and most recently TEAM Software, under the WorkWave brand.
“This conference was the first time we’ve been able to see the result of our strategy last year: bringing together not just the most respected technology companies in our industry, but the best service leaders from different industries,” said David F. Giannetto, CEO of WorkWave. “That is actually why we went out and acquired the best companies—because we wanted to capture the talent and expertise that will empower us to deliver solutions that bring these industries into a new future that only WorkWave could deliver. It has been our honor to host a conference that brings together people from WorkWave brands and all of our customers, to build and foster the partnerships and relationships that we have forged, and will continue to forge, as WorkWave continues to deliver the most powerful solutions across the field service industry.”
Highlights of Beyond Service 2022 included a keynote address by legendary former NFL star Joe Theismann; a powerful welcome presentation by Giannetto; expert panels, roundtables, Q&A sessions and one-on-one tech interactions; and exciting social events.
