The module features a user-defined dashboard, reporting tools and immediate access to quality issues and warranty information from dealers.
PowerObjects Names Dan Cefaratti Field Services Practice Director
PowerObjects, an HCL Company, has appointed Dan Cefaratti to the role of Field Service Practice Director. This is a new role at PowerObjects that was created to provide direction and leadership in the field service practice area in response to the acquisition of FieldOne by Microsoft earlier this year.
“With the addition of Dan to the PowerObjects team, we are truly investing in bringing the industry experts in field service to our customers,” says Steve Thompson, VP of Sales at PowerObjects. “This is an immense opportunity for us to solidify our alignment with Microsoft and their vision.”
Growing a dedicated field service practice will enable PowerObjects to focus on building solutions tailored to organizations with a mobile workforce as well as rounding out their practices by providing high performance customer care solutions for a true 360-degree view of the voice of the customer.

Ron Rand, President and CEO of Rand Group, said such growth and success signaled it was time to bring all aspects of the company’s ERP service offerings together with Harris at the helm.
