Today, Coresystems, a provider of cloud-based mobile field and customer service apps and software, is announcing that in its second round of funding it has raised 10 million Swiss Francs of funding from Swiss venture capital firm Investnet AG.
Coresystems will use the funding to strengthen its global market presence, in particular the United States and South America, where they have seen a strong demand for its cloud-based field service solutions and apps. Customers cite the ease of data integration, the speed of implementation, and the responsiveness of the company when choosing Coresystems’ solutions.
“In today’s hyper-competitive business environment, companies know that they need to deliver faultless field and customer service. The investment is a strong endorsement of the field and customer service software space and we are delighted to be putting more resources into our two fastest-growing regions,” said Philipp Emmenegger, Coresystems CEO.
Coresystems is also announcing that it has appointed software industry veteran Tony Solano as the new General Manager / Senior Vice President Americas Sales. Solano has over two decades experience in software sales, and is charged with expanding coresystems’ market share in the Americas. Solano said, “There has been an explosion in growth in the field services software industry, driven by the desire to be more efficient, productive, and to increase customer satisfaction. I am happy to be helping expand coresystems’ US growth and see many oppor- tunities ahead.” Former General Manager and Co-Founder of Coresystems USA, Arti Sahgal, will continue to focus her proven expertise on further driving business expansion and revenue in the Channel and Partner Business as Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) / Senior Vice President.

Coresystems is on the cusp of a revolution in field and customer service and its strong growth in the Americas is testament to this,” said Andreas Etter, Investnet AG.
