FieldRoutes Recognized by Forbes and Inc. Magazines for Outstanding Achievements
McKinney, TX, October 20, 2021—FieldRoutes™—the leading Cloud-based and mobile SaaS provider for field service businesses—is proud to announce their inclusion on both the Inc. 5000, which ranks the nation’s fastest-growing private companies, and Forbes Magazine’s annual ranking of America’s Best Startup Employers.
FieldRoutes—formerly PestRoutes and Lobster Marketing—ranked number 1,273 on the prestigious Inc. 5000 list and was acknowledged for the second year in a row by Forbes Magazine, earning a placement at 336 on their annual ranking of the nation’s best startup employers.
“Achieving recognition from such widely-respected publications is a major accomplishment for our growing organization” said William Chaney, chief executive officer of FieldRoutes. “Our continued growth is no small feat and wouldn’t be possible without the loyalty and support of our customers who are achieving impressive business growth, as well as the tireless dedication of our entire staff. In the past year, we’ve made significant investments in our organization. Specifically, we’ve been fortunate to welcome many talented new employees, primarily in our development team, who continue to be instrumental in creating innovative new technology solutions to help field service companies grow faster and scale effectively.”
FieldRoutes has experienced a 377% three-year growth, which has allowed the company to invest in its technology and people, and in September 2021, officially expand its offering to support the lawn care market. In fact, during this same time last year, the company announced employee growth of over 50%. Throughout 2020 and into 2021, despite the hardships so many faced during the extraordinary situation brought on by COVID-19, the company continued to expand its team by over 40% and is actively hiring for positions across the organization.
“Our continued success during the global challenges of the past year really proves the value and usefulness of the software and solutions we provide for our clients. As we continue to experience high growth, we remain committed to investing in our market-leading technology to help field service providers overcome emerging challenges and achieve even more success in the future. Likewise, we’re committed to the professional development of our employees and look forward to seeing them advance within the organization,” said Chaney.
