WALTHAM, MA -- Mac-Gray Corporation is proud to announce that the company has been selected as a winner of the 2007 InfoWorld 100 Awards according to an InfoWorld 100 press release. The awards recognize IT projects demonstrating the most creative application of state-of-the-art technologies to achieve business goals.
Mac-Gray, a laundry facilities management company, received the award in the services category it represented. The company was recognized for its creative application of Vettro 360 Service & Repair across its 260 technicians and 100 coin collectors in 24 locations. The mobile solutions of Mac-Gray - TechLinx and CollectorLinx – have enabled its field service staff to prioritize their tickets and work load. With the help of a unified handset-based application, the staff can enhance the speed and accuracy of their performance. Through the mobile deployment, the company has also been able to minimize error rates on parts orders. In addition to this, the GPS capabilities of the application have considerably reduced fuel consumption across the company’s fleet of vehicles.
