"In some tech hubs of the world, the pursuit of youth and unicorns has overshadowed understanding of what enterprises actually need. We built Retriever on the basis of experience, sustainability and understanding of our own and our customers' environments. Retriever's 20th anniversary celebration is a testament that this model works and it is here to stay. There's something to be said for validation and experience," said Mary Brittain-White.


Retriever Communications has been featured by Gartner in its Magic Quadrant, Field Service Management, for the past four years in a row. This year, Retriever was the only vendor in the Quadrant not to lose a single customer over the past year and had the highest customer satisfaction results.

In fact, Retriever's average customer relationship spans more than 10 years. "Our experience and research show that customers want industrial-strength apps that are responsive and robust, not gimmicky. And in addition to developing apps that work well regardless of the connectivity environment, we also take a hands-on approach to service, so our customers know we are always there for them," Mary Brittain-White added.

Retriever serves enterprises in a variety of industries across 3 continents, helping companies streamline their field operations, witnessing increases in productivity of 20-35 percent, improving customer service and cutting IT costs.
