EVERETT, Wash., Jan. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Fluke Networks, the worldwide leader providing certification, troubleshooting, and installation tools for professionals that develop and maintain critical network cabling infrastructure, announced that Eric Conley has been appointed Vice President and General Manager. Conley was previously Vice President and General Manager of Fluke Biomedical and recently took the reins at Fluke Networks, a division of Fluke Electronics Corporation. In his new role, Conley reports to Fluke Corporation President, Wes Pringle.
Conley will lead and guide the growth of Fluke Networks business including its flagship LinkWare Live service and Versiv Cabling Certification System products. LinkWare Live is the world's first cloud-connected cable certification management solution, with customers reporting savings up to 20 percent on certification jobs.
Fluke Networks has trained and certified over 10,000 cable industry project managers and technicians who use the company's tools to build and maintain modern society's essential data and communications infrastructure. These professionals install cable for the most advanced data centers, restore telephone service after a disaster, and optimize data and communications systems for businesses and organizations. Fluke Networks' customers work for companies including regional contractors, telecommunications companies and enterprises worldwide. The world's top ten Fortune 500 companies are registered owners of the Fluke Networks testers.
"While Fluke Networks is engaged in delivering deeply complex technology to help our customers, our domain expertise is understanding our customers' needs, identifying with their day-to-day challenges and knowing what industry changes are ahead," said Conley. "Making cabling professionals more effective and efficient – and helping them grow and be profitable - is our primary goal."
Conley brings a rare combination of entrepreneurial and corporate expertise to Fluke Networks. He founded a company early in his career that he subsequently sold to Tektronix. After working with Tektronix, he was hired to lead Fluke Biomedical in 2012. Conley and his team doubled the size of that business in just three years through a combination of acquisitions and development of several innovative products that helped spur organic growth and increased profitability. A critical factor in Conley's success has been that his fundamental focus remains on understanding and meeting customer needs.
The company's extraordinary industry understanding is based on a long history of industry engagement, including involvement in more than thirty cable industry standards committees and close collaboration with cable manufacturers worldwide. Fluke Networks' extensive knowledge base of over 1,000 articles is recognized worldwide as a resource for testing expertise. Fluke Networks devices are approved by virtually all major cable manufacturers, totaling 29 different vendors.
Fluke Networks developed its latest award-winning product family and platform, LinkWare Live, based on a combination of deep technical expertise and customer knowledge. LinkWare Live is a cloud-based platform that enables customers to easily track job progress, get real-time access to test results to quickly fix problems in the field, and track tester location and status. Since it was launched two years ago, customers have uploaded more than 3 million results to the LinkWare Live platform.
"LinkWare Live is a perfect example of the Fluke Networks approach to helping our customers solve problems," said Conley. "It starts with identifying which problems are the biggest headaches for our customers, like the communications gaps between field technicians and project managers. Then our extraordinary development team gets to work on solving complex issues using elegant technology approaches."
