BOULDER, Colo., May 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Knowledge Factor today announced it has been named winner of the 2015 Technology Services Industry Association (TSIA) Vision Award in the commercial category. The award was announced May 6 at the Technology Services World (TSW) Best Practices conference in Santa Clara, California.

This was TSIA's sixth annual Service Revolutions competition, featuring a series of on-stage demonstrations revealing the latest innovations in technology services, including cutting-edge services new to the market, start-ups with innovative service models, the newest advances in service technology, and the latest breakthroughs from the emerging world of service science.

Finalists in the Service Revolutions competition were in the running to win TSIA's coveted Vision Award, with winners being determined by a live audience of industry practitioners along with a panel of expert judges. The categories for Service Revolutions 2015 are:

  • Commercial
  • Start-up
  • Service Practitioner

Knowledge Factor won the 2015 Vision Award in the commercial category for its revolutionary performance impact engine, amplifire – with 78% of the voters indicating the solution was "off the charts cool" or "very cool."

"We knew amplifire would be a perfect fit for this award because the technology represents a dramatic leap forward in the type of impact and results that organizations can expect from learning and training," said Terry Erdle, Senior Vice President of Business Development for Knowledge Factor and presenter at TSIA. "Not only does the software enable organizations to more effectively train their employees, but it also offers unique capabilities – such as the identification of high-risk, high-cost misinformation within even the most well-trained companies – that result in dramatic cost savings and error prevention."

"Since Service Revolutions began in 2010, this event has become renowned for its exciting format, which allows the audience to get a firsthand look at some of the latest innovations in tech services," said J.B. Wood, president and CEO of TSIA. "With 'Driving Adoption and Outcomes' being the theme of this spring's TSW conference, we are proud to recognize Knowledge Factor for their dedication to excellence in the development of their solution."
