TSIA Selects Kinetic Data and CareTech Solutions to Co-Present at Technology Services World 2011 Silicon Valley

An educational session will reveal how the healthcare IT services provider achieved best in KLAS for IT Outsourcing (Extensive) for three consecutive years.

ST. PAUL, Minn. and SAN DIEGO, Calif.—May 2, 2011—Kinetic Data (http://www.kineticdata.com), provider of third-party business service management (BSM) tools built on the BMC Remedy Action Request (AR) System platform, has been selected with CareTech Solutions as featured co-speakers by the Technology Services Industry Association (TSIA) at the Technology Services World (TSW) 2011 Silicon Valley conference, May 2–4 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

Brett Norgaard of Kinetic Data and Karl Graham of CareTech Solutions will co-present the case study entitled, “The Intersection of IT Outsourcing and Healthcare: How CareTech Solutions Achieved Top 20 Best in KLAS Awards Distinction”, on Tues., May 3, at 11:00 a.m. PDT, in Grand E. Attendees may also visit Kinetic Data’s booth #7 at TSW to learn about the service provider solution, Kinetic Data's Multi-Tenant Suite, and discuss the hottest topics in tech services, including emerging service business models.

CareTech—an IT services provider for hospitals—has grown their business by automating their service request management (SRM) system with Kinetic Request, a request management system offered by Kinetic Data. This configurable multi-tenant platform gives CareTech the flexibility to shape a unique experience for each of their clients.

“While CareTech’s initial investment in Kinetic Request was to improve our own help desk request process, it quickly made sense to integrate the application into our healthcare-specific service desk offering for our own clients,” said Karl Graham, senior director of customer support for CareTech Solutions. According to Graham, CareTech’s customers experience reduced fulfillment costs, expedited fulfillment of service requests, and now have a transparent, reliable audit trail using Kinetic Request.

CareTech earned the coveted Top 20 Best in KLAS Award for IT Outsourcing (Extensive) in 2010, 2009 and 2008.

TSW is the technology services industry’s premier conference event, bringing together the brightest minds and top decision-makers in the market space.

“TSW presenters go through a methodical application process that ensures the content is relevant to services professionals, who can use it to optimize the success of their own organizations,” said Trisha Bright, vice president of conferences for TSIA. “Kinetic Data and CareTech were selected due to the significance and suitability of their topic to our audience and because of their leading position in the technology services space.”
