June 27, 2012 - CLEVELAND … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation today announced that the company is being honored with a 2012 CIO 100 Award by CIO magazine. The 25th annual award program recognizes organizations around the world that exemplify the highest level of operational and strategic excellence in information technology (IT). Eaton has won the CIO 100 Award on five previous occasions, most recently in 2011.
This year, CIO magazine recognized Eaton’s powerful and innovative POWEREDGETM mobile app for on-demand access to Eaton’s electrical solutions and expertise as being easy to use and intuitive. Additionally, CIO applauded Eaton’s marketing strategy for the POWEREDGE launch.
“Eaton continues to enhance its abilities to provide customers with leading technologies and is pleased to win the CIO award again this year,” said Bill Blausey, Eaton senior vice president and chief information officer. “Business is no longer confined to the office, and customers and channel partners alike need access to information on the fly. Eaton’s POWEREDGE mobile app helps customers find information and solutions that improve the reliability, efficiency and safety of the systems they manage.”
Leveraging Apple iPhone® and iPad® platforms, Eaton created the POWEREDGE mobile app to engage with customers, provide educational sales tools and enable users to conveniently find product information. POWEREDGE allows users to search through Eaton’s electrical catalogs; select and share product information; watch solutions at work and learn from Eaton experts.
