Annual American Business Awards

We are thrilled to announce that one of our clients, The UP! App, has been named the winner of the Bronze Stevie® Award in the Business/Government category in the 18th Annual American Business Awards®. The app is an on-demand communication platform that connects industrial manufacturers with technicians who can repair and service their machinery.

Evoke Technologies as the technology partner of The Up! App built an application that connects industrial manufacturers to technicians who can repair and service both new and legacy machinery. Through this app, the digital technology company is revolutionizing the way industrial field service is done by bringing manufacturers and service technicians together in one seamless platform. The on-demand service makes it easy to find the right technician, at the right time, at the right price. The app can be downloaded free from the Apple Stores or Google Play stores.


Repair and service are right at your fingertips. Here’s how The UP! App works:

  1. Send Service Requests
  2. Receive Responses
  3. Connect with Service Providers via in app chat feature or video call
  4. Schedule RepairRate and review the Service Provider


“We are honored to be the recipient of the Bronze Stevie Award”, said David Rhodes, The UP! App Director of Sales & Customer Success. “The UP! App continues to be a pioneer in the field service sector. We are excited to be recognized for our work in providing essential field service solutions for manufacturers and service providers.” A comment from one of the judges speaks to the key reason the app was developed. “Build it and they will come, to help you fix your machines that is. Great way to address a problem with a great solution. Well done.” The UP! App developers realized the need for industrial manufacturers to be able to connect to service providers for machinery repair in a timely manner. With a clear understanding that each minute of downtime translates to lost dollars, the developers understood the problem and created a solution, in the form of a comprehensive app.


The Stevie® Award committee received over 3,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry across a wide range of categories. More than 230 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners. The American Business Awards® are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be virtually presented to winners during a live event on Wednesday, August 5.


“The shortage of skilled industrial technicians has fueled the need for alternative options to source field service providers,” said Rhodes. “The UP! App solves this by connecting manufacturers to field service technicians instantly.” As one of the judges noted, “Great idea and very helpful. Well done and (I) can see how this is going to make a lot of people’s lives a lot less frustrating trying to find a repair person.”


The UP! App continues to evolve to meet the needs of both manufacturers and service providers. App improvements in the areas of connectivity, chat interaction, and real-time video conferencing, continue to take shape in response to the needs of requesters and providers.
