ATS Recognized as a Program of the Year at Forrester’s 2021 B2B Summit


PEORIA, IL, May 5, 2021 — Advanced Technology Services, Inc. (ATS) announced today that it has won the Program of the Year (PoY) Award for successfully implementing Forrester’s research, frameworks, and best practices to improve performance. PoY Award winners are being recognized at Forrester’s B2B Summit 2021 live virtual event held May 3–6.

Formerly the SiriusDecisions Summit, Forrester’s B2B Summit has been a trusted destination and community for sales, product, and marketing leaders for more than a decade. Event attendees include B2B leaders, top analysts, inspirational thinkers, and innovative technology providers that come together to better understand the latest B2B buying trends, changing buyer needs, and new practices across sales, marketing, and product management to achieve optimal performance and accelerate revenue growth.

ATS won the PoY Award for Product Management by leveraging Forrester’s Product Marketing and Management (PMM) lifecycle model to diversify their service portfolio, while developing and standardizing a new go-to-market strategy for their flagship Comprehensive Maintenance Solution. These efforts allowed them to expand into new markets resulting in a 115% increase in the number of inquiries for ATS services and a double-digit year-over-year increase in the number of qualified leads.

“ATS is excited and humbled to be chosen for this Product Management PoY award. It is the culmination of lots of hard work from our sales, marketing, and product teams who have truly aligned around our product management and marketing programming. I cannot think of another partner that provides as much value to our go-to-market strategy as Forrester Research. Their comprehensive frameworks, powerful tools, and analyst insights are second to none.” – VP Marketing, advanced technology services

“We are excited to honor this year’s PoY winners,” said John Donlon, VP of product management at Forrester. “Each organization has achieved terrific success, leveraging Forrester’s research and analyst guidance to shape their strategy and drive superlative execution in their respective discipline.”
