Our mission of delighting our customers and providing the world’s best service management software motivates and unites us.

We are inspired by our customers in the field services management industry who put their blood, sweat and tears into their businesses and we work hard to provide them the best service management software to help their businesses succeed.

By contractors for contractors. Since 1979

This isn’t our first rodeo. Over three decades ago we invented field service software to run our own HVAC contracting business. dESCO grew from there, to 30,000+ users. Now, we’ve built the ideal product from the ground up, made it accessible from anywhere on web and mobile, and renamed it FieldEdge. Here’s our story.

Guts and a phone booth

Our original founders George and Glenn Slay were HVAC contractors and fearless entrepreneurs. Before they even had an office, George called Carrier from a phone booth and sold them on giving his small company Island Aire a rep contract. And that’s where it all began. The first users’ meeting was held in 1979. In the photo, George and Glen Slay are in the back row.

Compressors by day, computers by night

The founders personally serviced customers during the day and at night, wrote software that would help them get a handle on their rapidly expanding business. Fellow service contractors got wind of this and wanted the same kind of software help. So Island Aire started a new division, Coastal Computer Corporation, to sell the industry’s first service software system.

More bang for the buck, on every platform

Competitors saw opportunity and entered the market, but we always stayed a step ahead.

  • When all the systems in the 80’s were on DOS requiring expensive five- or six-figure hardware, we converted to the FIOS platform so contractors could digitize at a fraction of the cost.
  • When Windows became a less expensive way to go, we redesigned our product once again.
  • We were first with an electronic dispatch board in the mid 90’s.
  • We were among the first to offer an affordable mobile solution in the early 2000’s
  • Now we’re at the cutting edge again with FieldEdge, combining the dESCO legacy with the latest cloud-based technology
From dESCO to FieldEdge

In the mid 1990’s, Dean Schreiner, who started with the company as service manager, bought out the Slays and renamed the company dESCO after his initials: Dean Egon Schreiner. Evolving based on what our customers told us they needed, dESCO’s system became the national leader, the most comprehensive and versatile service package on the market, with complete QuickBooks integration. A new management team purchased the company in 2015 to keep us growing and evolving. Some of our oldest ESC systems, in place for 20 years, continue to work and we continue to support them. Island Aire has continued to be a customer all along, and helped test and refine the new FieldEdge.

The FieldEdge Advantage

At FieldEdge, we work hard to find the best people, invest in and grow them once they are here, and, ultimately, ensure they are happy. Our core value of caring deeply is the key to this mission. We think our people are awesome, so we created the FieldEdge Advantage—our way of being awesome right back.

Make Your Next Career Move

FieldEdge is shaping the future of field services, and we’re looking for talented, committed individuals to join our team as we continue our extraordinary growth trajectory. At FieldEdge, you can find a home for your ideas and talents while helping us make a difference in the lives of home service contractors everywhere.

    I have been working at FieldEdge full-time (More than a year)


    I have been at FieldEdge for about a year and a half. It has been one of the best companies that I have worked for. Depending on the position that you are looking for the work-life balance is excellent. There are times where you may have to work late or from home as the company needs you to, however, that is balanced with the ability to work from home when you need to, so I feel it’s a fair trade.

    The management team really seem to care about their employees and fellow coworkers have been wonderful helping me any way they can. FieldEdge is growing rapidly, therefore, there is a lot of opportunity for lateral or upward personal development. The management team and my peers seem to really care about one another and always try to help each other.

    We also do a lot of fun and interesting activities such as: team dinners (usually monthly, and drinks are included), community volunteer opportunities, family events (these are new, and seem to be monthly), additionally we also have about two company parties a year. The addition of the family-friendly events has been a huge benefit for me, my wife, and 2-year-old son.


    As with most tech companies that are rapidly growing, there have been a lot of changes, which can be stressful. However, I do feel we’re moving in the right direction.
    The only other thing I can think of as a con would be that the medical benefits are not as good as when I first started, however, I think this is just what is going to happen with all medical benefits for all companies and they are still good just not as good.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to try and remember to keep a good balance of profits, customers and employees as the company grows so that one does not overpower the other.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FieldEdge.


    What a stimulating experience! This was not one of those surface interviews where I go in to shake some hands and recite my skit. The management team here tries to really understand who they're hiring, so get ready to talk about uncomfortable things like your true weaknesses, and what really motivates you in life. In return, they are fully upfront about the opportunities and challenges in the role.
