About LogicNets

Helping business think faster and smarter since 2004.

LogicNets is a privately held developer of expert system software and solutions based in Washington, DC. Founded in 2004, the company is focused on developing and deploying its LogicNets expert system platform, a web-based decision support service available to users either on a subscription basis or hosted on their own infrastructure. LogicNets was the first online expert system that businesses could customize themselves to fit their unique processes. The company originally used the platform to create and deliver very large and sophisticated custom solutions, automating a wide range of business processes. In recent years, the company has taken its substantial portfolio of decision support applications and packaged them to provide industry-specific solutions in four focused areas:

 

  • Technical Support and Field Service
  • Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) and Risk Management
  • Healthcare Decision Support
  • Sales Productivity

The LogicNets system is extremely versatile. For some organizations it provides a quick and easy way to create purpose-built expert utilities and productivity tools. Other organizations deploy it as a strategic platform to automate large areas of workflow that are otherwise overly complicated and inefficient. These areas include advanced technical troubleshooting, predictive diagnostics, knowledge management, customer self-service, remote device monitoring, a wide range of compliance activities, and more. LogicNets’ customer base includes such high-profile organizations as Ford Motor Company, Ingersoll Rand, CBS, Fox Networks, Illumina, and NASA. (See more LogicNets customers)

PROFESSIONAL SERVICES

Leslie’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania was in English and History and yet she somehow ended up in the technical sector bridging the gap between code folks and the rest of the world. She gained her professional experience in the dotcom and telecom fields and has managed people, projects, and processes, ensuring the successful launch of physical products and online applications. Leslie uses her almost-obsessive need for order and standardization only for good.
