Nalco finished 158th in 2011 InformationWeek 500, an annual listing of the nation’s most innovative users of business technology. The InformationWeek 500 rankings focus on the power of innovation in information technology rather than simply identifying the biggest IT spenders.

Capabilities such as e-mail in the cloud, access to the customer relationship management (CRM) system on smartphones and internal websites for customer documentation helped Nalco sales engineers focus on the highest potential business opportunities. In addition to providing real-time information, the solutions also gave global key account teams a way to aggregate information.
