The technology community is an interconnected symbiotic ecosystem.
When tech companies need support and resources, they turn to organizations like universities, law firms, accelerator programs, economic development groups, coding bootcamps, and corporations. And when these organizations have their own business needs, they rely on technology solutions to continue operating. These apps and platforms help them increase efficiency, track progress, and fulfill their missions.
For the month of September, Technical.ly’s report explored the theme of The technology behind for our editorial calendar. For some additional perspectives, we asked our Ecosystem Building Companies Technical.ly the following question :
What apps and platforms does your organization rely on to do business (i.e. Slack, CRM, project management software, etc.)?
Here are some responses from their teams, and if you like what you see, follow the links to the business directory pages to learn more and explore ways to connect.
Arcweb Technologies’ mission is to democratize digital healthcare through open source solutions that expand delivery and reduce costs of care. In pursuit of this goal, we are focused on forming long-term partnerships with health and wellness companies and leveraging decades of experience to solve their most pressing software challenges.
“Arcweb has always leveraged a variety of applications and platforms to deliver best-in-class custom software to our customers: we use Jira and Confluence for project management and issue tracking, Git for source control, Amazon Web Services for cloud computing and Google Workspace for almost everything else. Depending on specific customer needs, we also draw on our experience using Microsoft products (including Azure for cloud computing) and other systems (Aha!, ClickUp, etc.). Now that we’re remote-first, we’re relying on Zoom and Slack to maintain our sense of community — our weekly music league Slack channel and our hobby-based channels are particularly active. — Mia Kent, project manager
