It is that time of year again. This is a great time to assess where we are as a company and reflect on all of the events that led us to the end of 2014. We had an incredible year here at Integrity Power Search, and I’m proud of the work my team has done to get us to where we are.
Thinking back to 2013….Nick Seguin, a client and friend, introduced Integrity Power Search to Drive Capital. Our passion for Start Up recruiting began to flourish.
Now moving to 2014, Integrity Power Search completed 62 searches for 16 clients across four states. We worked with amazing companies this year headquartered all over the Mid-West in cities such as Chicago, Pittsburgh, Boston, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dayton and Columbus. I picked some of our greatest success stories and most exciting clients to share with you.
CrossChx is a company that develops real-time behavioral intelligence software to prevent medical fraud and to fight prescription drug abuse. We were able to partner with CrossChx to help them quadruple their staff in 2014. We hired 16 technical professionals with a mix of Java Engineers, Lead Developers, DevOps Engineers, an UI/UX Designer, and Enterprise Software Sales Executives. CrossChx has deployed their software from 1 hospital in late 2013 to 70+ hospitals today.
We were able to test the waters in mobile apps by partnering with NoWait, a mobile application that allows a consumer to remotely get in line at their favorite casual eatery. The app enables users to check wait times and place their name on the wait list without ever leaving their home. To date, NoWait has served more than 90 million guests and thousands of restaurant partners in all 50 states. We were fortunate to recruit three software engineers for them.
Integrity dove even further into mobile apps with Beam Technologies, a data digital consumer health company to source and recruit a number of new employees in less than five weeks. Beam's technology collects data about a user's daily hygiene through its Beam brush and displays it on a connected smartphone app. The sensor-outfitted brush measures how often and how long a person brushes. It then communicates with the mobile app to start a two-minute timer when brushing begins. During that timeframe, users can listen to music or watch video clips from other apps while brushing. We were able to place IOS Developers, Android Engineer, Director and a UI/UX Designer.
Integrity continued to partner with Dynamit, a technology focused consulting agency to hire seven Technologists this year. Dynamit builds complex data driven applications for clients like the BBC, Hilton, and Bell Helicopter. Dynamit has recently announced that they are setting up a regional office in Austin, Texas to better support their clients on the West Coast. The Austin office is the first expansion for the 10-year-old company, which has 60 employees in its home office in Columbus and expects to finish 2014 with $6.5 million in revenue.
Our greatest accomplishment this year was in July when we were able to source, recruit and build a data visualization software team of eight Technologists in four weeks. We hired four Software Engineers, an IOS Lead Developer, an UI/UX Ninja, a Technical Lead Engineer, and a Product Manager.
Aver Informatics, a healthcare analytics software company develops easy-to-use bundled payment tools to improve cost efficiencies in the healthcare industry. After moving this summer from Green Bay to Columbus, Integrity was able to complete seven searches with Aver. We hired Software Engineers, Healthcare Data Analysts, a Tech Director and a Senior Project Manager.
ClearPath, a healthcare software company, located in Dayton, is completely revolutionizing the dermatopathology industry. Their mobile app digitizes the entire experience, providing the dermatologist with an efficient, easy to use tablet for specimen submission and viewing of clinical images. We helped ClearPath hire three Software Engineers and one DevOps Engineer.
Integrity’s most challenging search assignment came in October when we competed a Big Data Architect search. The search was for a predictive modeling mathematician billionaire who places bets globally on sporting events. This national search was completed in less than four weeks.
The year 2014 was a truly energizing and successful year. Our emphasis this year was to focus on providing exceptional service to both employers and employees. I believe all the above-mentioned success was because, we in turn, were able to gain our clients’ trust and confidence. It is with much gratitude to both our candidates and clients, we had a truly successful year and look forward to our exceptional relationships and continued growth.
