We created CompanyCam by accident. Well, not really, but it did become a tangible product for other people to use by happy accident.
You see, way back in the day circa 2014 our fearless leader, Luke Hansen, was working for his family’s roofing business managing roofing, siding, and gutter crews. Luke was having a hard time getting his crews to send him the documentation he needed for each site, including pictures, notes about certain issues, and more. He searched high and low all over the interwebs to try and find an app or a software that did what he wanted, but alas, there was no such program.
That’s when Luke said fr*ck it and decided he would just make it himself—and by make it himself, we mean he hired someone to do it. Luke spent some time with a local development shop nailing down the specifics of what he wanted for his family’s business and in no time, the first version of CompanyCam was born. And it was magical.
Well, not really. It got the job done, but it still needed some work. That’s where Chad comes in.
When Luke saw the potential reach that CompanyCam might have with other roofing companies, and even companies in other industries, he decided to strike out on his own and try to make something of CompanyCam. He went to Omaha Startup Weekend and it was there that he met Chad Wilken. It was dev at first sight. They hit it off and Chad was quickly hired to develop the app into something magnificent.
Not long after, the development team continued to grow and more and more wizards were brought on to make the app more intuitive, better looking, and overall more impressive. And with an impressive app come the teams who aim to sell–sales and marketing.
Now, in 2018, CompanyCam is the real deal. A fully formed business that integrates with other industry leading software programs, employs 29 full time team members, and is consistently improving upon itself to offer customers a better, more productive experience.
And we’re not done yet.
