Client Projects


Project Management & Workflow Application

For a drone services company, we used Knack & Zapier to create a comprehensive project management platform that automates the workflow of orders throughout all company departments.  This solution involves multiple related tables, many different role-based views, and automated tasks, among other advanced features.


Local Resources Database

This handy app was built using Knack to track and manage information for a specific type of local resource. Data was scraped from a public website, massaged into appropriate format in Excel, and imported into Knack. The app uses Knack’s built-in mapping tools to represent the data geographically.
