Our origin Story
Two years ago, a father and son were approached by some friends who were frustrated by their need as small business leaders to collaborate with their team members and to survive managing daily tasks from hired freelancers and the changing economy. Other collaboration applications out there were just too expensive and complicated.
Since William and his son Michael had both been independently running their own small businesses, they agreed they wanted to help. Together, they began exploring the problem more deeply. Realizing that both were experts in their field they could work together and develop the solution together.
William Cook graduated from West Point and served as a young US Army officer. Since then, he has led and collaborated on many multi-billion dollar engineering projects as well as developed his own engineering firm, Intelligent Systems Research, Inc. William has consistently made building great software ‘systems that think’ a reality.. (CEO - William Cook Background)
