Our clients do amazing things.

Roommates.com

As a market leader, Roommates.com hired the SPARK team to create a completely new mobile-friendly user experience that future-proofed their product's unique value. SPARK also developed new security and messaging tools along with launching a redesigned product admin portal.

Write About

A startup wanted to disrupt K-12 classroom literacy with a SaaS platform. In addition to designing a seamless front-end experience, SPARK built an infrastructure that scaled to 200,000+ users and helped Write About be selected as the “#1 Edtech Tool to Try” over products from Google and Amazon.

Fulton & Sons

Fulton used to track over 1,000 pieces of paper per week, had limited insight into equipment maintenance, and manually generated weekly client updates. Now, their mobile employee app automates back-end systems, generates weekly updates, and makes job site management visible.

MyObits

When business partners saw an opportunity for a digital disruption in their industry (funeral and cremation service), they partnered with SPARK to launch a mobile consumer community and custom e-commerce platform that achieved a return on investment in just a few short months.

Andy J. Egan

The Andy J. Egan Company, a growing mechanical contractor, needed to manage job assignments for a workforce of over 300. SPARK helped them launch an automated scheduling workflow with mobile-friendly time entry and compliance checks.

Esper Electric

When Esper needed to significantly reduce administrative overhead and increase employee engagement, they turned to SPARK to launch a custom management system and employee app with streamlined time entry, performance tracking, and automated business processes.

CodeGuard

To reach more customers, CodeGuard needed to create a better registration process and overhaul an internal dashboard. SPARK also created updated brand standard guides for the CodeGuard to showcase their bold identity.

Your solution starts with a conversation.
