Kicking off a2Tech360 in September 2020, Ann Arbor SPARK presented its 22nd annual FastTrack Awards to 19 companies located in Washtenaw and Livingston counties.
FastTrack Awards honor companies with consistent and substantial records of growth. Recipients of the 2020 award were required to have revenue of at least $100,000 in 2016, with an average growth of at least 20 percent for the following three years
To continue celebrating these companies, SPARK is highlighting each winner in a blog series.
DaySmart Software provides business management tools designed to make it easier for entrepreneurs in the salon, spa, pet, and tattoo industries to grow their business.
The company’s ability to quickly respond to their customers’ needs was imperative in 2020. “When COVID took hold, we quickly developed and released a video chat module so our customers could continue to deliver services to their clients.”
This is the second consecutive FastTrack Award for DaySmart. “When we moved to Ann Arbor in 2017, we did so because we wanted to be closer to what we saw as a tech mecca. We engaged early on with SPARK — they helped us find office space — and we’ve tried to stay involved ever since. We believe the SPARK awards are the best way to measure ourselves against our area peers.”
Notably, in 2020 the company made the Inc 5000 list for its tenth consecutive year. Additionally, DaySmart concluded the year with the acquisition of AppointmentPlus, an Arizona-based online appointment scheduling software provider.
