Arbormoon Software grows with work in beacon projects, watch apps

Arbormoon Software isn't the little software firm that could. It's a small business that did. Or, at least, is doing it.

The downtown Ann Arbor-based company recently was recognized as a FastTrack award winner for the third consecutive year. That means it had at least six-figure revenues with an annual growth of 20 percent for the previous three years. Arbormoon Software has accomplished this for three years running.

The company's leadership[ chalks that success to its work of creating mobile apps that have huge amounts of downloads, such as creating the apps for Weather Underground and XanEdu. "We're small but we have a lot more reach than larger companies," says Dave Koziol, president of Arbormoon Software.

The 11-year-old firm offers a comprehensive set of services for creating custom mobile apps. That work allowed it to move into a larger office last year and hire a couple of software developers, expanding its staff to a dozen people.

Arbormoon Software has also been working on creating software for new technology. For instance it has produced a couple of apps for mobile phones worn as watches. It is also working on beacon technology projects that help enhance mobile signals in places with limited receptions, such as large buildings.

"We're pushing the technology envelope and seeing how things evolve," Koziol says. "We're on the bleeding edge of technology looking for new things."
