Many business owners are just learning about the real benefits of custom application solutions. From specialized operations for brands to time-saving solutions for working parents, the tech world is leading the way into a truly more efficient society. ittybam, an Oklahoma City-based tech consulting company, has created a new product that is poised to revolutionize the way child welfare specialists connect with potential foster parents. The CEO, Daniel France, is on a mission to make these communications exponentially faster, freeing up time for busy child advocates on both ends of the application.
Daniel France and his company, ittybam, have worked with many recognizable brands, including Kia, Caterpillar, Summit Web Conferences, and even presidential campaigns. A prominent member of the Oklahoma tech landscape for about ten years, he quickly moved from sales to management, eventually taking over a small development shop. Soon after, he became the founder of FilmFreeway, the largest film submission service in the world. “It helps filmmakers to submit their works to multiple film festivals at once, view their status and awards. Most importantly, it protects their film from being distributed without their consent,” he elaborated. “It also allows festivals to quickly tell their story, create segments and accept submissions with varying pricing, and to invite their team to judge those submissions from the app.”
The company’s maxim is straightforward: We. Build. Cool. Shit. Entrepreneurship has been a serial component of France’s life. “Starting ittybam was just the logical step to continue building great products until I could create a new service for the world.” That new service aimed at changing the world is Actovos. “ We believe we will be able to take this solution to other states to help their teams make more informed decisions, and do it faster,” France said. Over the next year, in addition to a growing team and new client endeavors, a high priority for ittybam will be enhancing Actovos for new clients and extending its capabilities to help other industries.
As a part of the StarSpace46 prequel operation, The404, France made the leap to the new facility as one of the founding members. “The connections and relationships we’ve made here have helped propel us to where we are now. They provided us opportunities with new clients, and also resources to help us keep those clients happy,” he said. “If we hadn't been at StarSpace46, I highly doubt we would have had the opportunity to attract the State of Oklahoma to Actovos.”
