FIVE PACK CREATIVE ALT-U DEVELOPMENT EDUCATION: Short for Alternative

University, ALT-U classes are taught by our top developers, drawing from their own experiences so “students” can increase their mobile app skills.

How does your company differentiate itself from others in the region?

In its simplest form, what is innovation to you? Innovation is recognizing there is a better way to solve an important customer problem and then converting that approach into revenues that drive growth. Whether it is being the first to market with an app for Apple Watch or building apps with the latest hot technologies such as Augmented Reality or Machine Learning, we pride ourselves in partnering with our customers to bring innovation to life.

Tell us about your company’s products or services. Five Pack Creative (FPC) is a mobile app development agency based out of Frisco, and we have been building beautiful, innovative mobile apps since 2008. We’ve worked on hundreds of apps over the years, across multiple industries and have had the pleasure of working with companies such as American Airlines, Match.com, One Technologies and the United Way to name a few. We focus on providing: CUSTOM APP DEVELOPMENT: We partner with a company to build a custom app by leveraging our in-house expertise from product strategy, UX/UI design, development, testing, and launch to maintenance. AUGMENTED ENGINEERING RESOURCES: We partner with companies to solve the challenge of finding the right talent to deliver mobile apps through contract, contract to hire and direct hire placement. HOURS TIME TRACKING: We recently acquired “Hours Time Tracking” which is a leader in the time tracking space and is designed to take the pain out of project-level time tracking for individuals or teams.

Clients tell us that they come to us because they have seen our work and are wowed by it. They cite the combination of innovation and beautiful design with our passion and ability to provide access to talented people who are easy to work with. Plus, we can provide all aspects of creating a custom app or provide you with the engineering resources needed to help you build your own app in house.

What type of opportunities exist for innovative thinkers looking to join your company or industry? If you have a passion and the know-how to create world class mobile apps, we would love to talk to you. If you have the passion, but need to gain more experience and know how, we have a program called “Alt-U” that is specifically designed to help train on the latest technology and can serve as a way to onboard with us.

What steps are you taking to ensure continued growth? In order for us to have sustained growth, we recognized the need to invest in our operations and leadership team. In late 2015, we added four partners with a focus on driving Operations, Finance, Technology and Architecture. Most recently we added Ian Campbell as our Executive Partner. Ian brings close to 30 years of experience in the software space. We believe this investment in leadership along with our continued commitment to solving for our customer will enable us to further enhance our current growth trajectory.
