Firmatek, a Texas-based technology company specialising in stockpile measurement and mapping for the aggregate industry, has launched a software development department. The new group will help improve customer experience and expand Firmatek’s offerings.
Lauren Elmore, Firmatek’s president, says: “This marks a significant shift in building our abilities to maintain and improve our client experience with internal resources. These internal capabilities will allow us to better serve our clients and build the experience that they need in order to best utilise the insights we provide in their businesses.”
The software department will be led by Johnathan Leppert, who will mainly develop and manage Firmatek’s client portal with a focus on visualisation tools, automation and machine learning.
Leppert has spent most of the past four years working in the drone industry. He was a lead developer of Kespry’s cloud portal and has worked in software development roles at Airware, LinkedIn, OpenSpace, Extole, Manta, Teleperformance and Wyred.
