FortyAU Joins Catalyst HTI

Posted by Mike Biselli on 9.26.2019

Nashville, TNFortyAU, a software development consulting company founded in Nashville, TN, announced this month the opening of their second office at Catalyst HTI. With over six years of experience building custom software in the healthcare industry, the FortyAU team has grown to 50+ on-shore developers serving clients including HCA (HealthOne), Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and the Center for Medical Interoperability (C4MI).

The team has been doing business in Colorado’s health tech ecosystem for a year prior to choosing Catalyst. “Part of what makes our projects successful is that we put developers in the same room with our clients,” says CEO, Andrew Kerr. “We have seen the biggest impact when our clients sit at the table with our developers, tell us their goals, and let us understand the context of the issue they may be facing. We want to get as close to the problem as possible, and believe that human connection is still important when creating software solutions.”

FortyAU admits their placement at Catalyst is strategic. Their client portfolio is diverse; it includes everything from computer vision, machine learning, and enterprise-wide workflow management tools. “We are trying to strike a balance. We are a flexible choice for large-scale companies that want to augment their existing teams but we are also a cost-conscious, competitive choice for startups that need to scale up or down quickly,” says Kerr.

“FortyAU’s experience in building software for both healthcare enterprise and startup makes them an ideal community member at Catalyst,” says Mike Biselli. “They are uniquely positioned to be fuel for the innovation we are making happen here. They have a great reputation coming out of Nashville, and I am excited to see them officially join the broader Colorado community.”
