Web and Mobile Businesses
“Imagine if…” It was those two words that launched the Left story in 2010. Imagine if they could build a company built on innovation and ideas, where thinking differently was cherished rather than chastised. Imagine if they could leverage technology, marketing, and automation to build businesses of real and lasting value. Imagine if what they built made a difference to their families, their Community, and the world at large.
Left dreams of a world where every person on the planet has the ability to connect, without worrying about expensive data plans or infrastructure creation. By providing equal opportunities to connect, they believe they can facilitate empowerment and new opportunities for individuals. From students in Bangladesh to farmers in Malawi, the sharing of knowledge and ideas will amount to amazing changes in the world around them.

They specialize in combining geo-tag location data with other important social attributes of food products, including certifications and verified claims.

Information that is transparent, and relevant.
Their mission is provide value and insight throughout the supply chain and to empower shoppers with information behind the products they buy. It doesn't matter if it's a shopper in a grocery store looking for local, a grocer looking for the next great product their customers will want to buy, or a producer wanting to get their product to the right audience, the needed information exists and Localize will help people find it. Through good information, people will make better decisions that align with their values, and the world will be shaped accordingly. It's as simple as that.
Traction on Demand
IT Software & Services/Web Design
Traction is a CRM consulting and software development firm with unparalleled expertise in Salesforce.com implementations, data quality and marketing automation. Traction streamlines business processes by bending cloud-based technologies around business users. The enemy is redundancy. The results: Traction removes barriers to success and ultimately increases customers’ bottom line through sales, marketing, services and operational alignment.
Traction has six founding values: Create Connections, Pursue Opportunity, Seek Adventures and Smiles, Build Community, Healthy Hearts and Minds, and Do the Right Thing. Too often company values are no more than marketing slogans, where preaching and practice are misaligned. Tractionites are insistent on living and operating by a set of values. Values that are hung on the wall not as art, but as an everyday reminder of why we’re here. Traction seeks to support and improve companies that are living and operating by a similar set of values and at the same time inspire others to make the changes that will provide purpose beyond profit. This change comes with the realization that people deal with people, not the companies they work for. Actual results and benefits must be realized, not just talked about to win a new client. Tractionites have fun tackling large and difficult problems and laugh as much as possible.
