Our Story and Team


Sockeye Technologies Incorporated (“SockTech”) launched in 2014 to address an acute shortage of software built specifically to support the efforts in simplifying work order scheduling and managing crew utilization.

Working directly with organizations over the past 20 years, Sockeye founders realized a need to fix the lack of scheduling functionality in CMMS software, by offering a solution that integrates directly, producing real-time data and an easy to use interface that automates the work order scheduling process.
