Arcweb Technologies Looks Back at 2016

No matter how you look at it, 2016 has been quite a year. Current events aside, we wanted to take a moment and share some of our 2016. This is our year in review…

This year we made the 2016 Inc. 500/5000 for the first time, ranking as the 290th fastest growing company in the country, the 24th fastest in the software industry, the 5th fastest in Philadelphia and the 7th fastest in Pennsylvania.

We added seven new team members this year, bringing our full-time equivalent headcount to 32.

We increased focus and growth in our core practice areas of healthcare and financial services.


And speaking of healthcare, we launched HealthWire this year. HealthWire is a weekly curation of the most important headlines impacting innovation in the healthcare space. If you or your organization touches the patient journey, HealthWire is news you can use. And it’s free to subscribe!

Arcweb Technologies team members published thought pieces in a variety of media outlets including American Banker and the Philadelphia Business Journal on topics ranging from the moral implications of the internet of things to the evolution of what jobs consumers hire banks to do.

We supported the design, development and launch of Perseus Mirrors, an intelligent mirror startup. (Perseus won this year’s Pennvention Arcweb Award too.)

50 on fire

The Philadelphia Business Journal named us a Best Place to Work and one of the city’s 50 on Fire.

Arcwebers volunteered to support this year’s Hopeworks ‘n Camden hackathon.

We made the “Philly 100” list for the second year in a row, ranking as the region’s 15th fastest growing company.

We launched a fresh fruit initiative for our employees to promote healthy eating at the office. (Set one up at your company with Fruit Guys!)

SmartCEO named us a “Cornerstone Award” winner and “Corporate Culture Award” winner.

Arcweb Technologies CEO Chris Cera was recognized by the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce as 2016’s “Small Business Person of the Year.”

Arcwebers Mike Balcerzak, Max Furman and Ryan Sailor won Air Liquide’s hackathon.

We made Chappiecast, a handy tool that allows you to play a single video across multiple device screens like mobile phones and tablets.

We were named a 2016 Red Herring 100 Finalist.

To dig into the capabilities of React Native, we built and launched StockAlert, a stock-tracking mobile app for iOS and Android. (Read the post for our take on the framework.)

We grew our Product Hacker community by 300 percent.

We hosted Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney for a special Keystone Innovation Zone announcement in March.

We built Tally, a custom paid time off tracking tool.

Ultimately, we’re pretty proud of our 2016 and we look forward to an awesome 2017 in which we keep doing what we do best: building products people love.
