October 4, 2012 by James
Software technology company Connect Think, LLC, said on October 2 that it plans to expand its Indianapolis, Indiana operation – a move that will add as many as twenty-five new high-tech jobs to the local economy by 2016.
Connect Think, based in Indianapolis, specializes in creating solutions to integrate desktop, mobile, and web platforms. It plans to spend nearly a quarter-million dollars to renovate its north side facility. The company is presently hiring software engineers and programmers and intends to continue focusing on developing mobile applications.
Dan Hasler, Secretary of Commerce and CEO of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation, says that Connect Think and other similar organizations are giving Indiana the reputation of being a state where high-tech companies can succeed.
Connect Think was founded in 2010 and has clients that range from Fortune 500 giants down to startups. It developed an internal iPad application to be used by employees of the Simon Property Group nationwide and an iPhone application for Wheeler Mission – an Indianapolis concern that serves the poor and needy.
Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard said that Indianapolis adds high-tech jobs faster than many others who are competing to attract them, and companies like Connect Think are instrumental in this growth. He expressed delight that Connect Think was planning to expand its local operation and notes that other companies are locating or expanding in Indianapolis, bringing hundreds of new jobs to the city.
Connect Think could use printing companies to produce a number of products. For instance, they might need brochures to describe the company and flyers for in-house special training events.
