Provides wearable technology for data collection and communication to help workers in challenging environments operate more safely and intelligently.
During the pandemic, Triax developed the TraceTag, a wearable device that provides proximity distancing alerts and contact tracing for workplaces and job sites. Close-contact interactions between infected workers are digitally stored in the event of Covid-19 exposure, helping clients identify potentially exposed individuals and mitigate the spread of the virus. The company's tracing technology has helped over 40,000 workers at more than 125 worksites in the U.S. and Canada. To support its own employees, Triax deploys self-service installations and leverages digital tools to assist with remote training.
Offers custom collegiate apparel and promotional products using environmentally friendly, water-based screen printing.
When the Covid-19 pandemic began, B-Unlimited created the Alliance Collection, a partnership with local businesses—including local restaurants, bars, gyms, and music venues—that allowed them to create preorder products for sale on B-Unlimited’s site. B-Unlimited would save production until after the ordering period, preventing up-front costs for the businesses while they maintained an active social media presence and generated revenue. B-Unlimited also partnered with the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank to sell T-shirts, which ultimately raised enough money to purchase 71,834 meals for families in the region.
Builds a fundraising platform for nonprofits.
When the pandemic hit, OneCause helped nonprofits pivot to virtual fundraising. Its Virtual Event Center lets nonprofits replace their in-person fundraising gala with a virtual experience, using live streaming and prerecorded content. The company’s annual Raise Conference brought together more than 6,900 nonprofit professionals to discuss how to diversify their fundraising practices. Since March 13, OneCause has helped more than 3,000 fundraising events go digital, raising more than $225 million for causes in the U.S. and Canada.
Uses virtual reality to provide a safe environment for training essential workplace skills and practicing difficult conversations.
Mursion offers VR-based training opportunities so employees of all levels can practice human skills, such as empathy, adaptability, and resilience. The company's tools have also been used by health care professionals to practice competencies such as improved clinical reasoning and enhanced bedside manner. The company worked in partnership with a major provider of pharmacy, outpatient telepsychiatry, and medication-management services as well as Tennessee’s statewide Medicaid program in order to create immersive simulation trainings for customer medication coordinators and home health care workers. Its virtuality reality scenarios are at the technological forefront of diversity, equity, and inclusion trainings. This year, the Department of Defense awarded Mursion a $6.7 million contract to create VR-enhanced trainings for students with autism and their teachers.
Quality Works Consulting Group
Advises clients on software design and strategic team building.
QualityWorks is a team of social impact developers who leverage technical talent to support changemakers and non-profits. This year, the company launched a free software testing bootcamp targeting professionals who lost their jobs because of Covid-19 and also talent from underrepresened communities to help them match their technical skills to high-paying, high-demand software testing jobs. Qualityworks also worked on SharedHarvest's myCovidMd, a free online telehealth portal that connects residents to medical professionals and resources, and collaborated with the myCovidMD team on a platform that allowed myCovidMD to manage students who wanted to volunteer to support largescale COVID-19 testing initiatives in exchange for a reduction in their student loans.
