The end of the year is always a great time for reflection. What did we accomplish this year? What did we learn? What will we remember? Who did we impact?
As we think back on 2019 for Formstack, it seems clear this was a pivotal year in our company’s history. We experienced notable change and growth (including a brand refresh!) and made a lot of exciting announcements.
Before we close out the year, let’s run through a quick recap of the top Formstack news from 2019.
Relocated Indiana Headquarters to Fishers
Formstack was founded in Indianapolis in 2006 and has maintained strong ties to Central Indiana even after building a large remote workforce. In February 2019, Formstack opened its new Indiana headquarters office in the Nickel Plate District in downtown Fishers, Indiana.
Shared Unified Platform Vision
Shortly after relocating to Fishers, Formstack announced its vision to become a full-stack, integrated data platform for workplace productivity. The stated vision was to use a series of strategic acquisitions to build a suite of data collection products that help transform the way businesses collect data and put it to work.
