Crowd-funding campaign to benefit Ukrainian workers

9yahds Inc., a software company residing in dual locations, Byfield and Easthampton, started a crowd-funding campaign on a site called for the benefit of their Ukrainian developers. Funds raised through this campaign will be slated for additional product features to keep the Ukrainian team working during a time when economic growth is a valuable way to show support for business between these two countries.

With the skills of a three-member team from Redwerks, 9yahds Inc. launched a new process design cloud application recently. Just as their work with the developers was winding down, the unrest in Kiev was heating up. Closing Redwerk’s main office in Kiev, 9yahds’ team relocated to Zaporozhye, about 500 km south, and continued to support final details of the project. Founders Pam Simpson and Paul McIsaac’s concerns for their team spurred the creation of the “9yahds-Help Make Work Easier!” campaign.

Visit and search “9yahds” or visit and enter the campaign through their blog entry about the campaign. The site shares a video of the software, which allows you to build, run and track any process involving people with steps to follow. With the success of the campaign, they will put Redwerks to work on a mobile application and other features to make the solution even better, all spelled out in the campaign as well.
