CodeTank Labs combines two firms that were long-time collaborators

They’ve been collaborating for a long time, frequently serving the same customers.

Now, Andrew May of ADM Software Consulting and Dave Levi of Double Apps Inc. are combining their companies under a single brand that will go by the name of CodeTank Labs.

“We’ve been silently building it,” May told us recently. “We want to help start-ups grow, and this approach allows us to provide development services in a more efficient way.”

We first profiled May’s work in a June 2015 article on when he described relocating in 2006 from Arizona at the request of Anderson News, his employer. When the company was facing shutdown, May decided to strike-out on his own, founding ADM Software with an initial focus on social media aggregation. He later jumped to mobile apps development business, focusing on Android devices.

By comparison, Levi’s Double Apps provides app development services for iOS devices and also develops games for the iPhone and iPad.

“We’ve been working with the same clients for five years,” May explained. “We had a whole shop without the combination.”

Both May and Levi have been winding down their separate entities.

“Having a partner helps,” May says.

The combined company has added Brad Miller as Marketing Director.

A key priority for CodeTank Labs is to avoid a problem that has plagued many companies that have engaged software firms.

“They have been burned by overseas developers,” May said. “Every member of our team lives and works right here in the state of Tennessee. We never outsource our builds but keep them in-house so we can control the quality and delivery of your application.”

The combined company’s existing clients include Knoxville-based Perfect Serve and Paradym, Raleigh-based FieldX, and nationally-known H&R Block.
