Edmonton-Based Company Launches Product to Change the Face of Corporate Communications

EDMONTON, AB – June 02, 2016 – DevFacto Technologies Inc. (DevFacto) today announced the official launch of their first product, Sparrow. Sparrow is a mobile application designed to improve the way organizations communicate, providing targeted information to employee mobile devices and sophisticated engagement analytics to managers. This innovative application is hosted on the scalable and highly-capable Microsoft Azure cloud platform.

As workforces become more mobile and communication expectations evolve, Sparrow improves employee engagement by delivering targeted corporate communications in an easy-to-use app. Employees receive relevant news, when they want it, on the device they use most. Sparrow’s sophisticated read-analytics provide value to communications, operations, compliance and other departments in a variety of industries. Sparrow integrates with existing channels ensuring little to no extra effort is required on the part of communicators.

 “As a lot of our workforce spends little time at an office desk it’s always been a challenge to keep people informed through traditional means.  Sparrow provides us the opportunity to deliver information through an easy to use and engaging mobile channel.  Best of all, Finning employees will get to choose the content that is most relevant to them. We’re thrilled to be one of the first organizations using Sparrow as it changes the way we connect and share knowledge across our team,” says Nick Culo, General Manager of Corporate Strategy, Marketing and Communications at Finning (Canada).

As an IT consulting company with offices in Edmonton, Calgary, and Regina, DevFacto is excited to launch their first of many products to the public. Sparrow has been released into the Apple App Store and Google Play Store for individual download. Organizations interested in obtaining Sparrow can contact DevFacto directly, or find more information at

“In today’s mobile working environment, our mutual customers rely on proactive solutions such as Sparrow to close the communications gap, drive engagement, and empower communications teams,” said Andrea Carl, Director, Commercial Communications, Microsoft Corp. “By leveraging the scale and speed of Microsoft Azure, Sparrow is able to drive greater business innovation and provide a much needed solution for communication professionals.”

Since 2007, DevFacto has engineered ideas and solutions for companies across Canada and around the world.
