Wipfli helps speed liftoff of DocLaunch

Monday, November 20, 2017

Through critical development assistance from Wipfli/SpiderLogic, and access to Microsoft’s Azure cloud computing platform, DocLaunch is poised to deploy its blockchain-powered documentation management software in December.

Wipfli, one of the country’s largest accounting and consulting firms, collaborated with DocLaunch in August as part of their commitment to supporting viable blockchain technologies. Access to Wipfli/SpiderLogic and their 200 engineers accelerated DocLaunch’s on-ramp.

“Blockchain is going to revolutionize core business functions like accounting in the next five to ten years, which is why we were eager to work with DocLaunch to bring their software to market as quickly as possible,” said Wipfli’s FinTech Senior Manager Girish Ramachandra.

Known primarily for its role in the creation and growth of Bitcoin, blockchain applications outside of the crypto currency realm have been long promised for the finance, health care and government sectors. Milwaukee-based startup DocLaunch, LLC will soon release what it believes to be the first enterprise SaaS solution powered by blockchain technology.

“DocLaunch is nothing if not ambitious – our goal is to provide the most robust documentation management software enterprise customers around the globe have ever seen,” said DocLaunch Founder Michael Adam. “The support of Wipfli and SpiderLogic allowed us to move up our development timeline by months. They were instrumental in ensuring the platform is capable of managing complex documentation and payments ecosystems using blockchain and distributed ledger technology.”
