Founded In 1993, EcoInteractive was formed in Davis, California as a response to the growing need for subject-matter experts to serve as consultants for government agencies and for businesses that interact with government agencies.
Eco initially specialized in providing consulting services and building leading-edge, highly customized, engagement-based software solutions. Starting with a single client in California, it quickly became apparent that the innovative, one-off solutions could be game-changers for not just a single client, but for many clients at scale.
This revelation catalyzed Eco to transition it’s custom-built, one-off software tools from consulting engagements to a standardized Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform. Coupling the new standard SaaS platform with Eco’s deep, subject-matter expertise within the transportation and environmental government spaces allowed the firm to expand its portfolio throughout California and later, the rest of the country.
Today, Eco is a nationally trusted SaaS provider for transportation and environmental government agencies in 12 states.
