Our industries

As users grow and systems become more complex, there are not many industries that won’t benefit from the fault-tolerance and reliability of our distributed systems expertise. That being said, there are some industries we’ve worked with more than others. Our past experience gives us an in-depth understanding of the needs, demands and unique considerations associated with that sector.


The benefits of reliable and highly scalable tech in the healthcare industry are clear. The United Kingdom’s National Health Service handles over 65 million record requests a day with 99.999% uptime over the last 5-years using Erlang. And there are countless other stories of Erlang and Elixir providing the stability and innovation required to critical health care providers.

Social and New Media Solutions

From the high volumes of users and instances they create, to the concurrency they require and the chat systems that power them, social and new media channels require the kind of expertise in distributed systems we provide. We contributed to the early planning of WhatsApp, which is one of Erlang’s greatest success stories. Our MongooseIM enterprise Instant Messaging solution was a key part of Grindr’s tech stack. Meanwhile, other social media platforms who are not in our client base, such as Pinterest are also proud users of the BEAM.
