“Crossing the Chasm” is a very popular book about technology adoption. At ChasmTech, we believe that technology worth adopting is technology that assists people in how they work best, rather than disrupts how they work. We help innovative organizations cross the gap between their vision and technology.

ChasmTech has offices in the U.S. and Canada. Founded in 2009 by veterans from geographic information systems (GIS), computer aided design (CAD), database and computer storage industries, it focuses on smart technologies to offer practical field solutions.
