As a follow-up to their presentation at the HCN Centers Gathering at Hollyhock last month, Retreat Guru have released findings from the 2019 Tech Stack Survey. The report identifies commonly used software in key categories and highlights user satisfaction levels. If you are looking for a new app, learn which are popular. If you are already tech-deep, compare your stack with others. You might be surprised by some of their findings.
The survey was inspired by one of our popular webinars Transformation in Technology: An Esalen Case Study, hosted by CEO and General Manager Terence Gilbey in January. You can read more via the posts below.
