Keyhole Labs

We’re in software consulting because we like creating software. For some time, we have been developing internal software to support our own development. This has led to the creation of numerous software solutions: GrokOla, the tribal knowledge wiki; MockOla, the drag-and-drop wireframing tool; Trouble Maker, the Microservices tool to test software stability; and others.

In November of 2016, we announced the creation of Keyhole Labs, the product and innovation arm of Keyhole Software. Since that time, we have shifted many of our open source and products to that side of the organization.
