If disruption is the foundation of entrepreneurialism, then technology is the framework disruptive entrepreneurs build on.

But in an age where there is an app for everything or a technological fix for business owners looking to do something new, what happens when the digital shoe doesn’t quite fit?

For Ky Ekinci and the team at Office Divvy, the answer is simple: disrupt the disruptors.

To that end, the business percolator in Palm Coast recently unveiled a new proprietary web calendar app to schedule and manage the shared office space that is at the heart of the company’s mission. In doing so, Ekinci, along with team members Kaitlin Taing, Bailey Granam and Trenton Moore, exemplify the idea that necessity is the mother of invention.

“Very early on, we used a third-party service to manage space but it wasn’t the ideal situation so we made it work for what we were doing,” Ekinci said.

While the off-the-shelf app was serviceable, it didn’t address all of the company’s needs and offered an opportunity to pursue some new ideas.

“We had like probably six or seven app ideas,” Ekinci said. The idea for a space-sharing calendar app was something that could be tackled relatively simply and it moved to the front of the line.

“It wasn’t the biggest pain point but it was the lowest-hanging fruit in terms of making the biggest difference to our clients as well as our internal users in terms of key performance indicators, in terms of management tasks, reporting and billing and such,” Ekinci said.
