We’re building a better way forward
And we’re not just talking about software
We want to create a culture of “we not me” both in the office, in our community, and beyond.
Making money in a responsible way allows us to continue to do good in the world.
We have a responsibility to leave the planet in better shape for future generations.
Why is this so important?
Our CSR policy isn’t about doing good for the sake of looking good. It’s about using our money and resources to make a real impact.
It’s about protecting and restoring ecosystems.
It’s about sustainable economic growth.
It’s about responsible consumption.
It’s about productive and secure employment.
It’s about gender equality, and empowering girls and women.
It’s about inclusive, accessible, quality education.
Our vision is to make corporate social responsibility normal, not exceptional.
Using profit as the sole indicator of success is not enough—we also want to measure and report on our social and environmental impact. So we built a resilient CSR policy that commits Fiix to giving 1% of our time, resources, and revenue to the commitments that make up our CSR program.
This annual report is our first step towards cementing social responsibility as a foundational part of the company’s business model.

So what are we doing?
It’s still early days but we’re making progress. Here’s a taste of what we’re doing to support our people, our community, and our planet.
Strong, sustainable growth is what allows us to give back. We donate 1% of our time, money, and resources to the community.
We have partnered with the rare Charitable Research Reserve to help preserve and restore vulnerable ecosystems and educate youth on sustainability. We’ve committed $25,000 over 5 years to support programs, research, and education.
We don’t just promote this stuff externally—we also live it. We promote an office-wide focus on sustainability, as well as mental, emotional, and physical health and wellness.
Internally, we have become 100% carbon neutral. Externally, our software helps our customers reduce emissions by maintaining equipment at its peak efficiency and monitoring energy use.
We provide our professional CMMS for free to students, to help create a tech-savvy generation working for a more efficient and environmentally friendly future.
Using a CMMS can have a massive impact on sustainability, health and safety, and job security. With this in mind, we’ve made our entry level CMMS free to anyone. So far we have provided over 35,000 free CMMS installations to people in over 90 countries.
We support continuing education by co-funding our employees’ quest for higher education and we provide post-secondary scholarships for disadvantaged youth in the community.
