My Favorite Tech


Kathy Hust, a former wireless industry executive, now helps lead Milwaukee-based startup Scanalytics Inc. as its president. Founded in 2013, Scanalytics measures human behavior with intelligent floor sensors and a predictive analytics platform that can be deployed in commercial, retail and home environments. Both personally and professionally, Hust relies on a few tech tools to keep her productive and focused. Here are some of her go-to apps:     


“As an avid cyclist, the Strava App (Strava is Swedish for ’strive’) is a great tool to keep track of my ride metrics and performance. On a regular basis, I dig deep into the data to understand where there are opportunities to build on strengths and areas of desired improvement. It also has built-in beacon technology in case of an emergency.”


“Slack is my preferred app to facilitate team communication. It’s a terrific resource for groups that are managing multiple projects. Slack helps to organize projects, keep the team focused and deliver on expectations.” 

Apple Watch

“I love my Apple Watch! It keeps me on track with my personal, professional and fitness goals and provides constant communication with family, friends and colleagues. When used with GPS and fitness/health apps, I can optimize workouts and get the most out of the day.” 


“Working in and around tech startups, I am naturally curious about technical advances, as well as staying current with innovations that are on the forefront of ‘the possible.’ The Futurism app provides fascinating daily updates in areas of science, technology, climate change, medical advances, finance, space exploration and more.”
