Our Story

Sam Hotchkiss, our founder, started Call2test after a friend received a DUI and shared his experience. At the time the check-in process utilized outdated, phone-based tools and answering machines. Sam knew he could disrupt the existing systems by utilizing newer technology. Early in the process he would meet Ed Larson, an investor with a long history in the telco industry. The two would go on to found Call2test, a revolutionary tool for automated and randomized drug court check-ins.

2018 would see the release of ConnectComply, an app-based tool for participants to check in with a selfie. In 2019, Call2test rebranded as Reconnect and released an overhauled version of the app, now known as Reconnect Community.  Features such as in-app video calls, participant benchmarks, curfew tools, self-report forms, and more have all been introduced to the platform. In 2021, Pete Andrews was named as Reconnect’s CEO bringing 20 years of industry experience to the role.
