How We Got Here
1980 The Beginning
Native Oregonians, Dan and Judie Nesmith moved to Bend in 1980 for the abundant blue skies and recreational lifestyle. As business computers were becoming more common, Dan saw the need for a computerized point of sale software solution for the hardware store and lumber/building industries. Within a few months, he was writing code and collaborating with friends to develop our first software product.
Mid-1980s New Heights
By the mid-1980s, our software was in many stores and was exchanging supplier information electronically using EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) — an advanced technology for the time.
1990 Business-Built Intelligence
In 1990, we introduced new inventory management features that were revolutionary in the business software world.
Mid-1990's Time to Take Flight
By the mid-1990s, our company was ready to expand beyond the Pacific Northwest. To make this opportunity a reality, Dan and Judie became private pilots and bought an airplane.
2005 A Technology Makeover
In the mid-2000s, we took the knowledge gained from 25 years of experience and created a completely new business software package for the Windows platform.
2007 Taking Us to a New Level
In 2007, Mike Williamson became our general manager and brought his great intuition and business skills.
2015 Rapid Growth
We purchased a 4.7-acre corporate campus in Bend, Oregon, with 27,000 square feet of office space and an additional 15,000 square feet available for future expansion.
