Started in 2006, Yellow Dog Software is a proven provider of inventory management systems to the hospitality market. Our goal is to deliver a software system to our clients that allows them to work faster and smarter and help uncover areas of their business that need to be improved.  We believe that we are partners with each client and share the unified goal of getting you live with a complete and successful inventory system.  That partnership continues after go-live with a “no charge” policy for any training needed for the life of your Yellow Dog Inventory system.

Perhaps the best way to summarize our committed approach to our clients is with the following riddle: 

Question: In a bacon-and-egg breakfast, what's the difference between the Chicken and the Pig?
Answer: The Chicken is involved, but the Pig is committed!

There are lots of companies that will sell you software (Chicken).
Yellow Dog Software is one that wants to provide you with a solution (Pig).


We chose the name Yellow Dog Software based on our President's, Jay Livingood, dog named Sola.  She was a yellow dog; a mutt in terms of breed.  However, Sola exhibited the qualities every dog owner desires.  She was fiercely loyal, obedient, friendly, and always wanting to work. 

These are the core values we embody as a software company.  Loyal to our clients, obedient to the needs of our users, friendly in terms of a working relationship with customers, prospects, and partners, and a strong work ethic to ensure that our clients receive the best possible inventory solution for their business needs.  There are thousands of software companies with more impressive and intimidating names.  We choose a name that represents who we are - a loyal company that exists to serve our clients.
