The Better Software Company: Our Story

Meet the people behind The Better Software Company.

The Better Software Company thinks business can change the world.

To begin, our overall goal as a franchise software solution company is to make things better for franchisers. To do this, we have created software that is customizable, adaptable, simple, and intuitive. So even if we built the software, it feels and looks just the way your business does. With such ensured success, we can make business better. Whether it is by helping, companies grow and generate more jobs, or providing a platform that gives you peace of mind. Trust us; we’ve been there, the long nights, lost documents, last-minute problems on the job. We help you so that you can help others, and they can help even more.

Helping people makes things better, so we’re getting the ball rolling.

Our background

At 17, our CEO, Steve Cody, stepped into the business world with nothing but a bucket, a squeegee, and a dream. With a generous $1,200 saved up from his grandfather, he commenced his window washing company and never looked back.

Then, though window washing wasn’t the end, Steve moved from industry to industry, equipped with more experience and expertise at every new beginning. One thing never changed: In every business he started, he played all the parts. With every new venture, Steve was the integration guy, IT department, training guru, and head troubleshooter. Every new franchise called for a different software, and none of the systems were compatible with the verticals of various industries. The lack of automation continuously hindered his ability to scale and affected his success. He and his staff were forced to manually input information to multiple systems, which created errors at a high cost. Important details were missed, and customer service suffered.

Steve Cody founded The Better Software Company to give other franchise business owners the chance to learn from his experience and streamline their franchises.

Finally, Bruce Linton, our co-founder, has a passion for entrepreneurship and making a positive difference in the world. He brings a wealth of experience in building influential technology companies, building world-class teams, and positioning his companies to deliver exceptional customer value and service. Bruce is the Founder of Canopy (CGC), Co-Chairman and past CEO of Martello Technologies, and Co-founder of Ruckify & Better Software.

Culture drives The Better Sofware.

Finally, perseverance; integrity; indomitable spirit. Having the ability to stand up, dust off, and push forward. To be true to oneself. To never yield to circumstances, but instead, stand defiant against them. Some people have these as part of who they are. For most, these are shared with those beside you. It’s difficult to stand alone – it is easy to stand together. Culture is what lets a team get back up after stumbling. It is the culture that enables an organization to heal.

Culture is what lets a company triumph.

We know what we’re doing.

Therefore, with 30+ years of experience as franchise business owners in 15 different industries, we know what we’re doing. Our team believes that running a multi-location business should be as simple as running a small one, and we’re here to equip franchisors with the best franchise management tool. That is why we want to improve business for everyone – from CEO to cashier.
