James L. Morse—who sold computer timesharing on what were called “minicomputers” at the time—founded Morse Data in 1975. As computers became smaller and individual business ownership of computers became common, Morse Data sold software and hardware to businesses across the country. The first software was “Morse Data Orders System”, a grass roots order management product. As computer costs dropped and power increased, re-writing of the order management system took place. The year was1988 and programming of Morse Data’s second software product, BookMark, began.
State of the art for the time, BookMark meant that Morse Data customers were running the same software application, which allowed Morse Data to upgrade customers with new features, thus extending the life of the application and giving their customers long term value for their investment. By 1992 Morse Data Corporation had doubled in size and BookMark was a leading order management system across the country.
By 1995 James Morse could see big changes taking place in software in parallel with the light speed success of Windows. By 1998, Morse and head of programming, Tony Marchese, decided to author a Windows-based application.
In 2001 Morse Data introduced InOrder - a new product launched into the heart of the “dot com boom (and bust.) “That was one tough storm to weather as a company,” Morse said. But by the end of 2004, InOrder sales were rising and Morse Data was firmly back on track.
Today Morse Data maintains its headquarters in Dover, NH, with programming and support in Chicago, IL. InOrder prides itself on being the premier Enterprise Management System in America. James Morse continues to lead Morse Data and its team of professionals into the future with forethought and experience.
