The Origins of Stone Orchard Software
The system that eventually became Stone Orchard Software began as an accident.
Back in the early days of cemetery software, Ken Sr. was a professor of Computer Studies. Neighbours, who ran a cemetery, asked for help to purchase a computer and software to help with managing their cemetery records. An extensive search turned up no reasonable solutions that considered the unique needs of cemetery management. So, Ken Sr. wrote a program for them to use.
As other cemetery managers came to visit, they saw the software in action. Frequently, they asked for copies of the software for their own use. After a year or so, it became clear that there was a genuine need for software to truly suit the needs of cemeteries. After surveying over 100 cemetery managers and owners and incorporating their input into the design, Stone Orchard Software launched its first commercial version in 1996.
