a brief history...Lodge-ical is 23 years young in 2017!
Williamson Enterprises, Inc. is owned by a husband and wife team. They've been developing software together since 1993 and have been in the software business combined for (well, let's not go there!). In 1993, they took their honeymoon at Hubbard's Yellowstone Lodge, an Orvis-endorsed fly fishing lodge located in the Paradise Valley area of Montana. At the end of their honeymoon the owner offered them jobs to return the next year to manage the lodge. Additionally, they agreed to develop a reservation management software application for them. In 1994, they moved from Connecticut to Montana, managed the lodge for three years, and developed Lodge-ical - the first, the original, the founding software for fishing, hunting, wingshooting, guest ranches, and outfitters .
