About spud

22+ YEAR HISTORY

Derek Sommer started Spud Software in 1997, providing simple, customized software solutions. Before long, Derek built a small team and caught the attention of the likes of General Motors and MSX International. After completing several successful large-scale projects, Spud developed a reputation for delivering high quality solutions quickly but at a much lower cost than big name software companies. Over 22 years later that reputation for excellence remains intact.

“If there is anything that has made Spud successful, it is our team and their determination and hard work to make sure our clients succeed.”
