What's in a name? We've been The Dude since day one Our name was inspired by a story we all know: That person in your organization who always fixes things but is never thanked. Or even called by name. They were just the dude — that guy or gal you call when a sink overflowed or the heat went out. They came when you needed them. So at first it may be tough to take us seriously with a name like The Dude. Until you see what we can do together. And why we do it. Like when a client said our software may be the only thing to save his entire division from the chopping block. Or when a school said they save enough money each year to fund salaries for 20 teachers. So call us The Dude. We’ll be there when you need us.
