We are restaurant owners just like you, but we also have a background in the software industry.  We were tired of not having daily visibility into our business and wasting too much time and money on services that were not directly related to serving our customers.  So, we built The Daily Pulse.  You will be amazed at what we were able to accomplish.

Jared Bratsky, Board Member

Jared received his Masters in Computer Science from Montana State University and has worked in the software development world for over 13 years.  He is also the co-owner of two restaurants.  The combination of these has led him to see the need for a restaurant management software that is easy to use and gives daily figures, allowing owners to run a more efficient business and better serve their customers.  From this came the idea for The Daily Pulse.

Jared continues to work in Bozeman in both the restaurant and software industries.
