the compeat story

The Compeat story began in 2000 in New Orleans, where our founder, Harry Barkerding, realized his dream of designing a software that helped restaurants run easier. Using his own restaurant experience to design an accounting and inventory software he attracted early customers like Ground Pati, Dave and Busters, Copeland’s and That’s Amore. The Compeat team thrived in New Orleans until Hurricane Katrina hit with great force in 2005, wiping out Compeat’s office but not the Compeat team. Banding together, the entire Compeat team relocated with Harry to Dallas, Texas where one of our very own customers, Dave and Busters, was kind enough to give us a place to work as we recovered and kept our customers running. In 2006, Compeat decided to set roots in the great Austin, Texas area where music, restaurants and technology were plentiful. It was and still is our perfect home.

In 2017, we joined forces with Ctuit, adding our Petaluma office and uniting two restaurant management software market leaders. Similar to Compeat, Ctuit was founded in 2000 by Rob D’Ambrosia who designed an above store reporting software to solve a problem he was experiencing as a restauranteur. Ctuit’s early customers included Biaggis, Gott’s Roadside, Lark Creek Inn and Piatti. Over the years, Ctuit expanded their product portfolio to include inventory, COGs, schedule, mobile apps for managers and employees.

Together, we have the most comprehensive and innovative accounting, back office, workforce and intelligence portfolio in the industry and over 34 years of restaurant and technology best practices, giving restaurants a true technology partner they can trust today and for the future.
