About Gary Hoff
Gary Hoff graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College with a BA in Physics in 1974. In 1978 he started his computer software career working for DCD Company, a Minneapolis based software company where he worked on a variety of business software applications. There he took on the successful project of converting their Job Shop Manufacturing System from a IBM System/34 in RPG to a IBM 5110 in BASIC.
In 1980 he started a software consulting company and wrote custom applications for a number of companies, including manufacturing, distribution, hotel management, garment printing, construction and a credit union.
In 1983 Mr. Hoff and another partner started Emphasys, Inc. to develop and sell a software compiler that would run BASIC programs written for the IBM System/23 and System/36 on the newly introduced IBM PC. By selling to the army of developers IBM had cultivated over the years, Emphasys grew to over 30 employees. Mr. Hoff also designed (with the help and review of Greg Gershuny of the Bears) and wrote SuperStat on Unix. SuperStat was the statistical reporting software for the NFL, which was used from 1988 to 1998 to capture game statistics real time by all 30 NFL teams, and at a number of colleges. This is a sophisticated product that took over two years to develop.
In 1992 Mr. Hoff started Precise Software, Inc. to develop an application for the garment printing industry. With over a million lines of code, the product, “Impress” became the leading product in the industry. After growing the business to over 100 customers and 10 employees, he sold the business in 2005..
Since then, he has been providing consulting and software services to a variety of companies all over the United States.
Mr. Hoff has provided software services to many companies over the years, including:
He has been supporting some customers for over 25 years.
