Founded in 1989 in among the shaded oaks and dignified colonial architecture of Gainesville, Florida's historic downtown district, Blade Software, Inc.® has grown from only a few part-time developers specializing in consulting work to become a leading producer of software solutions in the fields of online entertainment and project planning.

Diverse, Multidisciplinary Experience

With nearly two decades of combined development experience, BSI's team of world-class developers bring a diverse, multidisciplinary array of training to our projects, with training and experience ranging from linguistics and classical studies to computer science, engineering, networking, embedded systems development, and advanced mathematics.

Leading-Edge Technology

Blade Software specializes in development based on Microsoft technologies. Our current projects are based on Microsoft's cutting-edge .NET 2.0 framework, and heavily leverage other Microsoft technologies and applications, including SQL Server, Windows Server 2003, and ASP.NET.

A History of Innovation

In addition to BSI's current projects, some of our past projects include:
  • Comfort Calculator®:
    Comfort Calculator was an innovative software application designed to calculate needed function space for large social events. Unlike other function-space calculators, Comfort Calculator allowed for the use of industry standard seating guidelines, and could automatically reserve space for buffet tables, staging, and A/V equipment.
  • CAD/EM®:
    The Computer-Aided Design & Event Management Software System. CAD/EM's innovative technology was awarded a U.S. patent (U.S. Patent No. 5,634,016; registered May 27th, 1997).
  • Visual 360®:
    Visual 360 was developed by Blade Software as a highly configurable software solution for performance appraisals and 360-degree feedback assessments. Visual 360's innovative technology and user interface resulted in U.S. Patent No. 5,926,794 (Registered July 20th, 1999). This patented Drag-and-Drop technology was initially developed for a Blade Software client, the Alza Corporation, and is currently featured as an integral component of MindSolve Technologies' MVP Performance Management software suite.
