How Blue Cow Came to Be
Working in his family’s heating oil business, Mark Nardone gained firsthand knowledge into all aspects of running an energy company. This allowed him to identify challenges and roadblocks, and to apply his expertise in software to solving the problems of efficient business management.
Mark founded Blue Cow Software in 2004 with the goal of creating software that would provide powerful – yet practical – tools for heating oil and propane dealers. This led to the development of the Ignite® software family, with components designed to improve efficiency and put control of business operations into a bundled suite that was easy to use, and could grow with the business.
Today Blue Cow Software is the business management software suite of choice for more than 250 of the country’s leading propane and heating oil companies. We continue to stay on top of industry trends and best practices, incorporating updates and upgrades across the Ignite® suite to better help our users gain even stronger control over their business operations.
Where Did the Name Blue Cow Come From?
When founder Mark Nardone started our company, he struggled to find the right name for the enterprise. The topic even came up during a long family car ride to a favorite spot in the New Hampshire mountains. While Mark was debating the merits of several names with his wife, their daughter chimed in from the back seat, “I see a blue cow! Why don’t you call it ‘Blue Cow’?” Problem solved.
