Hinton, Alberta may seem like a long way from nowhere, but it's actually in the heartland of the logging and oilfield businesses we serve.
In addition, its proximity to one of North America's most glorious natural gems, Jasper National Park, makes it a marvellous base from which to serve our customers. The beauty of the natural surroundings here in Hinton is great for our employees, and it provides an excellent haven for our customers as well.
We encourage our customers to escape their hectic day-to-day lives and join us for a day or two of one-on-one training here in Hinton, followed by some good R&R in the pristine Canadian Rockies!
Bob Lucke and Teresa Hannah founded Caribou Software in August of 2004, but their work history together dates back much further. They first worked together at Price Waterhouse (now known as PriceWaterhouse Coopers) in Washington DC in the late 1980s. They relocated to Price Waterhouse’s Chicago office in the mid-1990s, writing and implementing international tax software for multinational companies. They later migrated to Ernst & Young's Chicago office doing similar work, but were drawn to the beauty of the Canadian Rockies, and relocated there in the early 2000s.
Bob and Teresa are both Ph.D. economists by training, and never expected to be building and supporting business accounting software for forestry and oilfield service contractors. Yet they have found it to be easily the most gratifying years of their work lives. They love working with small, private (often family-run) companies, and never cease to be amazed at the variety of business challenges that their users follow. Bob & Teresa are grateful to live in the Canadian Rockies, and to help such a wonderful group of users overcome their business challenges and help them do their business better.
