Ideal Software Systems, Inc. was founded in 1983 as an extension of family involvement in the Family Entertainment Center industry that started in 1976. The President and CEO, David Goldman, grew up in the FEC world as part of the family.
David saw the need for software systems that would enable any business, but especially FEC’s, to operate more efficiently. After graduating from the University of Texas, David returned to his hometown of Meridian, MS and Ideal Software Systems, Inc. was born.
