Who we are
In 1984, Leif Petterson founded Norse Systems and introduced the first computer system based on a commercial database that was designed for bus and motorcoach companies. Today Norse is still leading the way with important innovations in technology, marketing and applications with leading edge designs to improve profitability and performance for all of our clients.
The focus at Norse has been on creating new ways to improve profitability. The drive to improve client profitability is the motivator behind Norse technical innovations. Working closely with our clients helps us focus and sort out what really works. That's why we've been here so long nearly 35 years a rarity in the ever changing computer system and application marketplace.

Mr. Hopper also brings extraordinary depth and breadth of experience to bear on the issues facing our clients as well as a nationally known set of technical skills.
