Powerful solutions. Unbeatable support.
In 1993, a young married couple set forth to disrupt a fledgling technology sector known as Point of Sale. Hunkered down in a small office, located in Fair Oaks, CA, Mick & Sandy Malaney identified a severe need for specialized client services to independent retail stores. As technology advanced, the customer was left behind. Nearly 30-years later, Big Hairy Dog is an award-winning help desk providing concierge service to a worldwide retail community.
"We have received nothing but excellent service. We even receive monthly courtesy calls just to see how we're doing."
—Ron Robinson, Inc.

Late nights, long weekends and exhausted staff laboriously scanning each item for inventory reconciliation is over. RIOT utilizes RFID technology which allows an employee to scan inventory by the square foot, not by each item. Scanning inventory goes from days to minutes with immediate inventory updates. No more quarterly, bi-annual or annual inventories. RIOT’s simplicity and speed accelerates the frequency of taking physical inventories ensuring you more profit and less loss.
