Better Systems began in 1987 with the collaboration of Dr. James Aldridge, D.C., and his staff.

In June of 1991, a group of Chiropractors reviewed the major software programs available, in a side by side comparison, and chose The Better System as "The Best Overall Package".

Since then we have continued to develop The Better System by including feedback from a large number of clients. The current software is based on thirty-five years of development, and is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10 and 11 (64 bit included).

Written using Rapid Application Development tools, it has continually evolved from the same code used in clinics through all those years, resulting in a program that is full featured, fast, compact and stable.

Our People:

Tom Harvey

Tom studied in the renowned Computer Science program at the University of Waterloo, ultimately graduating in Honours History with a Computer Science minor. Tom achieved considerable real-world experience both in the University's co-op program and in the years after his graduation, and has worked at a number of technology-oriented companies in areas including software development, systems design and technical support. Tom has since brought his skills and experience to bear, driving the next phase of growth at Better Systems.

Jon Fuller

Jon began programming in 1972 at The University of Western Ontario, where he graduated in Honours Economics with several computer science courses. While there Jon displayed great aptitude as a programmer for a research project designing General Equilibrium computer models of the Canadian and World Economies. As a result, he was invited to continue developing these models at The Australian National University, at The University of Sydney, and at The University of New South Wales, Australia. Jon then founded Better Systems, creating the much-loved software used by hundreds of clinics across North America and beyond. Unfortunately, a decade after passing the torch to Tom, Jon passed away in November of 2020.
