DVO Enterprises is a family software company located in Alpine, UT. DVO's products are distributed through traditional retail channels and over the Internet.
Oaks FamilyDVO Enterprises was founded in a spare bedroom by software developer Daniel V. Oaks Jr. in March of 1992. As a student at Brigham Young University with one computer, little capital, and no connections, Dan set out with the goal of creating quality software products to strengthen families.
Considering that 9 out of 10 new business startups fail, Dan admits that it's a miracle his succeeded. But, succeed it did! The HomeCook'n Newsletter has over 300,000 subscribers, DVO.com receives 10,000 unique visitors each day, and Cook'n has become the #1 best-selling recipe organizer with over 3 million copies sold!
Dan says this is a good but not good enough! That's why he went back to the drawing board and created Cook'n Version 11. Dan filed 8 patents for new features that he and his team invented in Cook'n Version 11. With it's new Scan-It, Snip-It, Snag-It, embedded web browser, and the amazing, mind-boggling, new Search & Capture feature, Cook'n Version 11 is revolutionizing the recipe industry replacing Google as the search engine of choice when it comes to recipes and becoming the portal through which all recipe websites are accessed.
And, with the release of the new Cook'n Mobile Apps for Android, iPhone, and iPad, Cook'n makes it even easier to make mealtime memorable and simplify meal preparation bringing families together and getting even closer to Dan's goal of creating quality software products to strengthen families.

Most major software companies today name shareholder value or profitability as their top priority. At DVO, our priorities are: people first, products second, and profits third. Profiting is like breathing. As humans, we must breathe to live, but we do not live to breathe. As a company, DVO must profit to exist, but we will not exist merely to profit. Achieving our goal of building a top four family software brand takes a tremendous amount of capital, but we will never sacrifice the needs of families or our employees simply to increase our wealth.
The world is full of software companies that are out to make a buck. The world desperately needs a software company that is out to make a difference.
