Five Questions with Thomas Eynon of Eynon Software, LLC

Eynon Software offers tailored software engineering solutions to small businesses in Ohio. Founded in 2017 by Eynon, a former paratrooper and software architect with more than twenty years’ experience, the company helps customers simplify processes, lower costs and automate repetitive tasks. Eynon envisions their new product Daccta as the Shutterstock of data conversion; enabling simple, rapid and repeated data conversion for businesses and end-users.

What inspired you to create your business?

The idea came about because one of our customers was receiving large amounts of data every single morning and we needed to come up with a way to automate this. We then decided to build a data-templating system for automatically importing more than 2 million data points every single day.

I’ve been writing software for 20 years (since I was 9 years old) and I’ve noticed a trend of issues with data conversion. Every single company that deals with any kind of software has a data conversion problem and that was the basis for our software, so we built that on top of the needs of one of our clients and we use it every day now.

What is your biggest takeaway from the Stark County Impact Program?

The startup world can be a very long, foggy and hard road for a lot of people. It’s very new to me. I’ve been in business for two years, but doing something like this is a very different scale. And something the program helped me realize is that there is a big difference between a lifestyle business and a high-growth business, and the Impact Program helped us stay focused and be able to express our vision and present that to people who may be able to help us grow that vision.

What separates you from the competition?

Our competition is usually quite expensive or requires a lot of know-how. Our solution is a web-based tool that is simple to end-users and reusable, meaning it can apply to multiple companies simultaneously.

What’s the most important thing Canton has to offer entrepreneurs?

Canton has started drastically improving the infrastructure from what I can tell. And I think that’s probably the biggest benefit, is that this place will be growing as a result of those infrastructure changes. There’s a lot of networking opportunities in the area and that is continuing to grow. And I think the biggest thing is just knowing that Canton itself is entirely behind this type of growth and encouraging the growth of technology in the area.

What are your future plans for your business?

A year from now, I see myself doing a seed or Series A round for Daccta, as well as lightly managing my software development business, which will be run in parallel to also help the growth and development of Daccta.
