Sausage Software was an Australian software company, founded by entrepreneur Steve Outtrim, which produced one of the world's most successful web editors: the HotDog web authoring tool. The product and company name have since been purchased by an Australian consulting firm, called SMS Management & Technology.
HotDog and the company became the 'dotcom darling' of the Australian media receiving a large amount of media exposure due to the young age of the company's founder and staff featuring pinball machines and a pool table in the company's reception area.
Sausage Software also invested in various other pioneering software strategies and products:
Their website was one of the most popular at the time, receiving 250,000 hits per day in 1996.
