Who’s Who at Out Of The Box Technology
Out Of The Box Technology, founded by Lisa McCarthy and Andrew Abrams, is the result of more than 40 years combined experience consulting with business owners on their accounting and technology needs.
After years in corporate accounting and finance, working for EDS and Pepsi-Cola, Lisa started a QuickBooks consulting firm in Michigan called Accounting Resource. For 13 years she worked with small business owners, and then a very lucky turn of events happened. Lisa met Andrew Abrams at a professional training event in Chicago. Andrew was then president of ABA Consulting, a Milwaukee based IT company.
"Within 30 minutes of talking with Andrew, I knew I wanted him as a partner. We each had unique strengths, which combined, allowed us to provide end-to-end services to our clients," said Lisa.
"Our focus was similar at the time – franchises and end-to-end ‘boxed’ solutions," said Andrew. “Lisa and I have been on the same wave length regarding our business plan and how we want to grow ten years from now.”
And the way technology changes so quickly, Lisa and Andrew know they need to stay on top of small business trends. With the onset of cloud computing, hosted applications, and a multitude of web-based business solutions, Lisa and Andrew work every day to maintain a flexible company environment that can swiftly adapt to changing technology and customer needs. Out Of The Box Technology is just what the names says. It is a team of consultants dedicated to providing cutting edge technology, consulting, and support services to small and mid-market companies. Lisa and Andrew partner their expertise, and the expertise of their consultants, with leading software companies to deliver robust, technology-based accounting and information management solutions.
Andrew and Lisa have combed the country looked for top-notch consultants who have specialized knowledge in inventory, point of sale, reporting, QuickBooks Online, and a whole slew of credentials. With remote consulting opportunities, small to medium sized business owners can work with some of the most experienced consultants in the QuickBooks and IT worlds.
