As members of the International Franchise Association, when working with franchises, we have two goals –
- Provide infrastructure and efficiencies in the franchise environment
- Streamline bookkeeping processes
What we do:
QuickBooks Template Development
Out Of The Box Technology develops custom QuickBooks templates for implementing new franchisees to minimize setup and training efforts. The goal being to streamline and simplify franchisee bookkeeping processes and maximize the availability of Business Intelligence data that can be pulled directly from QuickBooks. It’s more than just a chart of accounts…that's only the beginning!
QuickBooks Training and Support
We provide your franchisees with training tailored specifically to your franchise processes. Once Out Of The Box Technology completes a beta test of the QuickBooks training, we will provide the recommended minimum amount of training and the cost per franchisee.
Individualized QuickBooks Cleanup services are available as needed. With a staff of CPAs and Accounting professionals who specialize in QuickBooks, Out Of The Box Technology can clean up any mess and turn it into meaningful reporting that is consistent with your desired "template" solution and Chart of Accounts.
Your franchisees can purchase QuickBooks software from us at low, low pricing.

Some thoughts about our work in the franchise space:
“I want to send a big shout out to you and your team for the fantastic work they've done with my teams on the two apps you have done. Nick has done a great job and consistently over-delivers and helps my guys deliver. My guys say glowing things about Nick and your team. We are very excited about our conference app which was released today. Cool stuff. Thank you.”
Dan Steward, Pillar to Post
“I was told Out Of The Box Technology was a resource I could use to help me get on track with QuickBooks. Out Of The Box Technology urged me to put items into the proper accounts where they should be. I’m still a work in progress but when I’m done training with Out Of The Box Technology I can see what I’ll be able to do! I’ll be able to realize where most of my expenditures are and where we need to trim if necessary. Our P&L statement will be more useful because it’ll be more accurate by having everything where it’s supposed to be. Mary Hunter has been very congenial. She’s very uplifting. Mary is very knowledgeable. When I feel stupid, Mary says, ‘Oh no! Not everyone is supposed to know everything about QuickBooks!’ She’s very encouraging! I do feel much better knowing that it’s okay not to know everything about QuickBooks. The mountain is not as hard to climb when you have someone helping you along the way.”
