IQ: Technology in A Box LLC

Technology In A Box LLC has grown dramatically in its first two years of operation. The company, run by Andrew Abrams, executive director and one of the founders, has added offices in Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Minneapolis and Chicago, with a staff of 20 employees and partners.

“As a First Solution Provider for Intuit in the QuickBooks Enterprise accounting software area, we were one of the first companies nationwide to see this business line as an opportunity,” says Ellen Schroeter, an executive in the Michigan location. “We saw it as a niche to specialize in with a new product line. Andrew, who also holds the title of chief visionary officer, had the foresight to create a company that would soon become one of elite consulting companies in its field. We consult on sales, implementation, installation, customization, integration, training and support of accounting technology solutions.”

Abrams formed the company by joining five of the top QuickBooks Technology consultants in the country. The focus was to provide end-to-end solutions to the SMB (small-medium business) marketplace.

“We are innovative in how we deliver products and services to clients locally and nationally. Nearly 95 percent of our consulting and installation services are performed remotely over the Internet. Our sales and delivery methods are unique because we can service any company anywhere,” Abrams says.

The remote capabilities that the company offers their clients constitute a savings. Clients pay less in travel costs – and so does the company.

“Our products and services delivery method has allowed us to grow in a down economy,” Abrams says. “We’ve had a 40 percent increase in business over the previous year. We’ve hired talented employees and allow them to live and work from anywhere. This is flex-time to the max.  The savings we realize is through consolidating employees and resources across multiple offices. Decreased travel costs and travel times has allowed us to maximize the use of our time and minimize our expenses.”
