Fourasoft, LLC was born from a dream that had been brewing for years in the minds of three long-time friends and business colleagues – Albert Boettger (a computer nerd), Brian Rawlings (a sales operations guy), and Brian Peterson (a bean counter).
The three guys worked together for several years at a previous company, a high-profile world-leader in the identification and security industry that experienced significant growth, both from organic means as well as through mergers and acquisitions. During their years there, they experienced first-hand that the various ERP software packages the business had paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for just could not meet its diverse needs. They were just too cumbersome, required too much support, and created too many inefficiencies. Add on to that trying to glue different ERP systems of acquired companies together just made for bigger headaches.
Management needed business management software that was fully integrated, flexible, user-friendly, secure, intuitive, cost effective, scalable and powerful. Long story short, these three guys, along with a few others, were called upon to design and develop a highly customized, user friendly, in-house business management system. They were intimately involved in building a system over several years that created efficiencies throughout the organization, enabling it to run lean and mean, providing great value to its shareholders.
Both before and after leaving that company, through various relationships and circumstances, they observed the need in growing small businesses for the same type of powerful, yet affordable, unified business management software – something that would help businesses get away from running on glued together apps and spreadsheets. Something that would allow owners to graduate from the chaos of running their businesses on low-end, unsecure, unauditable “accounting” software or unstable ERP systems spawned by too many mergers and acquisitions.
So they set out on the journey to take all of their combined knowledge, previous experience and expertise, and design and develop their FOURA product from the ground up, to meet the needs of growing businesses. Your business!
