About the Company:
The company’s roots have always been in small business software, having first developed QXpress, a field service scheduling software for QuickBooks.
After the team had grown to 20+, QXpress was sold to a competitor – giving us the time necessary to launch our new venture: Method! You see, somewhere along the way, we had this massive idea, and had already started tinkering with it…….
The massive idea
Wouldn’t it be a game-changer if small businesses could truly afford a custom business application? Let’s take away the advantage large enterprises have with their multi-million dollar SAP and Oracle customized solutions! Being cost prohibitive, custom solutions are for the big guys, while the small guys settle for rigid out-of-the-box software. In our QXpress days, we learned that small business users had a great desire for customization. They demonstrated this with their passion for designing and customizing their own reports using a drag & drop, wizard-based report designer.
This spawned the thought…..why limit that to just reports? What if an entire app was built that way?
What if we created a do-it-yourself platform, and used it to create an awesome CRM app that can be used out-of-the-box, but is also fully customizable – since every screen, every button, everything, was made using the same drag & drop tools that users had access to? How novel. And what if we built in automatic real-time syncing with QuickBooks? With this thought…..the concept behind Method was born!
Thousands of QuickBooks users around the world now run their companies on Method, and hundreds of QuickBooks advisors and consultants recommend Method to their clients.
We believe in your innovation. This is why we created Method. We believe in the small guy taking on the Goliath.
