We began by working out of a 10' x 10' room in the founder's home. Our business consisted of equipment sales, primarily our own 'white box' computers, and network services. By the end of our inaugural year, we added accounting software solutions to our product and service offerings.
As we improved our product and service offerings, our client base increased, and we quickly outgrew our small surroundings. In April of 1996, we relocated to our initial commercial space, a three-room office. We were able to improve our internal operations with the addition of a server-based local area network, a multi-line phone system, and additional office furniture.
For a little over 3 years, TBP worked from the 600 square foot office and refined our product and service offerings. With the year 2000 looming, we decided to discontinue building our own systems, and selected Hewlett-Packard as our computer and server equipment vendor. We expanded our accounting software product listing to include Great Plains Accounting, Great Plains Dynamics, as well as State of the Art's (now Best Software) MAS 90 and BusinessWorks products. Support services for all products grew and our client base continued to increase.
