Marjorie Adams founded Fourlane in 2009, after years working as a Controller in the manufacturing industry. Marjorie saw a growing need for QuickBooks Enterprise expertise. Although QuickBooks is by far the most widely used accounting software, few companies were using it to its full ability, and even fewer were able to perform technical file services like product conversions, file condenses, or repairs of data corruption. In just one year, Fourlane became the #1 reseller of Intuit products, with more QuickBooks Enterprise engagements than any other company worldwide. The team has now grown to more than 30, including a U.S. based services team that assists clients with high-level consulting and deep technical work inside the software. Fourlane also continues to be the highest volume seller of Intuit products. Fourlane branched out to the ERP space by representing Acumatica ERP software. QuickBooks users who need to expand their system's capabilities find that our expertise in both products smooths the transition. In addition to leading Fourlane to consistent growth and success, Marjorie is a member of the Forbes Finance Council, a six-time Intuit ProAdvisor of the Year, and an Austin Profiles in Power nominee. She loves soccer and sports and spending time with her young son in their Austin community.
