BARONS was founded in 2002 in Bentonville, Arkansas by Brandon Morris and Sharon McCauley. After being frustrated with public practice as a CPA, Sharon partnered with Brandon to launch a new firm specializing in training and consulting businesses on the QuickBooks platform. With Sharon’s background as a CPA and Brandon’s technical know-how, they quickly gained a following of local, small businesses.
Over the next couple of years, the business grew and Barons began adding consultants and training experts from the country to serve their growing client base.
In 2006, BARONS entered the resellers market, offering QuickBooks sales and support along with the training and consulting they were already providing. This new complete suite of services attracted both consultants and clients alike and Barons quickly grew their presence across the country.
In 2009, BARONS launched their franchise service initiative and began helping franchise owners deploy QuickBooks across hundreds of locations. Even going so far as to writing custom manuals for both basic and advanced operations in the QuickBooks system.
BARONS’ franchise business grew like wildfire and even Intuit began to take notice, reaching out to Brandon directly to learn how to replicate Barons’ success.
Over the next six years, BARONS continued to grow its business into a titan of the QuickBooks world and doing so only by word of mouth. Eventually landing Barons’ on the top 25% of QuickBooks resellers in the world.
As they grew, BARONS began adopting industry specialists, who were able to provide their clients deeper insights and industry-specific solutions.
In 2018 BARONS was accepted into the Goldman Sachs 10k Small businesses program and after completing the program, Barons saw exponential growth eventually landing them as the 11th largest provider of QuickBooks sales, service, and training in the world.
Never satisfied with good enough, BARONS has continued to grow their team and actively seek QuickBooks experts across every state in the nation so we can provide local hands-on support to our clients when it matters most.
In 2019, BARONS launched their MSP program in order to better assist managed service providers in delivering more complete service offerings to their clients.
Now, after nearly a decade of selling and consulting Intuit product and their integrated technologies. BARONS has begun developing proprietary applications and technologies that will help optimize their clients and even their competitor’s use of the best accounting platform in the world, Intuit QuickBooks.
