"I turned a $20 investment into over $10 million dollars in revenue. I am offering you a platform to do the same. "
- Joseph Anderson, CEO & Founder
In 2009, I was down and out. I worked at a software company in technical support and I was laid off in September. I thought I was on the fast track to management and a six figure salary. I wanted to develop software, but my former employer had no opportunities because all development was overseas.
All I had was $20, a laptop, and a blog.
A company in Texas located my website and asked if I wanted to help build their website. Encouraged, I contacted other website development companies that I knew from technical support and I created my own full time job.
I originally founded Connex to help implement e-commerce websites.
For the first few years, I was the only employee and I worked as a contractor on various projects. I called the company JMA Web Technologies. I had no business partners, investors, or venture capital. I believe a company should get by on its own steam.
I always knew that data entry was a problem. My mother had carpel tunnel in her late 20s, had surgery, and later left her job after 16 years of employment. She still works in data entry having back and neck pains.
The type of data she enters requires a different automation solution than the one I built in 2013. Back in 2008, my former employer hired an intern to hand enter 100 sales per day into QuickBooks Desktop. I sat across from her and she was miserable. She left her position a short time later. Data entry positions have high turn over and usually require extensive training.
I met a programmer online who showed me how to sync sales to QuickBooks. About a month later, I built my first version of Connex.
About a month later, I built my first version of Connex.
I primarily performed custom integrations for small businesses, but I wanted my product to work with popular e-commerce solutions out of box with no code.
From a former employer, I learned about the Intuit App Center and the emergence of QuickBooks Online. In May of 2013, I launched the web based version of Connex called the Cloud Cart Connector for QuickBooks Online.
In February of 2014, I launched the Connex for QuickBooks Desktop that was web based.
In 2018, I renamed the company Sync with Connex and launched our two products Connex for QuickBooks Desktop and Connex for QuickBooks Online.
My staff and I have gone through many iterations over the years, and these are our core values:
I would rather send you to another QuickBooks integrator than ask you to sign up, then fail to meet your expectations.
Connex is a pioneer in QuickBooks and was one of the first apps listed on the Intuit App Center for QuickBooks Online, one of the first apps to support QuickBooks outside the U.S. At Connex, we believe in building cutting-edge technology. We embrace and welcome change.
We have pride in our product and pride in our workmanship.
Connex has been in business since 2010 and we have been developing with QuickBooks for over a decade. QuickBooks development is our primary focus.
Our staff is U.S. based and trained by me directly.
We believe that less is more. We support and maintain the most popular integrations, prioritize product performance and reliability, and have a simple user interface.
Our company is always trying to get to the next level offering a better user experience.
I know that other companies can sync your sales to QuickBooks, but that’s not all we do. Connex performs a two-way sync of orders, automatically matches payouts with your sales, syncs inventory from QuickBooks, offers U.S. based support, and a rules engine to customize the software. All without code. Connex is a complete solution that will save time, so you can focus on your business instead of working inside of it.
I turned a $20 investment into over $10 million dollars in revenue. I am offering you a platform to do the same.
Are you ready to get to the next level?
