About OpenBox Technologies Software

OpenBOX Technologies, a customer-driven company, was founded on a single principle: that mid-market companies will thrive if empowered with the right database tools and training. President and CEO, David Baeder has over 15 years of experience in the design and development of software and databases.

In December of 1989, he founded Business Link International (BLI) in an effort to leverage technologies that provide e-messaging services to organizations. The core nature of BLI required extensive use of databases and web services. BLI leveraged technology to allow customers extensive access and controls to back office systems. These same tools would provide the catalyst for Open Business Object Exchange, or what is known today as OpenBOX.

OpenBOX Technologies specifically addresses enterprise solutions including CRM. OpenBOX Technologies customers consist of SMB as well as large enterprises in various industries.

The OpenBOX “departmental solution” approach enables large corporations to function as efficiently as smaller mid-market companies.
