About Woodard Consulting Group

Woodard Consulting Group provides technology consulting services to businesses with complex operational and/or reporting requirements and are ready to invest in ERP solutions and highly customized CRM applications.

Joe Woodard, founder and CEO founded Woodard Consulting Group in 2001 initially to support larger clients using QuickBooks - including the support of the then newly released QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions. Currently, Woodard Consulting Group offers services to clients who have outgrown QuickBooks and need to 1) integrate QuickBooks with a robust, industry-specific solution (e.g. Fishbowl or LOCATE Inventory) or 2) migrate to a mid-market ERP solution (e.g. Microsoft Business Central, Gravity Software or Sage 300).

Joe Woodard has 20+ years of experience working with small to medium-sized businesses on QuickBooks, Fishbowl Inventory and MethodCRM.

He founded Woodard Consulting Group in 2001 to service the needs of businesses who were stretching their use of QuickBooks, which led him to support various add-on solutions like Fishbowl and Method and then, ultimately, to recruit experts on QuickBooks replacement systems like Gravity Software and Sage 300.

Joe is passionate about the transformation of small businesses, and extends this transformation to include a wide range of resources for fellow business advisors, including hosting one of the largest conferences for small business advisors in the world called Scaling New Heights.
