About Paragon Software Solutions, Inc.

Mark and Jane Forbush have been implementing software systems for more than 25 years.

Both earned their Bachelor’s Degree from Bentley College (now Bentley University). 

Prior to receiving his education from Bentley, Mark served in the US Air Force in Computer Operations. Mark was immediately hired into a “Big 8” accounting firm and passed the CPA exam on his first sitting – something very few do. His resume also includes a master’s degree and six years’ experience with BBN (Bolt, Beranek, & Newman) – the real inventor of the Internet.

Mark and Jane were on the cutting edge of using accounting software to produce invoices, automate payroll, and financial statements.
Their first accounting software implementation was Peachtree Software in 1983. Since then they have implemented MCBA on a Wang VS minicomputer, McCormick & Dodge on an IBM mainframe, Macola, Real World, and Great Plains (now Microsoft Dynamics GP).

This combination of advanced education in accounting and extensive technology experience, along with the passion they both have for their work and the quality of the personal relationships with their clients have made Mark and Jane trusted advisors to hundreds of companies large and small.

Mark and Jane reside in Burlington, Massachusetts with their six children. Mark explains, “There are only two things I do– computers and family.”
