- Since its first year of operation in 1991, when it invoiced $30,000 on a good month, Center Drill, Inc. has grown to generate thousands in monthly revenue.
- Two people handle all operations using QuickBooks Enterprise and Quick Base. They take care of the five business entities within Center Drill, Inc.
- Before switching to QuickBooks in 2008, the company recorded all their finances by hand, meaning bank statements took days to reconcile. Now it takes them five minutes.
At the dusk of the 1980s oil glut, Tommy Moses first set out to buy oil equipment in 1989 for pennies on the dollar. Despite his keen sense of timing, even he would not have predicted his new company would become a family business spanning three generations, eventually pulling six figures a month in revenue.
Tommy officially founded his company, Center Drill, Inc., in 1991 and has been in the downhole drilling and oil field tool market for nearly three decades. Until 2007, it was a one-man operation, with Tommy recording every business transaction by hand, pen on paper or in Excel.
Today, although Tommy’s son and grandsons have joined the business, operations have remained lean despite the business growth. All operations are handled by two women, Francie Vance and Star Moses, Tommy’s daughter-in-law, using QuickBooks Enterprise.
