Our Beginning and Our Mission

Wayne Barnett Software started in 2000. Wayne’s mission is to create software that is easy to use and affordable. After 23 successful years, the mission continues.
Since the beginning, we’ve done things in a different way. Specifically:
  • Our contracts are annual agreements with no auto-renewal.
  • We offer a 30-day free trial.
  • There’s no charge for initial training or installation.
  • There’s no termination fee.
We’ve been profitable year after year and our reputation is rock solid–so we plan to keep doing things the same way. And that’s not all:
  • For 22+ years we’ve published the BSA Examiner, a free industry newsletter with great stories and advice.
  • After over two decades of refining our tools based on customer feedback, we have a great portfolio of systems.  We’re proud to share customer references.
  • Any time you call or email us, you’ll be speaking with someone who can help you.

Mark Schwarz – CEO

Mark began working in software in 1996.  He’s been a founder or early employee at four data-centric software startups, primarily in the Austin area.  Each of those startups depended on a healthy, safe banking and lending environment to grow. He’s seen that getting the fundamentals right, day after day, creates the best experience for customers.  

Mark has a degree in computer science from Texas A&M.
