Black Mountain Software, Inc. is a Montana-based firm that continues to expand in order to meet the information management demands of local governments across the nation. Founded in 1988, BMS has cultivated a reputation for unrivaled software products and superior customer service and support. It should come as no surprise then that Black Mountain Software has outgrown its humble Montanan roots and been exported to the likes of Alabama, Alaska, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming as well.

Black Mountain Software began as the creation of Helena’s own Wayne Carriere, who developed technical software products for nearby cities and towns, much to their benefit. In 1991, he began collaborating with another software company based in Polson. This company was co-founded by Jack Liebschutz, who developed a municipal fund accounting system. In 1993, the two ventures combined and incorporated as Black Mountain Software, Inc. After Wayne’s retirement in 2022, our future growth is overseen by co-CEOs Nate Quinn and Mike Fabrizio.

By 1995, Black Mountain Software had become Montana’s vendor of choice for the majority of cities and towns that wished to embrace the impending digital revolution. Vastly superior products, dedication to high quality service, and rapid expansion into local government made for tremendous value and became the basis of our success. Currently, we serve approximately 92 percent of Montana cities and towns with populations between 500 to 10,000.

Operating with around 50 employees, we have over 600 local government clients and uphold a reputation for exceptional products and services. We have developed and support more than 30 software products that feature reliable and complete integration, which has set a new standard for seamless automation.

We are proud of our strong track record and continued ability to simultaneously enhance our software products and meet expanding client needs.

We work extremely hard to ensure that each of our clients is fully satisfied with our software, service, and support. In assessing our suitability to provide your organization with software, we encourage you to contact any or all of our references. We stand by their opinions of us.
