About Us

Building Cloud Software For 14 Years.


Our Story

Centerbase started with the same fundamental purpose that drives the company today: solving real problems. In fact, John Forbes, the CEO and Founder of Centerbase, started developing the software in 2003 as a solution for his own company. While managing Progression Technologies, a re-seller of engineer software, John recognized the need for a configurable management platform that could meet the specific needs of any company.

With this concept in mind, Centerbase was created as a highly configurable practice management solution. Although Progression Technologies was successfully sold in 2014, Centerbase’s unique adaptive capabilities made the software an ideal solution for several firm's practice management needs. After years of development and refinement, Centerbase began catering to the legal sector, providing a cloud-based system for any type of practice area. 

Today, Centerbase is the most customizable, cloud-based legal practice management, accounting and billing solution that gives mid-sized firms the power to streamline their daily tasks with ease and efficiency. Centerbase delivers the power of legacy systems with the flexibility of the cloud to modernize firms without sacrificing functionality.


“You can’t fit every law firm into the same box. That's why we offer a configurable program that adapts to your best practices. Our application adapts to you — instead of your firm having to adapt to a program.”

-Rob Joyner, Sales Manager
