About Us

History

TOPQuote grew out of the software consulting industry where its predecessor, Austerity Business Solutions, quickly became one of Richmond, Virginia's premier software development firms following its founding in 2002.

With a focus on custom software development, TOPQuote’s leadership helped design and develop software solutions for many companies across many different industries. Experience ranging from image analysis for the Department of the Navy, medical billing, and credit card processing led to the awarding of a contract to design and build a custom estimating, sales tracking, and reporting system for Convergint Technologies. With collaborative design, robust training, and highly evolved support plans, Convergint was able to successfully perform a national rollout of its new quoting system in 2015, less than six months from project start.

In early 2020, TOPQuote partnered with Summit Companies on a 2021 rollout of the first iteration of our flagship product, TOPQuote BluePrint.

BluePrint is a branded version of the TOPQuote platform that can be customized to your company’s specific needs. In Summit’s case, we leveraged our experience in fire alarm, security, sprinkler, clean agent, and audio/video to provide a full suite of quoting, sales tracking, and analytics tools that have helped Summit standardize and manage its processes through over 60 recent acquisitions.
