Our Story

Fuhr Software, Inc. began in 1995 when the founder, Jaime Fuhr, worked for a credit union and saw the need for a more secure and organized way for members to check in and wait for service.

 

At the time, the credit union was using a paper sign-in sheet. Potentially sensitive information was available for anyone to view, and employees didn’t always know when members had already been helped, or when they left due to long waits. That’s when Jaime created the first iteration of what is now LobbyCentral.

 

LobbyCentral was founded in 2005 and is based in Columbus, Ohio. We have customers all over the country in many different industries. Our core customers are in Education, Healthcare, Government, Retail, and finance.
