About

Computer Bookkeeping Solutions had its beginning as a division of Gehman Accounting in 1999. From the start, we have provided QuickBooks® setup and support throughout Lancaster and surrounding counties. On July 1, 2002, Mahlon Fisher acquired ownership of Computer Bookkeeping Solutions, continuing the application of accounting and business technology to improve workflow and strengthen business processes. In Nov 2006, CBS moved to the lower level of the Lehman Financial Center at the Sharp Plaza in Ephrata.

What began as a specialty in the setup and support of QuickBooks has greatly broadened. Our clientele has grown and our services have expanded to embrace the field of productivity consultation, a vital market sector. We analyze accounting and other business systems to identify time and cost inefficiencies, workflow weaknesses and hindrances to productivity. In relationship with our client, we then formulate plans and strategies to maximize efficiency. Employing a collection of proven programs enables us to design customized solutions for business dilemmas.

Our vision too has matured. We want to be an example of effectual project management, conducting Computer Bookkeeping Solutions’ schedule so that all clients receive proper and timely attention and our own workflow and productivity are maximized. Because most of our client business is conducted remotely, it seemed advantageous to shift our base of operations even closer to home and family. Over the 2013-14 winter, we built an office and moved to the new facility in February, located at 35 Mazzotta Road in Stevens.

Mahlon Fisher

Owner / Consultant
 

Mahlon is the owner and primary consultant and trainer for Computer Bookkeeping Solutions.  He believes God has prepared him for business consulting by uniquely weaving together his farm upbringing, hands-on work experience in previous business enterprises, and love of the Truth.  In July of 2002 Mahlon acquired ownership of Computer Bookkeeping Solutions, applying technology and best practices to accounting and business management.  He is a member of the National Advisor Network and has completed the course of study to be a Certified QuickBooks® ProAdvisor and Certified Method Solution Provider.

When he was younger, Mahlon worked in diesel mechanics and on small engines.   For several years he was an industrialist, designing and fabricating custom trailers. Finding inventive solutions requires creativity and perseverance, which he now applies to devising solutions to his clients’ business dilemmas. Mahlon’s personal business ventures equip him to understand the struggles of owning and maintaining a business.

His focus turned from engineering to bookkeeping when he joined Gehman Accounting in 1999 to assist clients with QuickBooks® setup and training. After directing CBS as a separate division within Gehman Accounting for several years, Mahlon acquired ownership in 2002. He continued its existing services and develops new services to enhance clients’ accounting and business processes.

He attended private school through his early education and then worked independently toward his diploma. The need for continued education has taken him to many seminars, conferences and webinars that advance his professional training. He enjoys teaching in his local church and time with his wife and eleven children. Mahlon appreciates outdoor pursuits like gardening, camping, and dutch oven cooking or grilling.
