About Us

intheBlk (pronounced “in the black”) consulting was founded by Paul Giese when he realized companies needed additional assistance implementing accounting software.

Passionate about technology and its ability to enhance productivity, Paul built two prototype tools (long-range planning and ASC 606 revenue recognition tool) based on his experience working at Surface Oncology. Paul left Surface Oncology in the Spring of 2019 to start intheBlk.

Upon starting intheBlk, Paul quickly realized a demand for consulting services around NetSuite implementations. Additionally, Paul was able to leverage his coding skills to ease the pain of migrating financial data from legacy systems to NetSuite.

Paul has successfully led or been a part of implementing:

  • NetSuite (ERP)
  • Sage Intacct (ERP)
  • Oracle PBCS (financial planning)
  • Jaggaer (purchasing)
  • Coupa (purchasing)
  • ExpenseWatch (purchasing)

Paul has used QuickBooks Online, QuickBooks Desktop, Great Plains, Sage Intacct, and NetSuite for accounting software.

Paul now lives with his family in the Austin, TX area.
