Our Story

Business Automation Specialists of MN, Inc. (BASM) began in 1985. Our goal has always been to help businesses improve profitability and efficiency through software and technology.

The Beginning

Easy Bound Book® began in 2008 when Magnum Research came to us with the problems of their existing electronic Bound Book. After much collaboration with expert ATF legal counsel Mark Barnes & Associates and the ATF, the first version of Easy Bound Book was born.

Development / Enhancements

There have been many enhancements since 2008. To ensure Easy Bound Book remains the best ATF record keeping software, we continually talk to the ATF and our customers and incorporate their suggestions into Easy Bound Book. Most Easy Bound Book enhancements, such as inventory reconciliation, are not driven by ATF requirements, but by our goal to help our FFL customers improve profitability and efficiency.


While you can “figure software out on your own”, we believe you achieve the best solution when you have experts to guide you. That is why we provide live, individualized training; real people to answer the phone and provide support and access to the experts for the “tough” questions. The result elevates Easy Bound Book from an excellent piece of software to a superior business solution.
