Addico Solutions is a family-owned company and the name behind Basil Bookseller Software. Launched in 2003 by brothers Eric and Mike McKnight, Basil was created to address all of the needs of new, used, and online booksellers with just one product.
We have 180 bookstores across the U.S. ranging in size from less than 1,000 sq ft to 50,000 sq ft. Some exclusively sell new books and others sell a mix of new and used.
We continue to enhance Basil Bookseller Software as our customers’ needs and technology changes, and we strive to provide our customers with unparalleled access to their inventory and peace of mind.
Eric founded Addico Solutions in 2002 and he continues to help run the company on a daily basis as well as lead the software’s development. Eric enjoys creating software solutions that are friendly and solve customer problems.
Outside of books, Eric spends time being involved in his local church and enjoying his family. He lives in Loganville, GA, with his wife Mandy, five children and his dog Blue.
Michael McKnight, Jr.
Mike Jr. has been with Addico Solutions since his brother Eric founded the company in 2002. As Vice President of Operations, Mike's day-to-day includes keeping the servers up to speed, running product demos, training, and managing customers' software migration. Beyond the nitty-gritty, Mike takes a vested interest in the need for bookstores to adapt and change their business model based upon the increasingly competitive bookseller market. From learning to sell non-book items and running book fairs at the local school to becoming social media experts and running an ecommerce site, booksellers' needs are diverse. Thankfully for Mike, he enjoys solving customers' problems.
When he's not solving problems, Mike enjoys spending time traveling with his wife, or kicking back at their home in Suwanee with their three kids and four dogs.
Michael McKnight, Sr.
Mike Sr. loves to help bookseller customers embrace technology, and as the voice behind Basil’s Tech on CallSM support, he gets that chance every day. And as the father of Basil owners Eric and Mike Jr., he is also the ever-present voice of reason and business guidance. Mike Sr. works hard to ensure that Basil customers are provided with first rate service within the guaranteed 24-hour time frame. He also coordinates billing, marketing, trade shows, new customer equipment set up and training, and when needed, janitorial duties. His kids are grown and he’s still cleaning their room!
Mike Sr. lives in Dacula, GA, with his wife Brenda, and two dogs, Sadie and Dasher. When he’s not working for the love of books, he likes to fish, hunt, or spend time with family and grandkids just hangin’ out.
