For years business leaders have been asking Abacus Software about the best internet technology to start a business online. The response is always the same. A successful online business starts with a great idea, not technology. eBay was created to sell items that were worth something to someone. Amazon was created to sell books online, with the idea that it could eventually sell anything. Google was created to make search results more relevant. Facebook was created to keep college buddies in touch after they left school. All these great companies started with a great idea.
My first job after college, I worked from 9 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon, Monday thru Friday. Today Abacus Software operates 24/7. As of early 2011, Google is reporting that over 10% of all queries are from a mobile device.

As technology and the internet become ubiquitous, businesses must adapt. Many businesses who thrived in the folder and typewritter era of the 70's are severely crippled and slowly fading out of the landscape. The workforce trained to type and file is severely inefficient. Client’s expectations are not changing. They have changed. Abacus Software is here to help you transition to the new model and to take full advantage of technology and the internet.
The culture of the information company has changed. The skills of the information worker have changed. The mindset and expectation of the customer have changed. That means management has to change. That means that business tactics and operations have to change. Flexibility and resiliency are paramount. Innovative businesses that make a quick transition will thrive. Laggards that don't, unfortunaly will not make it. The average lifespan of an S&P 500 company is 15 years.
