Our Team

Abel’s close knit team of software engineers and “ERP” implementation consultants share the vision of our Founder and Managing Director Allan Baird, to deliver affordable, serious ERP functionality designed for all businesses.

Our team draws on all their experience: with ERP systems, financial systems, and with earlier careers providing successful business solutions for industrial, manufacturing and mining companies. We understand the real business problems our customers face, and we have created software that is relevant, powerful and competitive.
