Business Intelligence—It's What We Do

You get plenty of "reports"—from P&L statements to aging of receivables to sales reports. But are you really getting the information you need to run your business?

Most people we talk to answer this question with a very weak "yes." They're running their businesses and getting at least basic information. But more often than not, it's pieced together from multiple sources, often using a hodgepodge of spreadsheets and back-of-an-envelope "procedures."

Often, the biggest problem is data integration: pulling data from disparate sources together into a single, easy-to-use analytical tool.

At ABS, we have over 20 years of experience in data integration and business intelligence. We can create a system for you that will pull all your data together, clean it up, and present it in a fashion that means something to you. And we'll get rid of all those confusing spreadsheets (while keeping the ones that are genuinely useful).

Getting Social Media Right

Unless you've been living in a cave, you've heard lots of talk about "social media" and what they can do to spread any message, be it commercial, charitable, or political.

It's true that you can reach astonishing numbers of people very quickly by using Twitter, Facebook,, and other social networking platforms. But social media campaigns can backfire if they're done wrong. Nothing arouses the ire of social media fans more quickly than anything they perceive as "spam," or even worse, phony grassroots activism.
