AbacusNext® helps businesses with stringent security and compliance needs grow by providing Compliance-Ready turnkey technology solutions, allowing our clients to leverage the power of cloud computing without the added challenges and expenses of managing complex IT infrastructures on their own.

Since 1983, we have delivered on-demand services to over 1.5 million users worldwide, and are recognized by Forbes as one of America’s fastest growing companies. 

We were founded on one simple concept: improving the lives of professionals through the use of technology. Our core competencies serve to simplify the adoption, implementation, and management of technology to quickly increase revenues, reduce costs, and maximize efficiencies, while keeping security and compliance at the forefront. 

What We Do

For every engagement, we propose a solution tailored to meet their unique business needs and provide the utmost care in the implementation process.
