The ABIS culture deck contains everything you need to know about working, and more importantly, living at ABIS. From our Monday morning meetings to our First Friday Familia gatherings, we try to make working as fun as possible.
Founded in 1983 by Russell Schulte, ABIS is a group of professionals with a goal of transforming and
revolutionizing the way companies work through the use of software solutions with business efficiency in
mind. With the help of our client-partners and our growing community, ABIS continues to grow and
become more impactful, as does our Adjutant and MetalEZ software.
Who are we?
What does the word company mean?
The word company has friendly
beginnings: Com (together) and panis
which is Latin for bread. It literally
translates as someone you break bread
Who could be against having fun and
breaking bread? We are not! At ABIS,
every first Friday of the month we
celebrate one another, our good deeds
and company accomplishments.
We call it our First Friday Familiarity
Imagine the love.
The love of our city, experiences, helping one
another; The love of what we do.
Imagine the best of all at work.
The best desks, chairs, co-workers, the best office.
Imagine sitting next to the right person on the bus.
Imagine the freedom to be yourself.
You don’t have to imagine, all this exists at ABIS!
Russell Schulte, CEO
