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?
  3. 3. 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 with. 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 meeting. #CultureCode Company
