Media Profile
Mara Matson

VP Finance, Media Profile, Canada

Using Abak Software Since 2002

"I am very happy with my Abak time and billing solution."

The Challenge

The billing cycle took 2 weeks (10 business days) to complete my billing cycle.

The Solution

Abak’s invoice formats and link to Sage Accpac ERP

The Result

66% reduction in billing cycle. My invoices look far more professional and the link with ACCPAC is working great.

The Contribution of Abak Software

Our automated billing features and off-the-shelf reports increased Mara’s productivity 3-fold. Since I also have more reports directly from Abak, I don't have to do anymore excel reports for clients or internal purposes at month end. I found Abak intuitive to learn.


Educational & Institutional Cooperative Service
Jim Kowalski

Director, IT, Educational & Institutional Cooperative Service, Inc., USA

Using Abak 360 Software Since 2011

"A collaborative platform that supports the full lifecycle of servicing, billing, and identifying opportunities"

The Challenge

In June of 2011, E&I leadership team felt it was time to expand its core focus to its membership from best in class procurement contracts to several other value-added services, specifically procurement consulting services directly to the membership. While E&I's technology infrastructure could support the electronic gathering and reporting of ROI metrics, it felt a dedicated software solution focused on the operational and strategic management of the new business pipeline was the most advantageous decision.

The Solution

To support this decision, the solution also needed to be easy to use, from both a timesheet entry and administration perspective, but also needed to support corporate and field-based consumers transparently. Many solutions were evaluated, with a focus on SaaS and SMB expertise.

The Result

Abak 360, above its other competitors in this space, was able to execute on those requirements, with an attentive and qualified team, at an extremely cost effective model.

The Contribution of Abak Software

Due to Abak's effective use of fast / detailed time and billing components, combined with a unique and flexible invoicing / reporting solution set, corporate and field-based units can maximize on a collaborative platform that supports the full lifecycle of servicing, billing, and identifying opportunities in this growing area for E&I.
