Abacus was founded in July of 2000 as a global IBM AS/400 and RS/6000 brokerage house with the goal of providing hardware solutions from an ethical company that truly represented their customers’ best interest. We quickly expanded our inventoried product lines encompassing Cisco, IBM Storage, IBM xSeries, HP-9000, HP-Proliant, and Sun. This allowed us to provide server, storage, and networking solutions to a variety of customers including: leasing companies, business partners, consultants, end-users, and other wholesalers.
As the IT industry increasingly became 24/7/365 oriented, we adapted to our clients’ needs with more direct interaction, enhanced offerings, and custom services. In 2006, to facilitate this shift in business, we consolidated sales and technical operations into our current headquarters in Marietta, GA; a 35,000 sq. ft. space including sales, technical, support, lab, warehouse, 25,000 items of inventory, datacenter, and training center. In addition we developed committed partnerships with dozens of leading manufacturers to provide vendor-neutral and best of purpose IT solutions.
With these resources and partnerships, we established ourselves as one of the Southeast’s largest privately held IT solution providers, selling hardware, solutions, services, cloud, support, and more.
In November 2014 Abacus expanded our local solution and advisory business into a new company; we created the Cumberland Group to provide the advice and solutions necessary to align and link rapidly changing business and technology landscapes. The Cumberland offshoot allowed Abacus to continue to focus on our core - network, server, and storage hardware solutions as well as cloud and professional IT services.
Since our inception Abacus has grown year to year – success we attribute to the loyalty we show both our customers and our employees - and we look to further establish ourselves as a premier, white-glove IT solutions and technology provider. At Abacus We Get IT. We’ve got your back, your bottom line, and your best interest covered.
