Abel Solutions to Continue Supporting Existing SharePoint Clients Under Agreement

Abel Solutions, Atlanta’s only consulting firm focusing on the delivery of real business solutions on the SharePoint platform, today announced it has been acquired by Applied Technical Services, Inc. (ATS) as a wholly owned subsidiary. The transition is effective immediately, with Abel Solutions continuing to operate as an autonomous unit under the ownership of ATS.

“Abel Solutions has a terrific reputation for excellence with SharePoint technology, and their expertise was instrumental in helping ATS launch its comprehensive vision for document and workflow management using SharePoint,” said ATS IT Director Mike Murray. “ATS will leverage this new partnership to continue its SharePoint rollout across the organization while expanding its IT services for the benefit of customers, employees and shareholders.”

Under the new arrangement, Abel Solutions will continue to operate out of its offices in Alpharetta, GA, supporting its existing customers as it has done in the past. The arrangement with ATS will afford Abel Solutions additional resources to continue the firm’s business growth.

“ATS came to Abel Solutions for assistance with a broad-based SharePoint and Nintex deployment, and recognized the considerable value that SharePoint brings to industrial sector firms like itself,” said Abel Solutions President Kevin Abel. “Working together, Abel Solutions and ATS can dramatically improve document and workflow management for companies everywhere.”
