Abacus comes from the Latin abaci, which has its origins in the Greek words abax or abakon (meaning “table” or “tablet”) that, in turn, possibly originated from the Semitic word abq, meaning “sand.” The abacus is one of many types of counting devices that are used to count large numbers. It has been used in various forms across many cultures and millennia.

Riffing on this history, Abikiss – using databases and browsers rather than rods and beads – began as a way for organizations and their employees to track their hours each day. This simple calculation evolved over time into a service that offers users the ability to track prospects, create proposals, manage production, and generate invoices. The enterprise version offers even more features to measure, improve, optimize, and automate all kinds of business processes.
