About the company
Who we are
We started in 1990 as “Above Board Computer Consulting”. Our specialty then was building tailored database solutions, business consulting and business training. In 1999 we started developing time recording and invoicing software for our own internal use.
This progressed to creating solutions for business colleagues.
The interest in our Abtrac package grew exponentially and in 2004 we rebranded as Abtrac and focused our efforts on time based billing systems for businesses, targeting our software at construction industry professionals, infrastructure professionals and other consulting businesses who sell their time and expertise.

We work with an ever growing group of professionals to assist with their client billing.
Our Abtrac software represents our input and design expertise and the collective ideas and wishes of hundreds of our users.
While our main market concentration is in Australasia, Abtrac is now used by our clients all over the world.
We do this by our continued efforts to become as familiar as possible with the working environment of each and every business.
At Abtrac we don’t just provide software, we help businesses put in place a structure to support their business, independent of any individual within the business. This frees up everyone to concentrate on their biggest project – adding value to the business that is feeding them, in which the owners have invested their money, time and efforts.
In a time based billing business by the time the invoice hits the accounting system, the profit or loss is already history. So Abtrac sits ahead of the accounting system as a production management system managing the job from its first quote, to the final invoice. It ensures that everyone who needs to know what’s happening has access to real time in-depth information to appropriately match the billing for the work done. That way everybody wins, and there’s no surprises.
