Abilis Solutions is an Information Technology (IT) company that designs, develops and implements custom IT projects as well as turn-key software solutions for vertical markets. Abilis Solutions also provides integration services to in-house IT departments and partners, in addition to offering IT project recovery services.

Abilis Solutions is a private company headquartered in Montreal, Canada. It employs nearly 200 people. In 2009, over 60% of Abilis Solutions revenues were from the US and over 75% of revenues were from outside Quebec, whilst over 75% of the development work was produced from the Abilis Innovation Center located in downtown Montreal.

Brief Company History[edit]

Founded in 1996, the company grew from its base in downtown Montreal, focusing on servicing large public and private organizations. In 2008, Abilis added Info-Sys Enterprise, a management solution for the propane and petroleum distribution industries to its product portfolio. In 2009, the Info-Sys product offering was expanded to include mobile devices used by on-the-road technicians.

In June 2009, Abilis Solutions acquired xwave New England Corp. from Bell Aliant; adding the subsidiary Abilis New England, based in Portland, ME. This acquisition brought business intelligence, healthcare and financial sector expertise to the company, as well as adding the CORIS Offender Management System to Abilis’ product portfolio. Abilis completely rebuilt the CORIS application, in .NET, creating one of the web-based offender management systems on the market.

The company's rapid growth continued in 2010.[1] In June 2010, Investissement Québec (formerly known as SGF) made an investment of $7 million CAD in Abilis[2][3] which is earmarked to contribute to the acquisition plan being pursued by Abilis.

In September 2010, Abilis Solutions’ customer, the Virginia Department of Corrections, won the Governor's Technology Award[4] (given at the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Innovative Technology Symposium) in the “IT as Efficiency Driver” category for its CORIS implementation, which manages over 90,000 offenders, making it the largest, modern, web-based offender management system deployment in North America.

Abilis Solutions’ customers include Fortune 500 companies, several US government agencies, airlines, healthcare and financial services.
