Azure Horizons has Acquired Abacus Technical Solutions


Oak Park, IL— Azure Horizons Inc. announced today the acquisition of Abacus Technical Solutions in River Forest, IL, enabling the two IT companies to better serve their customers and community.

“Chris Demeur, Owner of Abacus Technical Solutions, said “We’ve been working together as friendly competitors for years. We began to realize that we could do a much better job for our clients if we teamed up.”

Positive Customer Impact

Many customers have already benefited from the unofficial partnership as they have been working with each other’s clients in a limited capacity for months now. “It’s just great to be able to discuss a customer’s situation with another technology person and come up with the best possible solution/s for them.” said Demeur. “When you have a couple people brainstorming solutions as opposed to just one, you will more often get a better thought out solution.”

“Our respective missions have been very similar. To provide businesses of all sizes superior IT support that includes best practices to ensure data and network availability is guaranteed…no excuses.” Keith said, “Our mission is to provide Superior IT Support to small and medium businesses with no in house IT support staff. We want to be the IT support department for those businesses.

“Azure Horizons has been managing the technology needs of my business for about 10 years,” said Susan D. Smith, Principal of Law Offices of Susan D. Smith. I am the owner of a law firm and am dependent upon having computers that function at a high level, and also on backing up documents and data properly. I have found Azure Horizons to be extremely

responsive to our needs, comprehensive with their resources and service, as well as affordable. They keep my business up to date and running smoothly from a technology standpoint. Whether it is a one man firm or a multi-dimensional corporation, I believe Azure Horizons has the resources and knowledge to keep you ahead of the game.”

Positive Community Impact

In addition to better customer support, this acquisition “should allow us to grow faster. We already have included new hires in our business plan as we hit specific benchmarks. This economy needs more jobs and we hope to bring that with this acquisition. We will need techs, admins, etc. as we grow.”

Azure Horizons also does a lot of work with not-for-profits in the area and has been recycling donated computers for them. “We take them in, mix and match parts and see if we can get them back in to service. It isn’t a recommended practice for a not for-profit business but it’s a great way to keep old computers out of landfills and help not-for profits leverage technology to operate more efficiently.” said Demeur.

Founded in 1997, Azure Horizons Inc. is a community leader in business IT support. The company offers a wide range of products and services designed to give any sized business the infrastructure and support it needs to keep up with their competition, protect their data and stay out of cyber trouble.
