In February, AbacusNext acquired CloudNine Real-time, which provides hosting services in the QuickBooks market, and Results CRM, a cloud-based product that also interfaces with QuickBooks Online.
The acquirer said it intends to expand the product lines and Giardina said that will also happen with OfficeTools. "With AbacusNext, we get this oporutnity to take this to a bigger picture," he said.
OfficeTools markets the desktop WorkSpace practice management system, which Giardina says is the only package to support the entire Practice Management LifeCycle. The company also markets the WorkSpace Portal, which offers online document sharing, invoicing, and payment portal combined with appointment request systems, client check-in kiosk and online staff time sheets.
Giardina said the company will discuss plans for the cloud at its Accelerate user conference on June 20 through 22 in Las Vegas, Nev.
