Company Information

Print. That Connects.

Applied Business Systems has been a full service print shop for over 30 years, and over time we’ve developed our specialty areas around transactional printing, marketing and direct mail. Utilizing some of the most advanced equipment and technologies in the industry, we bring unparalleled mailing services to large and small businesses across America.

At our corporate headquarters located in Western New York, both manufacturing and business processes are streamlined to provide fast turnaround times and deliver the highest quality mailing services around. What sets ABS apart from most print providers is the true partnership approach we take with every client. Put plainly, when our customers win, we win. Defining customer goals and throwing every tool in our arsenal at each project has consistently been our path to success.

The philosophy at Applied Business Systems has always been that the company/client relationship is the ultimate partnership. When you succeed, we succeed and vise versa. We take great care to understand the business model and goals of each client so that we can deliver hard quantifiable results. Utilizing the latest technologies in digital print, variable data and electronic information delivery, we find solutions that customers never thought were possible.

In an industry that has seen plenty of innovation over the last century, but little in the past decade, we try to consistently push the boundaries of what is possible. Establishing online print feeds from today’s accounting, CRM, business management and government management softwares should never be a stumbling block, it should be the norm. Leveraging technology platforms created by ABS, we offer fully customizable solutions in web to print, electronic information delivery and much more.

Founders Jim and Connie DiSalvo stress to the entire ABS team that our goal is to always exceed expectations in quality and service as well as doing whatever it takes to thrill our customers. Many ABS employees have been doing just that for a long time, some of them for literally decades. In fact, nearly half of our staff have 10+ years of experience at ABS, a dedication that isn’t easily found these days from your average print provider. Our elite team of sales and customer service experts, programmers, developers, and production/logistics staff are among the best in the industry – and it shows in the results we deliver.

We know that there are a lot of printers out there that can put ink on paper, or mail service providers that can stuff and address an envelope. Your ABS team will partner with you to understand the challenges you face. Together we will come up with creative solutions that enhance quality, lower costs and increase profitability. Our team is ready to help.

Founded in 1980 by Jim and Connie DiSalvo, ABS was originally launched as print distributor, servicing local Western New York companies and specializing in Forms Management. Seeing the opportunity to create a consultative approach, Jim and Connie helped organizations navigate through the confusion of two part, three part or continuous business forms that made up the industry at that time. With over a decade of previous print-industry experience, they excelled almost immediately.

In the 90s ABS became an early adopter of black only Digital Printing and expanded more into the manufacturing side of printing, and remains on the cutting edge of the industry today. With new technology in hand, ABS grew alongside some of its largest clients, and built a strong foundation in the Customer Communications segment of the printing world.

Still a family owned business, ABS is constantly searching out new opportunities, partnerships and technologies. In 2007 ABS expanded to Digital Color printing, and expanded yet again in 2015 has entered into the electronic communications sector with personalized landing pages (PURLS), email campaigns and website design, continually growing its portfolio of clients in the marketing sector and beyond.
