Location, location, location… At Abacalab, our mission is to create better mobile computing tools to help people on location — in factories, laboratories, the great outdoors and all of the other places where people don’t work at a desk. Giant strides have been made in mobile devices in the last twenty years, and we believe they can help working adults as well as texting teens. Our passion is creating mobile applications that help people handle complicated workflows and information — “rocket science” on the go. Our vision is a world where computing power can be at your fingertips wherever you are, and more importantly your observations, understanding and creativity can be connected intuitively and conveniently wherever you work.


Abacalab was founded by laboratory scientists in 2003 to help knowledge workers who work outside the office by developing cutting-edge mobile computing technologies that meet their needs. Abacalab is a small privately held company with headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware. Our top-notch team members have broad backgrounds in computing and a variety of scientific fields as well as communication and graphic arts. Together we analyze the nuances of modern dynamic work environments and create innovative mobile software that helps people spend more time doing what they love and less time as human copy machines.
