Jon HoialmenFounder

In 1977, after graduating from college, Jon began doing data processing for various companies including the Red Cross in Atlanta. He eventually started working exclusively with dental labs and he began to realize dental labs needed a more efficient way to manage cases. This was a time period when the market for dental software was non-existent.

In his basement, Atlanta Based Systems was formed when Jon began writing, System One, the first software program catered to dental labs. System One was released in 1980 and it revolutionized the dental laboratory industry. For the first time dental labs were able to efficiently keep track of cases thereby increasing their productivity.

As technology has advanced so has Atlanta Based Systems. Jon continued to work hand in hand with dental labs to create our newest software Evolution; thereby, continuing the legacy of being the innovative leader of dental lab management software.

It has been close to 40 years since Jon’s vision of creating dental lab management software. Jon takes great pride in the company he created and continues to monitor dental labs and the industry he has spent a great portion of his life striving to make even greater.

“All in all I really like ABS. Evolution has helped with case tracking thru the lab. When technicians look…. They can see what needs to be done each day. We can pull up information without having to leave the desk & know where the case is at. ABS customer service is very helpful.”

“Hey, just wanted to tell you all thanks for being so helpful during our ‘transition’ with DDX. Today, just now, Midwestern sent photos through DDX and they ‘magically’ appeared in Evolution’s images tab, AND, I didn’t have to touch a thing! That was so totally awesome, I just had to tell you! Thanks again everyone!”
