Why growing MATs choose iAbacus.

Empowering

iAbacus empowers people, building their capacity to self-evaluate and think strategically.

Successful people naturally look at what they do with a view to doing it better. They constantly evaluate performance and plan improvements. iAbacus unleashes this powerful potential in everyone that uses it.

Quick-to-launch

iAbacus is loaded with a library of templates designed specifically for your country and sector. These time-saving templates eliminate the need to start from scratch and help you deploy the tool quickly.

Collaborative

Enable teamwork and collaboration with shared evaluations and action plans.

Collect personal and team perspectives to develop an organisation-wide evaluation rather than top-down assessment. Not only that, but a collaborative action plan that people contribute to, is often a plan they'll commit to.

Insightful

Discover deep insights about performance and effectiveness that go much deeper than data.

Behind every abacus bead is someone's evaluation, analysis and action planning. When shared, this reveals insights that go much deeper than data. It shows why things are happening and how they'll be improved.

Progressive

Demonstrate improvements and progress over time in a uniquely visual way.

The movement of a person's abacus beads from left to right demonstrates their progress over time. This visual method motivates users and encourages a continuous cycle of evaluation and improvement planning.
