Our History

Over 40 Years’ Experience

Our history begins in 1979, as Argos Software was founded to focus on the specialized business management software needs of companies growing and distributing their harvests from California’s Central Valley. Companies in different markets were soon added and, over the years, we have developed a significant presence in the agri-business, third-party logistics (3PL), warehousing, cold storage and asset-based trucking. At the heart of our success is ABECAS Insight software, an accounting and warehouse management system in one that is ideal for any growing business looking to streamline warehouse operations.

The success of our software for growers, supply chain logistics, and many other types of businesses depends, in no small part, on the quality and value of our services. Argos’ services include planning, implementation, and on-going training opportunities that help customers succeed with our software. We hold a customer user conference every two years.

Joining Constellation Software

In 2016, Argos Software proudly became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Constellation Software, Inc., an industry powerhouse and the second-largest software company in Canada, only surpassed by Shopify. Constellation Software, Inc. is publicly traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol [TSX: CSU], a testament to its financial stability and growth.

One of the most remarkable aspects of Constellation’s business approach is its commitment to continuous improvement. The company specializes in acquiring software companies, often within specific industries, and then implements best practices to enhance their operations. Unlike many other corporate strategies, Constellation Software firmly believes in the long-term potential of its acquired businesses, and it has never sold off a single acquired company.

So, what does this mean for you? It signifies a long-term commitment to both Argos Software and our customer base. You can have confidence in the sustained support and resources that come from being part of the Constellation Software family. This partnership ensures that we are equipped to deliver innovative solutions, top-notch customer service, and unwavering reliability to meet your evolving needs. With Constellation’s backing, we look forward to a bright and prosperous future together.
