Company Profile

ASL was founded in Toronto, Canada in 1989 as an Engineering and Management Consulting company focused on Information Technology. Numerous HR software development projects led to the creation of one of Canada's first fully-integrated Human Resources Information Systems for the PC. Since 1989 ASL has continued to expand the scope of its development efforts. In 1991, the company released a revolutionary, fully-integrated MS-DOS based HRIS for the IBM PC and Compatibles. Within one year of the release of this product, ASL had one of the largest customer bases of any HR Software or consulting company in Canada. The success of this release was followed closely in late 1992 by the release of a fully-integrated, Client/Server HRIS for Microsoft Windows v3.1 - a Canadian First. The product received rave reviews at the 1993 HRPAO Conference & Trade Show held in Toronto. In 1995, ASL opened its offices in the UK to serve clients in the UK and Europe. At SoftWorld 1996 in London, ASL UK demonstrated one of the most feature-packed solutions at the Tradeshow and garnered partnership requests from major payroll providers in England, Scotland and Wales. By 1997 HR technology was beginning to migrate from Client/Server to Web-based platforms.

ASL decided that in order to stay ahead of its competitors it would move to developing solutions for use via the Internet. The result has been a resounding success and our current suite of .NET-based solutions continue to build upon the rich legacy of our market-leading software solutions for HR.
