Transforming the way buildings are maintained

Established in January 2014, Uptick (formally aBAS Property Solutions) were formed with the purpose to develop a suite of cloud solutions for organisations that repair, maintain and service buildings.

The company was founded by Aidan Lister (CEO), Sean O’Connor (COO), and Kim Rockman (Investor) and as at April 2017 has grown into a team of 21 full-time employees with HQ situated in Melbourne, Victoria.

The primary product developed was aBAS FS – developed specifically for routine maintenance services mainly Fire Protection structured around the Australian Standard. This niche was seen as the shortcoming within the field service market. 

In January 2015, ABAS was delighted to take an investment from Tempus Partners, a Venture Capital company with a key strategic fit and extensive experience in guiding seed stage companies in the B2B and B2E space to maturity.

Through rapid customer referrals, the FS product and customer base grew rapidly. Very quickly several key players within the Facility Management industry investigated the dramatic changes from their suppliers and also got onboard.

Due to the inherent differences in workflow and data requirements, the aBAS FM product was launched late 2016.


This year May 1st 2017, in conjunction with a successful second round of investment provided by Tempus Partners and Equity Venture Partners. To read more please view press release here

In conjunction with this second round funding, aBAS went through a major rebranding exercise to become Uptick Pty Ltd.
