Welcome to the Alliance Business Suite!

The Alliance Business Suite is a set of intelligent, extensible, multi-tenant business applications that enable users to jumpstart their business through the acceleration of several core aspects of any given business.

The Alliance Business Suite gives users a Full-Stack, Modular Application Framework built on top of the Alliance Business Platform.

Both client and server code is written in C#, allowing users to extend the product with their own code through Module libraries. It builds upon next-generation technologies such as Blazor, SignalR, Razor Pages, and MVC through ASP.NET Core, an open-source and cross-platform web UI framework for building web apps using .NET and C# with or without the use of JavaScript.

ABS Apps are composed of reusable web UI components implemented using C#, HTML, and CSS.

We are creating our applications in such a form that they deliver as much value to your business and cause as we can. They work primarily as an interface for users to manage their services, products, and cloud resources. But the truth is that isn't limited to just that.

Our applications are being developed to give you access to every functionality that we implement for our business, to power your business and vision as well. This is because if we can add value to our business and gain a competitive advantage through these tools, chances are you can too!

So far, we've created a few extensions and connectors for the Alliance Business Suite, but you can extend it too! Some of these extensions are open source, so feel free to check their code for extension reference.

Connectors are always free and you can find them on your ABS Extensions page, and some of our extensions have free tiers. You will get the Alliance Business Suite Community Edition, for free, with the following Modules:

  • ABS ContactSight. (CRM)

Getting Started

** Using Version 1.*.*

  • Install .NET 5 SDK (v5.0.100).
  • Install the latest edition (v16.8 or higher) of Visual Studio 2019 (Community, Professional, or Enterprise Editions) with the ASP.NET and web development workload enabled. Alliance Business Suite works with ALL editions of Visual Studio from Community to Enterprise. If you do not have a SQL Server installation available already and you wish to use LocalDB for development, you must also install the **.NET desktop development workload**.
  • Download a release or Clone the ABS. Portal repository to your local system using Git. Open the FenixAlliance.ABS.Portal.sln solution file and Build the solution. Make sure you specify FenixAlliance.ABS.Portal as the Startup Project and then Run the application.

Installing an official release:

Additional Instructions

  • If you have already installed a previous version of Alliance Business Suite and you wish to do a clean database install, simply point the DefaultConnection value in the ABS Portal Settings Manager to a fresh database record. This will trigger a re-install when you run the application which will execute the database installation scripts.
  • Every ABS Repo ignores appsettings.json by default, so as long as you don't delete the directive from .gitignore, you're cleared to submit a pull request.

Video Series

  • If you are getting started with Alliance Business Suite, a series of videos are available which explain how to install the product, interact with the user interface, and develop custom modules.


There is a separate Documentation repository which contains a variety of types of documentation for the Alliance Business Suite, including the C# API documentation for every library, which are is auto-generated using Doxify. The contents of the repository are published to Github Pages and are available at

Maintaining forward and backward compatibility is a key goal of the ABS. Therefore, the ABS now uses only additive versioning, which means any revision of the ABM following the "2.0" release will not:

  • Introduce new mandatory attributes on previously published entities, or change an optional attribute to be mandatory
  • Rename previously published attributes or entities
  • Remove previously published attributes

Logo and Trademark

The brand name Alliance Business Suite and its logos are trademarks of Fenix Alliance S.A.S in Colombia and Fenix Alliance Inc in other countries ("Fenix Alliance").

Fenix Alliance owns and oversees the trademarks for the ABS name and logos. We have developed this trademark usage policy with the following goals in mind:

  • We’d like to make it easy for anyone to use the ABS name or logo for community-oriented efforts that help spread and improve ABS.
  • We’d like to make it clear how ABS-related businesses and projects can (and cannot) use the ABS name and logo.
  • We’d like to make it hard for anyone to use the ABS name and logo to unfairly profit from, trick, or confuse people who are looking for official ABS resources.

Your access to and use of the Alliance Business Suite's source code is governed by the Fenix Alliance's End User License Agreement "EULA". If you don't agree to those terms, as amended from time to time, you are not permitted to access or use the Alliance Business Suite.

We welcome any contributions to the Alliance Business Suite development through pull requests on GitHub.

A note about your account and the privacy of your information.

The Alliance Passport Services engine is built on top of a highly compliant service to keep your identity private. This engine supports Facebook, Microsoft Accounts, Google+, LinkedIn, and many other identity providers, but you can also integrate your own.

We think that it's also worth pointing out that we DO NOT store any identity information into our databases; instead, that data is always encrypted and sent to the same systems that governments and enterprises worldwide are using to keep your data safe, and then we access that data by using industry-standard protocols so that you can rest assured that your sensitive information is protected through various security controls in addition to multi-factor authentication.
