Axiom Business Systems Axiom Business Systems was incorporated in 1983, with John and Anne Field as the principal directors. As an Australian owned company, Axiom Business Systems has grown steadily since its foundation to become an International organization, serving a varied client base with financial and customized management systems, in both Australia and North America. Axiom Business Systems has maintained a stable and effective ownership and management structure, with the original directors still holding full ownership of the company’s shares. After many years of installing and supporting customizable accounting solutions, in 1998 a large cemetery in Australia commissioned Axiom Business Systems to design a highly integrated cemetery management suite, linking funeral order reservations, cemetery maps, financial systems and public enquiries. After successfully implementing the system into a number of cemeteries in Australia, the Axiom Cemetery Management Suite was then launched into the North American market at the International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association Conference in Orlando during April 2002.
