Motto / Slogan: Service First

Rick Braniff
Founding Father

JJ Braniff
Family Business Patriarch

In the beginning...

James Jay Braniff (JJ Braniff) worked for Burroughs Corporation throughout his career, beginning in the early 1950s. He started as a service technician working on various banking/business machines. JJ was known as the "Machine Whisperer" as he could fix anything. He always said, "A machine is only as good as the service you provide to support and back it up." JJ worked his way through the ranks and retired as the Western Regional Service Manager for Burroughs, managing nine states. JJ is the proud father of 7 children.


In 1983, Richard J. Braniff, with the assistance of JJ Braniff, started Automated Business Systems selling various check signers, endorsers, and encoders. From this small beginning, ABS was born. The motto and direction for ABS, from the beginning, was "SERVICE FIRST." Rick was a proud US Veteran and a graduate of Sam Houston State University. He was the father of 2 daughters, Emalee and Natalee Braniff (Who attend Texas A&M University), and a stepdaughter, Rachel Ballard Corbell. She is married and just recently had a baby boy named Colton.




We are now one of the larger specialized equipment companies in Texas. Martin Braniff is now the president of ABS, and he began his career in 1987 with NCR Corporation. In 2000, Martin went to work for Fidelity Information Services (FIS) in their Output Solutions Division. In late 2012 he took over the management of Automated Business Systems. Martin holds a BBA degree in Marketing Management from the McCombs Business School at The University of Texas at Austin (1987).

ABS will always be rooted in these humble beginnings and stand by our long-time tradition of "SERVICE FIRST."
