Our story

Our story begins in Asbury Park, NJ in the late 1970s, where founder and CEO Lorenzo Fiorentini was working as a programmer for the Asbury Park Board of Ed.

He saw an opportunity to leverage the (then) new technology of personal computers to allow schools to bring their financial work fully in-house with the aid of custom software. Largely from their kitchen table, he and his partner, Vice President Allison Meisenbacher, started laying the groundwork for what would eventually become SYSTEMS 3000.

Evolving and growing

In 1985, as our early software had rolled out to a handful of districts, SYSTEMS 3000 was officially incorporated, and the company expanded to include several employees who are still here today.

Today, we are a company of 32 people, supporting over 250 districts throughout the state of New Jersey. While our software has evolved over time, the family company culture remains. Lorenzo and Allison’s children, Elisa and Giancarlo, joined our team to carry on their parents' vision for SYSTEMS.
