Yep. There was a time in Sweden where quite a few businesses ran on ABC machines from DIAB, networked using DNET cards running X.25 on a RS-422 token ring. Record processing was done using ISAM instructions in the excellent structured Basic that ran on those machines. It performed very well and was much easier to use than COBOL. And that was mid-80s! For business continuity, the DNET cards were made available with ISA interface, and the Basic interpreter was ported to PCs. That particular dialect of BASIC was a decent general-purpose language, and fast enough to implement decent interactive business applications running in text mode. There were serious accounting and ERP systems built on that.
