ALISO VIEJO, California—March 22, 2012—A rebounding economy and advanced cloud technology are helping to drive growth for Aliso Viejo, CA - headquartered Alternative Technology Solutions, which today announces recent growth results including an expanded corporate office, the addition of 17 employees and a 230% revenue growth for 2011. In the past year, Alternative has added more than 200 new customers growing to a total of 500 customers with a revenue growth from $2.3 million to $5.5 million.
"We positioned our headquarters in Orange County in order to tap into the hub of technology development and the growing biomedical industry, and it has been a successful decision. Many Fortune 500/1000 companies call this area their home, making it the perfect fit for our business targets," said Alternative CEO and founder Vivian Keena. "While barely a decade old, Aliso Viejo has facilitated our expansion while providing ideal proximity to some of our key markets including Orange County, Los Angeles and San Diego."
Launched at the end of 2009 with 9 employees, Alternative plans to heavily recruit for the local consulting space over the next nine months, with a projection of employing more than 60 employees by year's end. "We have been very fortunate to have experienced this amount of growth in just a couple short years. We've doubled our customer base in the span of just 11 months. We will continue to add to our team of highly skilled professionals to service the needs of our new customers," said Keena, a manufacturing automation industry veteran with more than 25 years experience.
The company's customer base ranges from start-ups to large multi-national manufacturers. Alternative provides services to customize, implement and optimize Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Enterprise Resource Management (ERP) software including Epicor and Salesforce in addition to their own proprietary programs. Alternative's total solutions include partnerships and products that help manufacturers achieve business results by leveraging their ERP and CRM technology investments.
Cloud technology is providing companies far better control over their hardware and software systems that, in turn, are improving performance and delivering enhanced return on investment. "The cloud puts the technology leverage back in the hands of manufacturers and enables companies to source best-of-breed applications for their specific needs with a lower total cost of ownership. Our strength is in integrating these applications so that manufacturers can get the most return from their investment. This approach is paying dividends for our clients and propelling our growth," said Keena.
