After taking SteelPivot's Linux training classes, I was immediately a more productive and effective employee.
Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) April 19, 2012
SteelPivot, Inc., a premium provider of Linux training, staffing and consulting services in Atlanta and Dallas, announced today that the company achieved a 450% revenue increase from 2010 to 2011, and a staff increase of 600%. The company attributes this amazing growth to their niche focus on providing 100% hands-on Linux infrastructure training to companies looking for ways to increase the productivity of their IT department.
“The harsh truth is most training companies teach hundreds of cookie-cutter classes using vendor-provided materials,” said Richard JB Campbell, CEO of SteelPivot. “That model is broken because it is focused primarily on helping individuals pass a certification test. Our clients are looking for ways to increase the real-world, hands-on experience and knowledge of their existing employees – classes aimed at certification exams simply miss the mark.”
Campbell, a technology entrepreneur, founded SteelPivot in 2008 after witnessing first-hand the problems his last company's clients faced when their IT teams struggled to support their critical business systems. At the same time, the economic downturn pushed companies to do more with less, and they began looking for ways to increase the knowledge, experience, and productivity of their existing employees instead of hiring additional staff. SteelPivot was positioned to provide the 100% hands-on Linux training classes that deliver the practical knowledge and experience companies need to get better results from their IT staff.
“If you’re serious about your career in Linux, SteelPivot’s training classes need to be at the top of your priority list,” said Roger Redman, a systems security analyst with Lockheed Martin. “You won’t just learn Linux in theory; you’ll gain real, practical knowledge and skills that you put into practice right away in their many hands-on labs. And the small class size means you have plenty of opportunities to ask questions, and great one-on-one access to the instructors. I took four Linux classes from SteelPivot, and each one taught me things I could use right away in my job. I was immediately a more productive and effective employee.”
To support the company’s growth, SteelPivot tripled the size of their Atlanta headquarters and moved to a more expansive location in the heart of downtown. This new office is easily accessible by clients across the southeast through its close proximity to Hartsfield International Airport and MARTA, the city’s public transit system. SteelPivot also recently opened a new regional office in Dallas, Texas to serve clients in the southwestern United States. The company has plans to expand into five additional markets in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom within the next two years.
