Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) May 10, 2013
Appointment-Plus, the world’s leading provider of online scheduling software, hosted a job fair on May 7 that attracted dozens of professionals looking to join the growing Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) company.
“Scottsdale, Arizona has become an appealing location for both established companies and start-ups,” said Bob La Loggia, CEO and founder of Appointment-Plus. “With its business-friendly environment, great talent, and strong start-up support groups, the Arizona technology industry is poised for continued rapid growth.”
Entrepreneur magazine recently named Arizona one of the top 10 places to start a business. The magazine cited the state’s startup community, innovation and investment resources.
The state has also been successful in attracting established companies to relocate or open new facilities within Arizona. Recent examples include:
- Netherlands and Luxembourg-based STEALTH Software chose Arizona as the site of its U.S. headquarters.
- New York-based ZocDoc announced plans to hire 650 employees at its new Scottsdale office.
- General Motors selected Chandler as the site of its fourth Information Technology Innovation Center.
“With our abundant sunshine, open-door culture, robust innovation ecosystem and affordable living, Arizona is an ideal place for the next generation of innovators and market-leading companies to start new enterprises,” said Steven Zylstra, president and CEO of the Arizona Technology Council.
To foster continued interest in the Arizona tech sector, Appointment-Plus is launching an intern program this summer. Interns will see firsthand how a SaaS company operates while assisting marketing and sales efforts.
“Our new intern program will enlighten students on the day-to-day tasks of running a SaaS business, while gaining experience within their specific areas of study,” said La Loggia.
