Alternative Technology Solutions, the leading ERP and CRM solution and service provider that brings the best of the cloud to manufacturers, today announced that it has been named a top minority-owned business in Orange County by the Orange County Business Journal.

“Orange County is home to so many businesses that are growing and thriving—it’s an honor to be named among the top performers in the area,” said Vivian Keena, Alternative CEO. This marks Alternative’s second appearance on the list of largest minority-owned businesses in Orange County. The 2015 list is comprised of 68 minority-owned Orange County businesses with revenues totaling over $14 billion.

With an 18% increase in Orange County-based employees over the past year, Alternative has continued to grow its presence both locally and nationally. “The talent pool in the greater Orange County area is incredibly deep and we’ve worked hard to attract and retain the best in our industry,” said Keena. “We’re looking forward to growing our Orange County team over the years to come as we continue to build and deliver cloud solutions and services that help our customers get more value from their technology investments.”

The recent award adds to Alternative’s impressive accomplishments as an Orange County standout, including past awards as a Best Place to Work and Top Women-Owned Business. Key to Alternative’s success is its focus on engaging its team with a fun, fast-paced, collaborative culture.

“As the economy improves, the competition grows among employers looking for the best talent available,” says Keena. “Recruiting and retaining a great team, for us, means providing opportunities for ongoing training and skill-building as well as showing each employee how she or he contributes to our long-term vision to keep growing and providing the best solutions and services to our customers.”

Since its founding in 2009, Alternative has evolved from its original model as a pure services company into focusing on bringing the best cloud to the market with partners including NetSuite and Salesforce. “Through this change, we’ve worked hard to hold onto our services roots which is driven by our passion to work with customers to collaboratively find and build solutions to their business needs,” explains Keena. “Our team of experts is what enables this and we look forward to growing the team significantly in 2015.”
