South Florida’s information technology industry is competitive and makes standing out from the pack a challenge for just about any company.
Alturna-Tech seems to have a game plan figured out. The Boca Raton based IT firm reported revenue of $324,000 in 2014. In 2016, that number rose to $7.29 million through a strategy of tailored one-on-one service.
“We meet with companies, we understand their pain points, what projects they’ve got going, so we get very detailed,” said found and CEO Paul Goldberg.
Alturna-Tech – a spin on alternative technology sets out to revamp companies’ IT infrastructure by assisting with the transition from legacy technologies to the cloud where internet data is stored remotely rather than on physical servers.
The company also offers help with software integration and hardware installation, among other services. The firm employees 12 full-time staffers, in addition to independent contractors, though Goldberg said he expects that number to grow in the coming months as the company’s customer base grows, too.
Prior to founding Alturna-Tech in 2013, Goldberg was an executive at another local IT consulting firm. It wasn’t long before he had an epiphany.
“Instead of sharing the money with another company, why don’t I do it on my own?” he said he asked himself.
The rest is history.
