ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Sept. 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inc. Magazine ranks Alternative No.166 on its 32nd annual Inc.500, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest private companies.

We've built a strong management team of experienced professionals with deep domain expertise and established employee development programs so that we are able to scale quickly while also maintaining quality. While I'm proud of the growth that we've achieved, it's important that we've managed this growth while providing a good working environment to our employees which was underscored by our #3 Best Place to Work in OC award by the Orange County Business Journal. We got the balance right."

Keena continues, "During 2013 we've continued to manage our growth effectively and invested in operational improvements and delivery tools that allow us to have better visibility into our business and run more efficiently. These operational improvements, coupled with a growing portfolio of SaaS products and annuity-based services that complement our ERP and Salesforce consulting services, mean that we're well positioned for continued growth and increasing profitability into 2014 and beyond."
