AtlanticBT Celebrates Ten Year Anniversary with 60 Percent Growth
April 09, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsRALEIGH, N.C. Atlantic Business Technologies, Inc., a full service web development and Internet solutions company offering end-to-end services including professional business website design, programming, hosting and Internet marketing, today announced continued growth and success despite the recent economic downturn.
Since its founding in 1998, AtlanticBT has sustained profitable growth averaging more than 40 percent per year. In 2008 alone, the company grew 60 percent by adding to its growing base of local and national accounts. With nearly 600 clients and growing, the company recently expanded its office space and has hired ten new employees over the past year, raising the total to nearly 30 full-time personnel. Internal growth has been supplemented by the acquisition of two smaller firms in the past two years, Praxis Studios and eSearch Logistics. These acquisitions expanded AtlanticBT`s clientele and increased market share within North Carolina. In addition, AtlanticBT leveraged eSearch`s staffing and recruiting niche with a national presence and preferred vendor status with Management Recruiters International (MRI).
AtlanticBT credits its ability to thrive in a sub-par market to its targeted approach to meeting client needs through customized solutions with a focus on the highest-quality customer service. "Of late, we`ve seen a large upswing of SMBs leveraging our solutions to take advantage of holes in the market left by larger players failing in current economic conditions," said Jon Jordan, founder and president, AtlanticBT. "Offering streamlined solutions, we`ve given our customers a way to maximize digital marketing strategies and optimize website operations with personalized consultation every step of the way. Bucking the trend, our business has been thriving and is a true testament to our commitment in providing solutions tailored entirely to our clients' needs."
After ten years delivering news in print format, Passive Component Industry Magazine (PCI) turned to AtlanticBT to go 100 percent digital. The transition to an electronic magazine cuts printing costs and distribution time associated with delivering news to Europe and Asia. Accompanying the digital magazine, AtlanticBT built a new website dedicated to the global passive component industry containing archived issues and enabling PCI to collect and disseminate data on a timelier basis as it relates to the various markets worldwide.
"To ride out the economic storm, it`s imperative to do more with less," said Dennis Zogbi, CEO and founder of Paumanok Publications, publisher of PCI Magazine. "With AtlanticBT, monetizing digital media radically lowers costs while better serving the information requirements of the global passive component industry."
In addition, AtlanticBT completed a large-scale redesign project for TrainingIndustry.com, the world`s leading portal for searching and accessing information about the training industry. TrainingIndustry.com needed a technology partnership that would offer superior information delivery, better search engine positioning and increased flexibility for future advancements.
"Today, any amount of downtime can mean lost productivity, lost revenue, lost customers, and lost opportunities," concluded Jordan. "Transitioning into digital media not only realizes automatic return on investment, but enables further benefits associated with electronic marketing and media. That`s redefining ROI - return on investment and return on information."
