Alphatec has been established for over 25 years and is now a global supplier of market leading software solutions.

Established, in 1996, we began purely as a consultancy company handling significant projects both nationally and internationally.  One of our early projects was to support The Royal Bank of Scotland deliver automated billing and the integration of multiple IT platforms.

This project highlighted that the key to driving businesses forward was IT solutions, and the project was the springboard for Alphatec to evolve into the global software supplier it is today.

Alphatec still provides change management consultancy services, but our main focus now, is to provide specialist software, bespoke application development, and Business Intelligence expertise to transform and optimise our customers businesses.
