History

Alphatec was established in 1996 purely as a consultancy company.

Handling significant projects both nationally and internationally we supported large organisations through major operational change, and IT solutions were key to driving our clients’ businesses forward.

Alphatec evolved into the software company it is today, and although we still provide consultancy services our main focus is to provide our customers with specialist software, bespoke application development, change management consultancy and Business Intelligence expertise to transform and optimise business.
