Currently the growing company has approximately 115 associates with plans to add nearly 25 more in the coming year to help support its expanded client base and solutions development organization.
"The selection of Atlanta as our corporate headquarters will help strengthen our ability to drive future growth, hire talented associates and deliver value to our clients and shareholders," said Robert E.

The move strategically positions the company in a location that will provide greater ease of access to its clients and investors throughout the world. Additionally, Atlanta is recognized by the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce as the 'Nation's Health IT Capital.'
