Improving Enterprises ("Improving") a technology consulting and training firm, has finalized an agreement to acquire Alphaware Training Center in Houston, Texas. Already a four-time Inc 500/5000 recipient (2009 through 2012), the transaction will expand its national presence in the Southwest United States. Combined revenues are expected to increase by more than 20% in 2013.

This merger represents the third successful integration of Improving's "Enterprise Model" – An innovative business strategy focused on merging service companies who share a genuine commitment to excellence, service, and culture. The model combines localized incentives and ownership behavior with the power and benefit of a single overarching brand and support structure.

"The secret of this model is to truly preserve the local ownership behavior and accountability which has already made these companies successful," states Curtis Hite, CEO of Improving Enterprises.

"The secret of this model is to truly preserve the local ownership behavior and accountability which has already made these companies successful," states Curtis Hite, CEO of Improving Enterprises. "This enables us to effectively leverage the cornerstone of Improving's success – sincere public relations and overwhelming employee participation. By capitalizing on Alphaware's established professional relationships, we intend to support Houston's technology community in ways that don't exist today."

Alphaware's training offerings are complementary to Improving's Training division which focuses on Project Management, Agile, Microsoft (.Net), and Java application development services. However, the merger will also extend the breadth of service offerings available to the Houston office.

"For 10 years we have provided comprehensive training services to our local customers," says Peter Babirad, General Manager, Improving Houston, "however, we are now equipped to bring the community several new and exciting services including more than 100 technology training classes, world-class User Experience (UX) teams, and access to Improving's offshore alternative called Rural Sourcing."
