Aldridge Enters Austin Market with Acquisition of Clyde Bennett & Associates

Provider of EMR software solutions and IT support will operate as an Aldridge subsidiary

Aldridge (www.aldridge.com), a provider of information technology (IT) outsourcing with elite first-response support, has established a strong foothold in the important Austin, Texas market. Aldridge announced the completion of its acquisition of Clyde Bennett & Associates (www.cwbserv.com), a reseller of electronic medical records (EMR) solutions that also provides IT services for medical practices throughout the United States.

Aldridge has retained the Clyde Bennett & Associates name for its new Austin subsidiary.

The acquired company’s founder, Clyde Bennett, remains as President of the subsidiary.

Aldridge has retained all Clyde Bennett & Associates employees.

“Austin is a hotbed of small and midsize businesses (SMBs) that are experiencing rapid growth, so it has been on our strategic roadmap for some time,” said Aldridge President and COO Patrick Wiley. “We are excited about providing simplified IT operations, faster issue response and Aldridge’s senior knowledge to the thousands of potential client companies in Austin.”

For the past five years, Austin has ranked number one among major U.S. markets on The Business Journals’ ranking of small-business vitality. In 2014, Aldridge’s other two core markets, Houston and Dallas-Fort Worth, are ranked number five and number 13 on the list respectively.

“Joining with Aldridge provides our company the boost of technical resources necessary to sustain our continued growth,” Bennett said. “We look forward to expanding our EMR software solutions to medical practices in Houston and Dallas as well.”

This is the second acquisition in less than a month for Aldridge, which recently announced the acquisition of Houston-based IS Support, Inc. Clyde Bennett & Associates adds deep capabilities in healthcare, which is a market that Aldridge considers a growth opportunity.

“The healthcare market is undergoing rapid technology transformation due to the government incentives related to electronic medical records, and Clyde Bennett & Associates is well positioned to guide medical practices through that complex process,” said Wiley. “It has never been more important for medical practices to leverage IT investment to contain costs while maintaining the highest patient care standards.”

Access to Aldridge’s mature and growing managed services practice will enable Clyde Bennett & Associates to penetrate further into medical practices throughout the U.S.

With the acquisition of Clyde Bennett & Associates, Aldridge has more than 75 employees and serves more than 600 clients throughout the United States.

Aldridge offers an unusual guarantee, promising to resolve 100 percent of service tickets for customers, along with the ability to walk away from a managed services contract and get a refund of any service-related fees during the first 100 days of a contract term. Aldridge gives business executives and IT professionals a way to save time, energy and money through a broad range of outsourced custom IT services, such as:

Managed Services
