IRVINE, Calif. — AutoAlert Inc., a technology and training company helping auto dealers identify and capture existing but unrecognized business opportunities, announced today it has been named one of Orange County Register’s “Top 100 Workplaces.”
AutoAlert employs 60 people at its Irvine, Calif., headquarters and another 50 in field operations. Founded in 2002, the company has expanded its facilities five times since, most recently in early 2013. Today, the company headquarters at 9050 Irvine Center Drive measure 20,000 sq. feet, a 100% increase from its prior location.
Orange County Register ranked AutoAlert as the 7th best small company employer in Orange County, Calif., based on reviews of employee contributions by its editorial staff. The publication surveyed more than 1,000 companies in total to identify the final 100 best company workplaces in the county.
“AutoAlert has enjoyed a 60 percent compounded annual growth rate and in 2013 alone added 1,200 new auto dealership franchise customers. As a result, we have added staff and capabilities to support critical customer services like customer care, help desk and live daily customer sales training,” said Boyd Warner, CEO of AutoAlert, Inc.
Workers rated their companies based on a number of workplace factors. Overall employee rankings for all companies surveyed were individual feeling appreciated by the company; a strong belief in the company’s direction; confidence in the business’ leadership; and sense the job performed is meaningful.
The AutoAlert solution, which helps auto dealers identify sales hidden within their customer database, is helping dealers sell from five to 50 or more additional vehicles a month to their existing customers, according to the company.
“We are honored that the Orange County Register has named AutoAlert as one of the best places to work in Orange County,” Warner added. “This community offers us a workforce having excellent technical abilities as well as work ethic.
