Founded in 1986, Alternative Technology, Inc. is a leading thin-client/server-centric computing distributor with a focus on LAN, WAN and Internet implementations that integrate voice and data. As a technical distributor, Alternative provides its customers with education and technical support services to insure the quality and profitability of all of its resellers' installations. The Company sells to a VAR base of about 3,200 customers in the United States.

Alternative differentiates itself from competitors by taking a consultative approach to providing its clients with pre-sale and post-sale support services. The Company will conduct seminars for VAR clients, accompany its clients on sales calls if needed and assist in solution design and configuration during the pre-sale effort. Included in the Company's value-added package of services is certification training for Citrix and Microsoft engineers, technical support and integration of system software and the more traditional financial and fulfillment role of a distributor.

CHB's interest in Alternative Technology was sold in 2006.
