Alta Vista Technology: Taking a Look Back at 2021

Another year down and more to celebrate! We thought it would be a fun idea to take a look back at the happenings of Alta Vista Technology and what 2021 brought to us. Let’s start with growth.

Record-Breaking Growth

Alta Vista Technology once again saw it’s biggest year in the history of the company. We nearly doubled our new customer base from 2020 while hiring some of the best talent in the industry to support our customers. This past year our team has made it their mission to make sure every customer’s needs are fully met while providing guidance and suggestions on how their systems and processes can be improved. As our team continues to grow, so does our company skillset and expertise. Our team has been nothing short of amazing in 2021.

Award Season

2021 was a huge year for awards. We cemented our spot as the number 1 Sage Intacct reseller on leading customer review site G2 and were named the leader for summer, fall, and now winter. Bob Scott named us a top 100 VAR in the country as well as a VAR Star, a VAR that continues to grow and set the standard for other accounting software resellers. More impressively though was our rise in Accounting Today’s VAR 100 by nearly 20 spots and our 4th year straight of being named to the Inc 5000, an extremely rare feat.


It was also a big year for Alta Vista and Sage Intacct. We took home Sage Intacct Partner of the Half in half 1 and after a year of hard work, we were also named the Sage Intacct Growth Partner of the year for 2021.

“We continue our mission of taking businesses from their on-premises solution that is holding them back to a cloud solution that is accessible from anywhere they have internet access. We took this year to really examine where our business was headed and what it was going to take to make 2021 a success and our team went out and executed flawlessly. I couldn’t be prouder of what we have achieved as a team this year and what we are going to accomplish in 2022.”
