Our Story

Alpha Technologies is a service disabled veteran owned small business headquartered in Hurricane, WV with a global datacenter located in South Charleston, WV. We are a business technology focused company. Guided by integrity, Alpha’s team of experts craft reliable and secure IT solutions with the same goal every time: to provide invaluable results and forge long-term relationships with our clients. Our comprehensive offerings allow clients to focus on growing their business while we manage their technology.

Douglas Tate, a West Virginia native, is the founder and CEO of Alpha Technologies. His military background includes a special operations command-grade assignment with the United Nations. Since retiring from the military, Doug has earned his bachelor’s degree in computer science, a master’s degree in applied computer science, an MBA, and is currently working to obtain his PhD in Leadership.

A strong work ethic and determination are characteristics Doug portrays in everything he does. Alpha Technologies reflects Doug’s entrepreneurial spirit by pairing ingenuity and security with business technology systems and communication solutions.

In order to stay ahead of the ever changing market, Alpha has aligned its core business model with what our clients desperately need: fast, less expensive and more secure ways of handling business communications, data storage, data security, and fail-safe backup systems.

“If you are seeking a vendor that has your best interests in mind, please consider Alpha. They are always willing to devote quality resources, thought and planning; the outcome is aimed at best-fit solutions and the end goal is your success. With all that is offered and coming, Alpha is staged to do just that – make you a success in your organization."

Dr. David J. Ayersman, Vice President of Technology and Library Services of New River Community and Technical College

“The initial project had huge impact; with Alpha’s help we enhanced services to fiber, upgraded network equipment and tied all offices into unified network and VOIP telephone system without costing us anything extra on a month-to-month basis.”

William E. Kelly, Director of Information Technology for the City of Beckley

“Even though I know we are one of Alpha’s smaller clients, I never feel that way, Doug and the staff of Alpha Technologies make me feel like I am one of their most important clients.”

Brian Donat, County Manager of Putnam County Commission

“Doug has been a mentor and guide to us as we’ve undergone many changes since first installing our network. He is an advocate for us with other companies and genuinely wants our organization to succeed. He’s a true extension of our staff, our 12th man.”

Dr. David J. Ayersman, Vice President of Technology and Library Services of New River Community and Technical College

“Service delivery is enhanced, positively impacting all of our departments by aiding them in communicating and collaborating effectively…These improvements would have never been possible, under the budget restrictions local government has faced over the last several years, without the guidance of Doug and his team.”

William E. Kelly, Director of Information Technology for the City of Beckley

“Doug always follows the golden rule and treats people the way he wants to be treated. I appreciate that I can go to him with any technical question and he takes the time to give me a truthful and thoughtful answer.”

Brian Donat, County Manager of Putnam County Commission

“Alpha has been instrumental in saving us an annual $50,000 in a staff role that is now augmented by Alpha tier 2 support services. We don’t need to maintain benefits, training or management for this role, saving additional resources. And the aid that we’ve received from Alpha over the years has likely saved us much, much more than this.”

Dr. David J. Ayersman, Vice President of Technology and Library Services of New River Community and Technical College

“Several years later I started looking to change the IT provider for the county offices. We had been previously working with several small IT firms and it seemed like whenever they had a turnover in staff we were left in the lurch. Alpha responded to our RFP and met all the criteria we were looking for: a large enough firm to always have experts on hand but still able to provide great local customer service.”

Brian Donat, County Manager of Putnam County Commission
