RALEIGH – Alphanumeric Systems has achieved what’s considered a major milestone in the information technology industry.

The company, which provides IT solutions and managed services across the southeast, recently completed a Statement on Auditing Standards, or SAS, No. 70 Type II Audit.

The SAS 70 defines standards used by auditors in assessing internal controls of a service organization when handling customer data. The audit tracks a company’s procedures over a six-month period. SAS 70 was developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

“Achieving the SAS 70, Type II compliance has been an incredible accomplishment for our organization,” said Steve Chase, Alphanumeric’s executive vice president. “This accomplishment marks a strong commitment to providing our customers with the highest level of service available in the market space.”

Alphanumeric has more than 300 employees operating in offices across the Carolinas as well as in Philadelphia.
