BTL Technologies, Inc.-Advancing and Expanding New Horizons

Mr. William Clark Kent opened BTL Technologies, Inc. in 2005 after retiring from the U.S. Air Force and serving his country for over 22 years.  BTL provides medical and management services/staffing as well as IT management technologies.  With one employee and after the first contract award in 2006, the company began climbing the preverbal ladder of success.

In the past two years, BTL Technologies has grown by 200% creating approximately seventy jobs in 8 different states. The firm’s success comes from driving sustainability and consistent outcomes, through delivering a great service to their customers by providing leading customer-focused solutions, which is based on managing and enhancing organizational effectiveness.  Mr. Kent states, “Retaining our greatest resource - our people - is a key ingredient for BTL’s success.  Where there is competition among small business, there are bidding opportunities and contract awards thus increasing the company cast of dedicated staff.  Not only has the company added more personnel in the areas of human resources, business development and accounting, but it has increased their office space four-fold from 640 sq. ft. to 2600 sq. ft.

Certifications through the Small Business Administration‘s 8(a) Business Development Program and small disadvantaged business and the Veteran’s Administration’s service disabled veteran program has opened doors for BTL in the federal contracting arena.  The company’s recent growth has been primarily in support of the United States Army facilitating Medical Administration Professionals, Virtualization Enterprise Information Technology Specialists and Communication’s Experts to the U.S. Army Medical Division and the U.S. Army Medical Command, gaining a total of $6M in new federal contracts going into FY2011.   An ardent supporter of the Warfighter, BTL has been pivotal to advancing the mission of both the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Army in the health care arena.

Through its marketing efforts, BTL was able to get a foot on the General Services Administration’s Federal Supply Schedules securing IT and medical services contract awards.  BTL has invested in software systems to provide audit support into their accounting practices and in talented individuals in the field.  
 
BTL is headquartered in San Antonio with regional offices in Washington DC and Montgomery, AL offers its services throughout the nation.  Mr. Kent recognizes that diligent preparation and attention to detail are essential to long term, effectual contract performance with its customers.  A perfect example is when BTL provided and performed successfully on an IT service contract to the Medical Information Services Flight at Malcolm Grow Medical Center, Andrews AFB and for more than three years, provided healthcare professionals to augment the Wilford Hall Medical Center Medical Evaluation Board.  Because BTL has a specialized body of knowledge and understanding for performing government contracts, Team BTL has ensured a seamless transition, a high-level of performance and assurance that customer requirements are satisfactorily met.

While access to capital is always a challenge, Mr. Kent has met this obstacle “head-on” and turned it into an opportunity. Four years ago, when the banks scarcely expressed interest in investing in BTL, other options had to be pursued. Mr. Kent sought financial assistance from Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union.  In 2007, the credit union approved a loan under the SBA Patriot Express program in the amount of $100,000 and then another under the SBA Express program for $50,000 followed by an increase to the line of credit close to $400,000.00.

BTL Technologies, Inc. has a strong record of performance and is a very impressive, strategically focused company.  Armed with knowledge, experience, staffing resources and a compelling vision, “BTL is prepared to meet and exceed the needs of customers from day one of engagement”, states Mr. Kent.
