HOUSTON, Oct. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — alliantgroup CEO Dhaval Jadav was recently featured in the Software & Information Industry Association’s (SIIA) TechChats segment. SIIA’s TechChats provides a look at some of the most successful executives affiliated with the organization and in the software and tech industry. During his interview with Rhianna Collier, Vice President of the Software Division at SIIA, Jadav discussed a number of topics ranging from the company’s core mission to the firm’s commitment to an innovative office culture and an unmatched client experience.

According to Jadav, alliantgroup’s mission came to fruition years before the company’s founding while he was advising software and tech clients at Deloitte and Touche on tax credit and incentive opportunities. Serving in this capacity, Jadav saw first-hand how Fortune 1000 companies were taking advantage of the various credit and incentive programs that were designed to ensure American companies grow, innovate and remain competitive against foreign competition. More importantly, Jadav noticed how small and middle market businesses, traditionally the most innovative companies around, were overlooking these exact same opportunities and the detrimental effect this oversight would have on the American economy in the long-term.

“When you look at small and medium-sized businesses…when you look at who employs the most employees in the United States, and where does innovation really come from, it happens at this level,” said Jadav.

Sensing a lack of awareness within the middle markets, Jadav and alliantgroup COO Shane Frank founded alliantgroup in 2002 with the core purpose of strengthening U.S. businesses by helping all companies—not just the Fortune 1000—claim the credits, incentives and deductions they are entitled to under the U.S. tax code. To date, alliantgroup has helped over 12,000 businesses claim more than $6 billion in government-sponsored tax incentives. Jadav attributes the success of the firm to its commitment to a dynamic and collaborative workplace, its hiring of tax and technical industry professionals to identify all incentive opportunities, and to what he refers to as the “Raving Fan Mission” —a concept used to describe alliantgroup’s total devotion to customer service and the client experience.

“Each and every professional we hire at alliantgroup believes in the Raving Fan Mission,” said Jadav. “What is the Raving Fan Mission? Experience. We want every single client to have the most amazing experience with us. And we want to provide them with the best in class technical expertise.”

In addition to alliantgroup’s core purpose and services, Jadav elaborated on the company’s various charitable initiatives ranging from the promotion of STEM education in universities and public schools to the firm’s recent Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. According to Jadav, STEM lies at the heart of everything the firm does and is vital to improving the quality of life of individuals and our communities. STEM jobs are among the highest paying and represent the new direction of the American economy as the influence of technology grows within almost every major industry. From introducing companies to credits that reward businesses for creating high-paying STEM jobs to initiatives that will advance STEM education, Jadav reaffirmed alliantgroup’s commitment to promoting STEM and in keeping the jobs of the future on U.S. shores.

alliantgroup’s mission is one of education and awareness. The firm exists to help industry organizations, U.S. businesses and their CPA advisors identify valuable federal and state tax incentives. alliantgroup is headquartered in Houston and has offices across the country, including in New York, Boston, Chicago, Indianapolis, Orlando, Sacramento, Irvine and Washington, D.C.
