Health Care Software Company Opens Office in Cobb
PointClear Solutions is looking to fill 10 jobs at its new office located north of Smyrna at 1775 The Exchange.
Cobb County is gaining at least 10 jobs from the expansion of PointClear Solutions.
The 6-year-old Huntsville, AL-based company develops software for customers in health care, including hospitals, doctors, government agencies and other information technology companies.
It is opening an office at 1775 The Exchange, which is just east of Marietta, north of Smyrna, west of Interstate 75 and south of Terrell Mill Road.
“Our business has grown substantially here over the past 18 months, and we continue to sign new business,” PointClear CEO David Karabinos said in a news release from the Cobb Chamber of Commerce. “We now have a critical mass of clients and employees here.”
PointClear will have 10 employees in Cobb within two months and plans to grow to as many as 75 people within three years, the Chamber said.
The jobs will pay an average of $60,000, the Atlanta Business Chronicle reported.
"The addition of PointClear in Cobb County is incredible for our community and for all of metro Atlanta," said Brooks Mathis, the Cobb Chamber’s vice president of economic development. “IT and health-care-related jobs create high wages and are the types of employment opportunities that we want to create for our citizens."
PointClear fits two of the four industries the Chamber is targeting under its new Competitive EDGE initiative, which has drawn criticism over funding: health care services and information technology and software.
Competitive EDGE aims to draw new businesses and help existing companies expand. The Chamber reported 26 major relocations and expansions, 3,093 new jobs, and $248 million in new investments in 2011.
“The many assets of Cobb County create an environment for companies such as PointClear to thrive and be successful," Mathis said.
PointClear has 10 employees now in Sandy Springs and serves such Atlanta-area customers as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, McKesson, Greenway Medical Technologies, Sharecare, and SeeMyRadiology.
“We selected Atlanta as our next office because it has an extensive health care IT ecosystem, has experienced software development and usability professionals in the market, and has a large concentration of prospective clients and partners to work with,” Karabinos said. “The health care IT and user experience talent pool here is one of the deepest in the country.”
