New York City & Walnut Creek, CA – September 26, 2018 – Foothold Technology, the #1 cloud-based behavioral health and human services EHR software vendor in New York and New Jersey, announced today that it is joining Exym®, LLC as part of Alpine SG, LLC (“ASG”), a group of market-leading vertical SaaS companies. Exym is a leading behavioral health EHR company based in California. Foothold founders Marlowe Greenberg and Nick Scharlatt will remain active in the business as CEO and Head of Sales respectively. “ASG and Exym were a clear partner choice for us,” said Greenberg. “We aligned very early in the process with them around our customer-focused approach to business. Our shared priority is to deliver superior software and support to our customers to enable them to best serve their clients for whom quality care is essential.”

Over the past 18 years since its inception in 2000, Foothold Technology has grown from a custom database solution for a single New York agency to a comprehensive, cloud-based platform with robust functionality for human services agencies nationwide. Foothold’s software platform, AWARDS®, delivers superior functionality for mental health, alcohol and substance abuse, intellectual and developmental disabilities, homelessness and housing placement, and employment and training agencies. AWARDS also serves a variety of other therapeutic services organizations who provide care to individuals, families, children, adults, seniors and veterans.

Together, Foothold and Exym proudly deliver mission-critical EHR software to more than 1,100 agencies and nearly 60,000 users in 30 states and US territories. This investment by ASG represents the first step in its vision to bring EHR software vendors together to better serve behavioral health and human services populations across the country. “We believe that behavioral health providers are underserved by today’s software and service options. It is our mission to change that,” said Dan Saper, Group CEO at ASG.

The partnership with ASG allows Foothold and Exym to make strategic investments in engineering and expand their business intelligence and data analytics functionality to customers in the near future. “Our shared vision is to become the nation’s premier software for behavioral health and human services agencies.
