WinTech LLC, the technology company behind the award-winning ALICE Receptionist virtual receptionist software, is planning to expand its Las Vegas-based headquarters which houses the company’s technology development, world-wide sales and support departments.

These resources, along with our love of community, were important components to our decision to remain in Southern Nevada as we execute our next phase of growth.”
