Posted by Ryan Ropero on May 26, 2015 1:00:00 PM

Barely two years old, Palm Coast-based Coastal Cloud has been recognized as a Gold Level Cloud Alliance Partner, making the company the only partner based in the southeastern U.S. to achieve that level. 

Coastal Cloud ranks first in customer satisfaction among all partners in the southeast and second in the number of certifications earned by its consultants.’s Gold Level Partner is awarded to companies who surpass key metrics around scale (the number of certified consultants on staff), customer satisfaction and revenue. 

“We believe the Software as a Service (SaaS) technology revolution, epitomized by, has disrupted the IT consulting model,” says Tim Hale, Coastal Cloud Managing Partner and co-founder.  “SaaS implementations are not well suited for offshoring.  Time zone, communications, staff turnover and other issues associated with offshore IT significantly undermine the nimbleness which is the hallmark of SaaS implementations.  We are proving that a nimble, high-touch, deeply skilled US team at a reasonable price point can provide more value than offshore providers and expensive consultants in the large metro areas,” Hale added.

One hundred percent of Coastal Cloud’s technical team members are Salesforce certified.  “Our cloud and SaaS consultants are not just technology experts, they are also business experts,” says Sara Hale, who is also a Coastal Cloud Managing Partner and co-founder.  “We have deep cloud expertise. We are 100% certified and we are 100% on-shore,” she added.

Coastal Cloud is built on a next generation consultancy and delivery model that maximizes the value available from SaaS solutions.   Embracing the concept of rural-sourcing, the company’s ‘SaaS Solution Center’ is based in a lower cost area of Northeast Florida that provides its employees with an exceptional quality of life and an affordable cost of living.  Coastal Cloud team members live at the beach and work in the cloud, both literally and virtually. 

In only two years, Coastal Cloud has grown to 75 employees and well over 100 private and public sector clients from healthcare, telecommunications, high tech, real estate, economic and workforce development and non-profits. 

Coastal Cloud is owned by Tim and Sara Hale. The company is located at 1 Hammock Beach Pkwy in Palm Coast, FL and are open by appointment in person, or Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm via phone. They can be reached at 800-237-9574, or online at or
