ANN ARBOR, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DaySmart Software, the leading provider of business management software supporting small business growth, today announced that it was recognized as a 2019 FastTrack Award winner by Ann Arbor SPARK for its remarkable growth over the last three years. The company was among 13 other honorees that were recognized at an awards ceremony on Monday, June 10 at the University of Michigan Golf Course Clubhouse, which concluded A2Tech360, the week-long series of events promoting the Ann Arbor area and its ecosystem of innovation.
To be considered for the FastTrack Award, companies were required to have a revenue of at least $100,000 in 2015, with an annual growth rate of 20 percent for the following three years. UHY LLP is the 2019 Ann Arbor SPARK FastTrack Awards accounting partner and verified each award application. This recognition for DaySmart is reflective of the company’s significant achievements in 2018, marked by a 23 percent year-over-year revenue increase, acquisition of pet services cloud software company PupKeep and inclusion on Inc. Magazine’s list of the 5,000 fastest-growing, privately held companies in America for the eighth consecutive year.
In addition to recognition for its growth trajectory, DaySmart was also recently named a finalist in the 2019 Search Engine Land Awards in the Best Overall SEO Initiative – Small Business category. This year’s competition had nearly 230 submissions from leading digital agencies, in-house marketing teams and SEO experts across the globe. DaySmart was recognized for its initiative to rebrand its corporate and product websites, which led to a significant increase in organic site visits, SEO rankings and, ultimately, sales.
“We’re only six months into our 20th year of business, and it’s already been one of our best years yet,” said Jeff Dickerson, CEO of DaySmart. “I’m most proud of these awards because they reflect the hard work of our talented and dedicated team. It’s because of their commitment to our customers that we’ve continued to grow, and I’m looking forward to what we’ll accomplish together in the second half of this year.”
