CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BigTime Software, a leading provider of cloud-based software for professional services firms, has been recognized on Inc. 5000’s annual list of America’s fastest growing private companies.
The Inc. 5000 ranking represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“I’ve admired the Inc. list since I was a kid, so of course I’m honored to see BigTime added to its ranks. But, it’s even more exciting to see dozens of our customers make the list!” said Brian Saunders, founder and CEO of BigTime Software. “We cheer every time we see that.”
This ranking reflects the rapid growth that BigTime has seen over the past several years, culminating in record-setting revenues in 2018. This was driven by an expanding client base, new product development and offerings, and growing demand as more small and mid-sized businesses embrace Cloud-based technology.
This growth trajectory has accelerated into 2019. In May, the Company announced the closing of a $14 million equity investment led by Wavecrest Growth Partners. Part of this growth initiative includes the addition of approximately 75 new hires to at its Chicago headquarters, including at the senior management level, in the coming months.
Recently, the Company was recognized with a Gold Stevie Award in the Cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Solution category and a Bronze Stevie Award in the Small Computer Software Company of the Year in the 17th Annual American Business Awards. BigTime was also named on G2’s Top 100 Software Companies list for the second consecutive year.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
