September 4, 2007
NEW YORK, September 4, 2007 – Inc. today selected Shoptech Software as one of the fastest growing 5,000 companies in the United States. The Inc. 5,000, an extension of Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 500 list, represents the backbone of the U.S. economy.
“The Inc. 5,000 provides the most comprehensive look ever at the most important part of the economy – the entrepreneurial part,” said Inc. 5,000 Project Manager Jim Melloan. “The expansion of the list has allowed us to tell the stories of larger companies, older companies, and a wealth of companies in industries like Manufacturing and Construction that are underreported in the business media.
Loyalty and Dedication
“We are very honored to receive such a prestigious award”, said Phillip M. Hutchinson, President and CEO of Shoptech Software. “The growth that we’ve experienced over the past 4 years is a direct result of our loyal customer base along with the hard work and dedication of our employees. The recipe for our success is pretty simple; Deliver a quality product coupled with superior customer service. It’s no different than what our customers are doing on a daily basis.”
The 2007 Inc. 5000 list measures revenue growth from 2003 through 2006. To qualify, companies had to be U.S.-based and independent – not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies – as of December 31, 2006. Shoptech had to submit audited financials, which were independently verified. “The most impressive aspect of Shoptech’s growth is that it was organic”, said Shoptech CFO Robert Lewis. “A lot of companies grow through acquisition, but our growth was through adding new customers, maintaining current customers and providing new services”.
