Acceller, America’s leader in providing digital lifestyle services to the mass market, today announced it has joined the prestigious ranks of the Inc. 500 fastest growing private companies in America. The Inc. 500 identifies companies who are changing the face of American business and honors their ingenuity and ambition. Acceller ranked 54th on the 2007 Inc. 500, with a three-year growth of 2,225.5%.

"We are proud of this significant achievement and the record growth Acceller has experienced over the past several years. Acceller's team exemplifies efficiency and effectiveness. Earning a ranking on the Inc. 500 list demonstrates that a company funded by its profits can be both innovative and effective," said Steven McKean, Chairman and CEO, Acceller.

“If you want to find out which companies are going to change the world, look at the Inc. 500,” said Inc. Editor Jane Berentson. “These are the most innovative, dynamic, fast-growth companies in the nation, the ones coming up with solutions to some of our most intractable ills, creating systems that let us conduct business faster and easier, and manufacturing products we soon discover we can’t live without. The Inc. 500 list is Inc. magazine’s tribute to American business ingenuity and ambition.”

Acceller envisioned, developed and deployed an innovative comparison-shopping platform for digital lifestyle services because the choices are numerous and the decision making process is complicated. The proliferation and rapid obsolescence of new offerings outstrips the mass market’s ability to understand their choices as well as the set-up and usage intricacies of each service. Acceller presents practical content, contextually based on what the user is doing on the screen or what offers have been selected, to enable consumers to make informed buying decisions and get the most from their digital lifestyle products. Additionally, Acceller’s comparison-shopping platform drives incremental revenue for its reseller partners, and today supports multiple channels, including e-commerce sites, storefronts, and call centers, as well as device icons for computer and consumer electronics manufacturers. Acceller’s network of service providers means 95% of U.S. households can find services for their home.

"Consumers today are faced with a growing number of options for Internet, phone, and cable TV, as well as new things like high-definition television and bundled services," said Bruce Leichtman, president and principal analyst, Leichtman Research Group, Inc. "For this reason, consumers need easy to understand comparison-shopping services, like those provided by Acceller, that greatly simplify the process of researching and acquiring these important communications and entertainment services."

The 2007 Inc. 500, as revealed in the September issue of Inc. magazine (on newsstands August 28 – October 2), reported aggregate revenue of $16 billion and median three-year growth of 939 percent. Most important, the 2007 Inc. 500 companies were engines of job growth, having created more than 64,064 jobs since those companies were founded.
