Vovici is honored to be included on Inc. magazine's list of the 5,000 fastest-growing companies in the country
Dulles, VA (PRWEB) August 27, 2007
Vovici (voh-VEE-see), the leading provider of Enterprise Feedback Management (EFM), announced today that it is ranked No. 4,307 on the first Inc. 5,000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in the country. The Inc. 5,000, an extension of Inc. magazine's annual Inc. 500 list, catches many businesses that are too big to grow at the pace required to make the Inc. 500, as well as a host of smaller firms. Taken as a whole, these companies represent 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 that are underreported in the business media."
Vovici's EFM Continuum is a suite of products for corporate, market research and government markets that contain online survey tools and services to streamline, accelerate and coordinate feedback gathering and reporting. Vovici's customer base is comprised of more than half of the Fortune 500, and includes globally-recognized brands such as BMW, CVS, Ford Motor Company, JCPenney, Levi Strauss & Co., Hotwire.com, MetLife and Whirlpool. Education, research and government industry clients include the U.S. Armed Forces, University of Georgia, Veteran's Administration, American Medical Association, Harvard University and the U.S. House of Representatives.
"Vovici is honored to be included on Inc. magazine's list of the 5,000 fastest-growing companies in the country," said Dean Wiltse, chairman and chief executive officer of Vovici. "The merger of Perseus and WebSurveyor in mid-2006 put us in an excellent position to meet significant growth milestones, while continuing to provide innovative and robust solutions for creating, conducting and analyzing online surveys for government, education and enterprise organizations."
The 2007 Inc. 5,000 reported median revenue of $9.4 million and median three-year growth of 140 percent. Complete information on this year's Inc. 5,000 can be found at online. The list features a profile for each company, almost all of them written as a result of Inc. interviews with management. In addition, the list is searchable according to numerous criteria, including industry, city, state, region, and year founded.
The 2007 Inc. 5000 list measures revenue growth from 2003 through 2006. To qualify, companies had to be U.S.-based and privately held, independent - not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies - as of December 31, 2006, and have had at least $200,000 in revenue in 2003, and $2 million in 2006.
