Irving, TX (PRWEB) August 27, 2008
Aquire, the leader in visual workforce planning and management solutions, today announced it has earned a place on Inc. magazine's annual ranking of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the country. The 2008 Inc. 5000 list, which measures revenue growth from 2004 through 2007, recognizes Aquire's impressive three-year sales growth of 83.6 percent. Aquire was also ranked on the 2007 Inc. 5000.
The list is the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy - America's independent-minded entrepreneurs. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy. To qualify, companies must be U.S.-based and privately held, for profit, independent - not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies - as of December 31, 2007, and have had at least $200,000 in revenue in 2004, and $2 million in 2007.
"Our second annual Inc. 5000 continues the most ambitious project in business journalism," said Inc. 5000 Project Manager Jim Melloan. "The Inc. 5000 gives an unrivalled portrait of young, underreported companies across all industries doing fascinating things with cutting-edge business models, as well as older companies that are still showing impressive growth."
