Herndon, VA (PRWEB) September 10, 2012
Parature, a global leader in cloud-based customer service software, announced today that it has been ranked on Inc. Magazine’s sixth annual 500|5000 list, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The company ranked number 21 in Business Products and Services in the Virginia market and number 3,358 overall (see Parature’s complete Inc. profile here). This ranking follows Parature’s news that it has gone mobile, providing its nearly 50 million end users web-based mobile access to the Parature Service Desk via all major mobile and tablet browsers such as Safari, Windows7 and Android. With the inclusion of mobile devices, Parature’s customer service leads the industry in allowing companies to provide a positive service experience regardless of the channel used, from social networks to iPhones to a self-serve knowledgebase.
“We are proud to be recognized on the Inc. 5000 list for the sixth year running,” says Parature CEO, Ching-Ho Fung. “Parature continues to meet the needs of companies looking for a cloud-based, multi-channel customer service solution, and we attribute our growth to the increasing role of customer support software on social platforms, as well as the increased focus on using technology to improve service and support in the public sector.”
In addition to achieving consistent revenue growth in a tough economy, Parature continues to grow internally, as well. In November 2011, the company moved into new offices in Herndon, Virginia, and began aggressively hiring based on the company’s success in both the private and public sectors. As part of the company’s ongoing commitment to improve and evolve its customer service offering, Parature provides a highly collaborative office environment to its employees, allowing them to form tight-knit teams with one common goal: to make Parature and its products a success for its thousands of customers.
"Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500|5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is,” says Inc. Editor Eric Schurenberg.
