Small Town, Local Tech Company SPAN Enterprises Proves Once Again That Big Ideas Grow in Small Towns

Ranking number 1150, out of this year’s selected companies, SPAN is number 11 in the Charlotte Metro area and is the fastest-growing software company in its home state.

SPAN Enterprises, an industry leader in cloud-based software development, announced today that it has made the 2015 Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing privately-held companies in America. Ranking number 1150, out of this year’s selected companies, SPAN is number 11 in the Charlotte Metro area and is the fastest-growing software company in its home state.

Based in the small town of Rock Hill, South Carolina, has grown in four years from a small office of 6 employees to a building on Main Street with over 30 employees, and a team of over 200 worldwide. While many growing businesses might move to a larger city as they expand, SPAN has chosen to remain in the small town that watched it grow from a bootstrapped startup company to the worldwide, industry leader it is today.

From their Rock Hill headquarters, SPAN has developed, launched, and supported over 14 cloud-based applications that are now used worldwide. Intuitive business management solutions and IRS-authorized e-filing tax software are their specialty, but applications in other industries are slated to launch later this year.

In 2010, co-founders Agie Sundaram & Naga Palanisamy chose to risk everything and bring their vision to life in Rock Hill based on the belief that big ideas grow in small towns, and that in small towns, there are endless possibilities. Later that year, SPAN Enterprises began operations in a 250 square foot office.

CEO Agie Sundaram worked with President Naga Palanisamy to develop their first product, UnitWise, a business management tool designed for Mary Kay sales professionals. Following the success of UnitWise, SPAN developed several more business management products, one of which was, a business management tool for event professionals.

In 2010, SPAN capitalized on Palanisamy’s extensive experience working with IRS e-filing software and launched, an IRS-authorized e-filing program tailored to transportation professionals. Today, the product is an industry leader in the e-filing of several IRS truck tax forms and is accompanied by a suite of similarly successful e-filing products such as Express990 for tax exempt organizations, ExpressTaxFilings for the e-filing of Forms 1099 and W2, and Express Extension, a quick way for individuals, businesses, and nonprofit organizations to e-file for an automatic six month extension on tax returns.

Due to SPAN’s established presence in the trucking industry, they proceeded to develop several other products serving various transportation-related purposes such as ExpressIFTA, a solution that calculates and creates quarterly state-specific IFTA returns with just a few clicks, and Truck Services of North America, a BOC-3 certified premier processing service that assists transportation professionals with attaining and maintaining operating authority.

A few of their latest additions to this industry include TruckLogics, a web-based business management solution for transportation professionals, and, a free, customizable deadline reminder application for transportation professionals.

But what truly sets SPAN Enterprises apart from others in the industry is the passion and commitment of its co-founders. Agie Sundaram is quoted saying, “Success is not determined by a corner office overlooking skyscrapers in a big city.” According to Sundaram, the success of SPAN is measured by the impact it makes on the lives of those using their products, and this can be done from any location.

SPAN will continue to maintain its position as market leader in several industries across the globe, right from its historic Olde Town headquarters above a local coffee shop. They are proud to show small companies in small towns everywhere that location cannot limit one’s dreams, and making this year’s Inc. 5000 is proof.
