"Each addition and development for our business is carefully calculated with our customers in mind." - Matt Massick, IDS CEO
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 19, 2015
IDS, a leading data center technology integrator and cloud services provider, is excited to announce their inclusion in the 34th annual Inc. 5000 list, honoring the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This year IDS ranked No. 167 in the Chicago market and No. 3912 overall, a significant improvement over their last ranking. This marks the fifth time IDS has been recognized on the Inc. 5000 list.
IDS credits their impressive growth to strategic initiatives and a passion for putting customers first. Matt Massick, IDS CEO, explains that this year has been about tightening processes, expanding solutions and revolutionizing the customer experience. He said, “Our Inc. 5000 placement can be attributed to a significantly expanded solutions portfolio which includes a distinguished IT consulting practice, IDS Cloud offerings, and most recently, the IDS Asset Management Portal and the IDS Integration Center.” He added, “Each addition and development for our business is carefully calculated with our customers in mind. The positive response to our improvements has already caused a highly accelerated growth rate in 2015, and we can’t wait to see where the next few years take us.”
Inc. 5000 recognizes the incredible effort it takes to propel a company into such a high state of growth. "The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident."
IDS is honored to be included in Inc. 5000 for the fifth time, where their dedication and commitment has placed them at No. 507 in the competitive IT Services category for 2014.
