Charlotte, N.C. (PRWEB) December 19, 2016
SignUpGenius, the leading online sign up service for event and volunteer management, was recently awarded a Silver Davey Award for Website Consumer Products/Services. The popular tech site also garnered the 11th spot on the Charlotte Business Journal’s list of fastest-growing private companies in the Charlotte metro area, up one spot from the company’s standing last year.
“It’s especially meaningful to be recognized for our work as a small, fast-growing company,” CEO Dan Rutledge said. “We are constantly encouraged to see how our online sign up tool helps 7-12 million users change the world every month.”
SignUpGenius has received several honors this year including recognition as Small Tech Company of the Year at the 2016 NC Tech Awards in November and the highest honor possible from the WebAwards for Outstanding Computer Software Website. The Charlotte Business Journal also recognized SignUpGenius as the 9th Best Place to Work in Charlotte on the list of midsized companies.
Davey Awards honor the finest creative work from the best small agencies, firms, and companies worldwide. The awards are judged and overseen by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA), a 700+ member organization of leading professionals from various disciplines of the visual arts. Current membership represents a "Who's Who" of acclaimed media, advertising and marketing firms including: Condé Nast, Disney, GE, Microsoft, Monster.com, MTV, Publicis, Sesame Workshops, Yahoo! and many others.
Since moving to larger corporate headquarters in Charlotte last year, SignUpGenius has doubled its staff to 27 employees and increased its revenue by 89 percent in 2015 compared to the year before.
SignUpGenius simplifies the process of coordinating events and people by providing online sign ups for nonprofits, schools, sports, churches, families, colleges, businesses and organizations. By enabling up to 12 million unique visitors per month to sign up for tasks online, SignUpGenius has done away with the need for paper sign ups, "reply-all" emails and phone trees.
