Being software guys, we’ve disrupted the space by having a software perspective rather than a telecom perspective, and that has contributed to our success.
Orem, UTAH (PRWEB) November 10, 2017
Today Jive Communications announced its first ranking on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America.
From 2013 to 2016, Jive experienced over 215% revenue growth, more than doubled their workforce, and has been recognized for their outstanding growth by sources such as Forbes, who included Jive on their 2017 “Next Billion Dollar Startups” list.
Jive CEO John Pope said, “Our goals all center around rapid growth, and we’ve definitely seen that. Being software guys, we’ve disrupted the space by having a software perspective rather than a telecom perspective, and that has contributed to our success. We want to give our customers the best experience that can be offered. That, combined with the fresh perspective that our employees bring, has allowed us to better connect with our customers and understand their needs.”
“The Deloitte 2017 North America Technology Fast 500 winners underscore the impact of technological innovation and world class customer service in driving growth, in a fiercely competitive environment,” said Sandra Shirai, leader of Deloitte’s U.S. Technology, Media and Telecommunications (TMT) practice. “These companies are on the cutting edge and are transforming the way we do business. We extend our sincere congratulations to all the winners for achieving remarkable growth while delivering new services and experiences for their customers.”
Heather Gates, national managing director of Deloitte and Touche LLP’s Emerging Growth Company (EGS) practice said, “Deloitte is dedicated to supporting the best and brightest companies of the future in the emerging growth company sector. We are proud to acknowledge the significant accomplishments of this year’s Fast 500 winners.”
