Gilbert, AZ (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
Socious, a leading provider of peer-to-peer online community platforms to businesses, associations, and user groups announced the opening of its expanded headquarters in Gilbert, Arizona today. Socious, which had only expanded into its former space 36 month ago, has doubled its team since then.
Socious is at the center of a movement by businesses and membership organizations to create stronger relationships and more efficiently manage ideas from their markets by leveraging their communities of customers or members. Organizations ranging from Fortune 200 companies to international associations use Socious’ online community platform to help people collaborate on solutions, manage live events and conferences, and crowdsource product ideas.
“Socious has experienced accelerated growth over the past few years as companies and associations make building lasting communities a central part of their business strategies,” said Paul Schneider, co-founder and senior vice president of Socious. “The demand for online community software has caused us to hire and expand our operation many months ahead of when we had originally planned.”
Along with marketing automation software maker, InfusionSoft, Socious is a one of the fastest growing software companies headquartered in the Phoenix area. Socious has been based in Gilbert, Arizona, in the Phoenix’s east valley, for the past 9 years.
"We love Gilbert since it is a fast-growing city where the talent pool is getting deeper every month. We can have an attractive quality of life for our families and grow the business with exceptional people from all over the valley,” continued Schneider.
The market for social software does not show any signs of slowing down with industry research firms, such as MarketsandMarkets, predicting that the social CRM market will grow from $1.91 billion in 2013 to $9.08 billion in 2018.
While this expansion is designed to accommodate Socious’s growth projections for several years, Socious’s market share continues to grow in the US and internationally. As Socious hires in the Gilbert area, the company’s leadership will continue to monitor its office needs and take additional space accordingly.
The Socious mailing address will remain at 2500 South Power Rd, Suite 118, Mesa, AZ, 85209.
Founded in 2002, Socious (socious.com) offers the industry’s most complete online community software to large and mid-sized businesses, user groups, and associations.
