Vocus, a leading provider of cloud marketing software, recently ranked as one of the World’s Largest Software Companies by Software Magazine. The company has classified as one the world’s largest software companies for the 13th straight year, proving that the number thirteen may not be unlucky after all.
“Vocus is thrilled to be named as one of the largest software companies in the world for the 13th consecutive year,” said Vocus Chief Marketing Officer Jason Jue. “Our consistent presence on this list is a testament to our product quality, employee work ethic, and customer loyalty.”
“The 2012 Software 500 results show that revenue growth in the software and services industry was again healthy, with total Software 500 revenue of $643.6 billion worldwide for 2011, representing approximately 17 percent growth from the previous year’s list,” says John P. Desmond, editor, Software Magazine.
“The Vocus Marketing Suite, which weaves social media, publicity, search and email marketing to drive business results, has been central to our recent growth,” said Jue. “As Vocus continues to develop innovative marketing software, we hope to be a part of this list for years to come.”
The ranking was released in Software Magazine’s Fall issue, as a part of both the print and digital publications. The online version will be posted on http://www.softwaremag.com and will be searchable by category.
The Software 500 is a revenue-based ranking of the world’s largest software and services suppliers, targeting medium to large enterprises, their IT professionals, software developers, and business managers involved in software and services purchasing.
The ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue for 2011. This includes revenue from software licenses, maintenance and support, training, and software-related services and consulting. Suppliers are not ranked on total corporate revenue, since many have other lines of business, such as hardware.
