NeonCRM by Z2 Systems was recognized as the country’s fastest-growing software company serving the nonprofit market

Z2 Systems, Inc., the creators of nonprofit management software NeonCRM, ranked No. 1810 on Inc. magazine’s 36th annual Inc. 5000 list. The coveted list honors America’s 5000 fastest-growing private companies and represents the most comprehensive look at the nation’s independent entrepreneurs.

The 2017 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive in history, comprising an aggregate revenue of $206 billion and generating 619,500 jobs over the past three years. Z2 Systems (listed as NeonCRM) is ranked for the third year in a row -- an achievement only reached by one in five companies -- and has consistently risen in the list with continued growth each year.

The Inc. 5000 rankings are determined by percentage revenue and staff growth over the past three years. Z2 Systems rose in rank from last year, with a 213 percent revenue growth rate. According to Inc., this growth rate makes Z2 Systems the 11th fastest growing private software company in Chicago, and one of the top 150 in the United States.

Z2 Systems is a software company that develops NeonCRM, a cloud-based database program that specializes in fundraising and membership management for nonprofit organizations. On this year’s list, Z2 Systems is the fastest growing software company that exclusively serves the nonprofit market.

“We could not be happier with the path our company is on as we continue to focus on helping nonprofit organizations succeed. We knew when we started the company in 2004 that if the nonprofits we worked with were successful, our company would be as well,” says CEO and Co-Founder Jeff Gordy. “Z2 Systems was started with the help of our friends and family, and by keeping that ownership we have been able to really focus on what is truly important to us: Making Good Happen.”

Z2 Systems works to create technology solutions for a wide variety of nonprofit organizations, including organizations such as the United Children’s Healthcare Foundation, James Beard Foundation, Archdiocese of Atlanta, Grassroots Institute for Fundraising Training, Audubon societies, Big Brothers Big Sisters chapters, and Boys & Girls Clubs. The company works with nearly 3,000 organizations and will soon release Neon Raise, a new online fundraising platform.

This year’s Inc. 5000 listing continues a year of awards for Z2 Systems. Their core product NeonCRM has been celebrated by nonprofit technology reviews and reports released this year, including a “Best Value” ranking in Idealware & NTEN’s report on the industry’s top donor management systems. Software Advice, Firefly Partners, ThirdSpace Studio, and other organizations have also noted NeonCRM as a top nonprofit software provider this year.
