While the 2020 pandemic has presented many challenges for our customers and communities, it has certainly accelerated many of the underlying trends that were already unfolding in the business communications industry, including the rise of mobile and remote workers, the importance of video and teams
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (PRWEB) August 12, 2020
Inc. magazine today revealed that BCM Altus is No. 1267 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“Our team is honored to be recognized by Inc. magazine as an emerging leader in our industry,” says Brian Jones, founder and CEO of Altus. “While the 2020 pandemic has presented many challenges for our customers and communities, it has certainly accelerated many of the underlying trends that were already unfolding in the business communications industry, including the rise of mobile and remote workers, the importance of video and team collaboration, and the shift away from legacy on-premise PBX systems to cloud-based applications. We have seen record demand for our suite of Webex calling and collaboration services and I don’t expect the market to turn back to the old ways of doing business.”
Not only have the companies on the 2020 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists as well. The 2020 Inc. 5000 achieved an incredible three-year average growth of over 500 percent, and a median rate of 165 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $209 billion in 2019, accounting for over 1 million jobs over the past three years.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are also being featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 12.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held virtually from October 23 to 27, 2020. As always, speakers will include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
