Inc. magazine today ranked CallTrackingMetrics No. 228 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, 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. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
CallTrackingMetrics is also featured in the September issue of Inc., which unveiled the top 500 companies (on newsstands August 23). In the article, husband and wife founders Laure and Todd Fisher discuss creating a thriving software company from their basement and how their past experiences and complementary personalities have helped them to successfully scale and innovate.
“Fifteen to twenty years ago, people assumed phone calls would diminish in importance- businesses focused so much on online activity that they forgot their most qualified leads are still coming in by phone”, states Todd, adding “We thought, there has to be an easy way to fix this.
Laure added: “It’s an honor to be among such a prestigious group of companies. To break the top 500 in our first year on the list is really exciting and is a testament to our hard working team.”
With a three-year sales growth of 1,741.9%, CallTrackingMetrics exceeds the company average on this year’s list, which comes in at a mind-boggling 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period.

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
