AvidXchange Ranks 186th Top Software Company on the 2012 Inc. 500|5000 AvidXchange Ranks in the Top 50% of Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America on the Inc. 500|5000
CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Inc. magazine recognizes AvidXchange as one of the fastest growing private companies in America by ranking AvidXchange in the Top 50% on the Inc. 500|5000. AvidXchange experienced record revenue growth in 2011, with more than a 55% increase in revenue. Their Inc. 500|5000 profile highlights the company's 97% growth in revenue over the last three years. This monumental growth bolstered their ranking for Top Software Companies on the Inc. 500|5000 from last year's ranking of 244 to this year's ranking of 186. The company's record growth can be attributed to their combination of new sales and increased recurring revenue from their existing customers, which they retain at an impressive rate of 98%.
"The growth we have seen across our business, in both customers and transactions, has been really exciting for us! We are rapidly expanding our customer base, and are on track to exceed 400 total enterprise customers in 2013. We are also on the cusp of breaking the two billion dollar threshold in monthly transactions processed," commented Michael Praeger, CEO and Co-Founder of AvidXchange. "To be recognized by Inc. magazine as the 186th fastest growing software company is a real testament to the work of our team at AvidXchange to provide the world-class support that our clients are accustomed to receiving while we continue to grow at an increasingly rapid pace," added Praeger.
The 2012 Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2008 to 2011. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2008. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2011. The minimum revenue required for 2008 is $100,000; the minimum for 2011 is $2 million. AvidXchange's revenue growth and focus on innovation are integral pieces to their notable movement, nearly 1000 places, from last year's ranking of 3527 to this year's ranking of 2489 on the Inc. 500|5000.
"Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500|5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is," says Inc. Editor, Eric Schurenberg.
What makes AvidXchange truly unique as a company, and propels their growth, is their ability to maintain a solid foundation of employees and clients. While employees are the fabric of AvidXchange; they let the voice of their customer speak louder than any other voice in the company. The majority of their solution upgrades, expansions, and additions are a direct result of client requests and discussions. Born out of a client request, AvidXchange took their success with AvidUtility and broadened the scope of their bill payment service. They applied their best practices from AvidUtility to a monthly service that handles 100% of payments, which is now known as AvidPay. They rolled out this service in January, and the number of users increases daily. AvidPay eliminates clients' need for paper checks, thereby eliminating the other cost associations of postage, check stock, and manual processing.
