SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ONTRAPORT, an all-in-one small business management platform that integrates all the software tools an entrepreneur needs to start, systemize and scale his or her business, has been listed as No. 71 on Forbes' annual ranking of America's Most Promising Companies, a list of one hundred privately held, high-growth companies with bright futures.
This is the second year running that ONTRAPORT has made the Forbes' list—ranking No. 96 in 2013. The third annual list recognizes the top 100 privately held, high-growth companies that possess compelling business models, strong management teams, notable customers, strategic partners and precious investment capital. The full list of companies is available online at www.forbes.com.
"It's an honor to be recognized for the second year by Forbes and in the company of such impressive businesses," said Landon Ray, CEO for ONTRAPORT. "This last year has been a tremendous year for ONTRAPORT. We've seen unprecedented growth and our team's commitment to innovation and outstanding customer service has helped us reach our goals."
ONTRAPORT's business automation platform for entrepreneurs has propelled the company's growth 761% over the last three years with a customer list of 5000, and a 100% increase in staff last year alone. ONTRAPORT addresses the challenges and needs of entrepreneurs by replacing the tangled mess of disparate software tools that frustrate most small businesses with a complete, integrated platform that captures their most critical business, sales and marketing automation needs.
For the Most Promising list, Forbes reviewed hundreds of applications from businesses across the country over the course of four months. The final assessment is based on growth (both in sales and hiring), quality of management team and investors, margins, market size and key partnerships. After verifying sales numbers, speaking with each company and debating their merits and blemishes, Forbes produces a final ranking.
