MADISON, Wis., Aug. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Forte Research Systems, Inc., developer of clinical and translational research software systems, announced today that it was ranked No. 1695 on Inc. magazine's fifth annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. This is the second year in a row that Forte Research has made the list, an accomplishment made even sweeter by the company's jump of 867 spots up the list from its placement in 2010.
"We are excited to be included on this list for a second time. Recognition like this validates our commitment to delivering excellent products that provide value to our customers," said Srini Kalluri, President, CEO, and Chief Customer Experience Officer at Forte Research Systems. "This is an example of what can be accomplished when you have a fantastic team, supportive investors, and loyal customers."
Already established as provider of the leading enterprise-class system for clinical and translational research management, OnCore®, Forte Research Systems launched a completely new product line late last year, the cloud-based Allegro® Research on Demand family of CTMS (clinical trials management system) products.
"Our experience with OnCore customers over the last decade in combination with a real need in the investigator site market for a user-friendly, nimble CTMS are definitely contributing to Allegro's rapid uptake," Kalluri said. "I expect that we'll see our name on the list again in 2012."
The Inc. 500|5000 list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America's independent entrepreneurs. Of the 68 companies on the list from Wisconsin, there is one other software company, and seven that share the category of "Health Industry" with Forte Research Systems.
The companies on this year's list report created 350,000 jobs in the past three years, and aggregate revenue among the honorees was up 14 percent from last year. Over this time period, Forte Research Systems created 18 new jobs.
