"iCIMS is honored to be included on this year's Inc. 500," said Colin Day, president and CEO of iCIMS. "We credit this award to our focus on customer support, which distinguishes us from the competition and has allowed us to not only sign new clients, but also retain existing customers." iCIMS has maintained a 97 percent customer retention rate over the past three years and has received near-perfect marks on customer satisfaction surveys during the same time. Day continued, "We have always remained committed to cultivating long-term relationships with our customers and consider our clients our best engineers."

This year's list recognized Human Resources as one of the top business categories for growth in 2006. With competition for qualified talent at an all-time high, corporations are turning to HR technology to help them win the War for Talent.
