ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ --Inc. magazine today ranked Connextions, Inc. No. 3,212 on its fourth annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. This is the fourth consecutive year that Connextions has been honored with inclusion on this list. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America's independent-minded entrepreneurs. "The leaders of the companies on this year's Inc. 5000 have figured out how to grow their businesses during the longest recession since the Great Depression," said Inc. president Bob LaPointe. "The 2010 Inc. 5000 showcases a particularly hardy group of entrepreneurs."
"Connextions is honored to be included in the Inc. 5000 again this year. This year-over-year growth in an extremely difficult economy is a testament to the continued value that we are providing our clients as we acquire, retain and serve their members, customers and providers." said Steven G. Auerbach, President of Connextions. Connextions is a technology-enabled business process outsourcer (BPO) that successfully drives higher sales and close ratios, improved customer retention rates, shortened sales cycles, enhanced operating efficiencies and reduced acquisition costs through its proprietary customer experience, marketing and Exchange platform, bConnected®. Long before the incredible consumer health insurance buying volumes emerging today, Connextions has been delivering high-value skills and resources to insurers through an integration of direct-to-consumer sales expertise, technology and analytics. "Our job is to drive ROI for healthcare organizations," Auerbach said. "We are successful because we understand why, what and how consumers buy; how to move them quickly to a sale; and how to get them into the right product the first time so that Carriers and other healthcare organizations don't experience churn."
"Connextions has already transitioned its technology and service offerings to meet the needs of the emerging consumer health insurance Exchange marketplace and is working with several private entities to manage their Exchanges," said Rob Panepinto, Connextions Exchange Managing Director. "bConnected is the engine that helps our highly trained agents close new business, drive retention, and win back lost accounts with outreach campaigns and workflows." This year's Inc. 5000 employ a record 1.4 million people, up from one million on last year's list.
