TROY, Mich., Aug. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A Michigan based software firm led by MIT graduates and industry experts has recently been ranked No. 229 on Inc. 500 Magazine's list of fastest growing companies in the United States for the year 2012 and has become one of the worldwide leaders in supply chain solutions.

SilkRoute Global, whose customers include some of the largest manufacturers, distributors and retailers in the world, attributes its growth to its talent pool and SkyLight software as a service (SaaS) platform. SkyLight is a complete SaaS solution capable of managing all parts of the wholesale and retail supply chain. From new product launch to demand forecasting and replenishment to returns and markdown management, the SkyLight product suite delivers sophisticated tools that help drive bottom-line results.

"Our core philosophy to stay ahead of the technology curve and invest heavily into our software solution to solve complex problems has benefited our customers tremendously," said CTO of SilkRoute Adam Moy referring to SkyLight. "We build long lasting relationships with our customers, and we don't do business unless everyone truly benefits, hence one of our core values 1+1=11 or more."

SilkRoute Global brought on 6 new software developers during a recent job fair, and plans on hiring 10 additional software professionals over the next eighteen months to support its growth initiatives. The organization is constantly in search of new talent that fits within its agile software development culture.

"Now more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500|5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward," says Inc. magazine Editor Jane Berentson. "Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is."

SilkRoute Global has grown 1,588% in the last three years placing it as the 2nd fastest growing firm in Detroit, and ranking it 19th overall in the software industry nationwide.
