SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Inkling, the company that helps the Fortune 1000 more effectively communicate with employees and customers, today announced its inclusion in the San Francisco Business Times' list of the Fastest Growing Private Companies in the Bay Area, called the Fast 100. Inkling is used by teams to create beautiful, interactive documents for both internal use, like employee development and reference, and external use, like white papers and brochures.
Each year, the San Francisco Business Times, in conjunction with PriceWaterhouseCoopers, conducts research to identify the 100 most rapidly growing businesses in the Bay Area. Rankings are based on each organization's revenues over their three most recent fiscal years. Between 2012 and 2014, Inkling's revenue increased 234 percent, placing it #29 on this list of fastest growing businesses. Past honorees on the Fast 100 list have included GoPro, Marketo Inc., Salesforce.com, and Zendesk.
The recognition comes on the heels of a number of other media accolades, including Inkling's second consecutive year on Inc. Magazine's Inc 500 list of the Fastest Growing Private Companies in America. Inkling has also been recognized by Forbes as one of the best cloud software businesses to work for based on online employee reviews on glassdoor.com.
"Inkling's rapid growth, adding 70 new enterprise clients in just the last year, is the result of the passion and hard work of our team, almost all of whom work here in downtown San Francisco," said founder and CEO, Matt MacInnis. "We work with global brands, including many that are based here in the Bay Area, as they move toward more modern ways of engaging their employees and customers."
Beyond Inkling's growing revenue and client base, the company is also expanding its staff and office space in San Francisco. Since the end of 2014, Inkling has nearly doubled its staff, and has aggressive hiring plans for 2016, as well. To accommodate its growing team, Inkling has opened a second San Francisco location as well as a Seattle office, in addition to its existing offices in New York.
"We are committed to preserving our unique culture in this competitive environment, which has made it that much more challenging to hire quickly in this incredibly tight labor market," said MacInnis. "San Francisco is expensive, but there's no better place on earth to drive technology innovation and growth."
Inkling enables ordinary people to create extraordinary things to power more effective and delightful business communication. We believe that the delight and engagement we experience in our consumer lives belongs at work, so we build software that lets teams create beautiful, interactive documents for customer and employee learning, marketing communications, and reference.
