SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Samsara, a leader in Industrial IoT, today announced it ranked #5 in the Bay Area and #24 in North America on Deloitte's Technology Fast 500™. This respected list ranks the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, and energy tech companies in North America and selects winners based on percentage fiscal year revenue growth from 2016 to 2019. According to Deloitte, during this three year period, Samsara's revenue grew 9,031%.
Dominic Phillips, chief financial officer at Samsara, credits the company's revenue growth to its speed of product innovation and focus on the customer.
"Samsara's mission is to increase the efficiency, safety and sustainability of the operations that power our economy. And this year, that mission has never been more important," said Phillips. "While the world has been sheltering at home, trucking companies, water utilities and city services have been delivering food and keeping our streets clean and our water flowing. To support our customers' critical work, we put our heads down this year and delivered: investing in product research and development, expanding our platform, and delivering world-class onboarding and support."
This past year, Samsara has welcomed thousands of new customers, including the City of Sacramento, Clean Harbors, and ADM to a growing list that includes Swire Coca-Cola, Bragg Construction, and ArcBest. The company also built new partnerships with Volvo, Navistar, and Ford to integrate their data into the Samsara platform, and released more than 150+ new product features, including new AI Dash Cam features, Electric Vehicle tools, and an Admin App.
Looking ahead to 2021, Samsara will continue to invest significantly in product research and development as the company expands its platform, partnerships, and customer experience.
"In just five years we have welcomed more than 15,000 customers to the Samsara platform and are well on our way to becoming the IoT leader for the industrial world," Phillips said.
