COLUMBIA, S.C., Aug. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Electric Guard Dog, the #1 Theft Deterrent Service™, announced they are making their fourth appearance on the Inc. 5000 List of America's Fastest Growing Private Companies. The award comes on the heels of a slew of accolades for the electric security fence company including rankings on the SDM 100, SD&I's Fast 50 of Security Integrators, and Best Places to Work in South Carolina.
The Inc. 5000 ranks companies by overall revenue growth over a three-year period. With a 47% growth rate over that time, it was interesting to note that over 30% of Electric Guard Dog's new customers in 2015 have been in conversations with the company for more than a year. National Sales Manager James Fischer commented, "Business to business sales traditionally have longer sales cycles, so the fact we're able to compete with the growth rates of business to consumer based companies demonstrates we provide a great product and service in the commercial security sector."
CEO Jack DeMao added another factor, "Retention rates. Customer retention rates for our service have been at 96% for a full decade. Our service is a vital security measure for commercial companies that experience high volume theft. With law enforcement, prosecution, and incarceration resources overwhelmed, our customers have a strong need to protect themselves. Electric Guard Dog is the only security measure that can consistently deter theft without law enforcement: 95% of our customers experience no external theft after installation. Couple that with the dedicated customer and technical support our team provides, and clients return year after year."
