OAK BROOK, Ill., Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Technology consultancy SWC Technology Partners this week was named to the 2012 Inc. 500|5000 list of the fastest-growing privately held U.S. companies, reflecting strong three-year growth fueled by a continually expanding portfolio of IT solutions for midmarket organizations. In the last year alone, SWC has not only extended its implementation capabilities to include Salesforce CRM, Windows 8 and System Center 2012 but also added digital design, search engine optimization, mobile app development and virtual CIO services to an established solution suite designed to help clients optimize productivity, profitability and customer relationships.
In its first appearance on the Inc. 500|5000 list, SWC ranked #3960 with revenue growth of 37% between 2008 and 2011. The ranking is restricted to companies that are U.S. – based, privately held, for profit, and independent – not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies – as of December 31, 2011.
Since the list was compiled, SWC's growth has accelerated with a 22% overall revenue increase between 2011 and 2012. The company is also engaging in a major expansion of both the workforce and the company's office space.
"It is clearly an honor for us to be recognized by Inc. as one of the nation's fastest growing companies. It continues to be a fun, rewarding experience here at SWC," said Bob Knott, President of SWC. "I am so proud of all the hard working, talented, high integrity people we have here. In the end, our success is driven by a clear understanding of what is best for our clients and the trust we have in each other as a team."
SWC's inclusion in the 2012 Inc. 500|5000 list is the latest in a series of recent accolades. Since February, the company has received its third Microsoft Central Region Partner Award in four years, its second consecutive ranking among the top 100 managed service providers worldwide, Computerworld 2012 Laureate honors for replacing the entire IT infrastructure of an inner-city Chicago school, recognition in the top 20 Crain's Chicago Business' Best Places to Work 2012, and inclusion in Chicago's 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For - for the fourth consecutive year.
