In the interest of encouraging economic development and especially innovation among private companies, the Inc. 5000 annually recognizes the fastest-growing companies in the country. Rankings are determined by the contenders’ percentage of revenue growth over a four year period; 2015 rankings are based on a comparison of growth from 2011 to 2014.




Phone (News - Alert).com, a provider of cloud communications and business phone services and solutions, has now placed on this list for the fourth consecutive year. Cloud-based phone services are still relatively uncommon but are rapidly growing in popularity due to the wide range of benefits offered over traditional telephony solutions. In addition to much lower setup and operating costs, cloud-based phone systems are much easier to scale, move and reconfigure, offer a wide range of unprecedented features and offer communications that are both higher-quality and more reliable.

“We're honored to be recognized along with other young companies that are changing the face of business in the United States,” commented Ari Rabban, CEO of Phone.com (News - Alert). “What I value most, being part of the Inc. 5000, is that it shows we are performing and growing consistently over the years.”

Phone.com ranked 4019 among the top 5000 private companies included in the lists, with a revenue growth rate of 72 percent.

The market may be young, but those actively involved face intense competition as companies vie for the upper hand and a lasting legacy in this particular sector that will carry through to the future when cloud-based phone systems are ubiquitous (which is essentially inevitable, considering the aforementioned advantages of deploying one). Therefore it is a testament to the quality of the company’s products that it has managed to sustain such consistent growth in an uncharted market that is being expanded with new providers almost every day.

“The story of this year's Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership,” said Eric Schurenberg, President and Editor-In-Chief of Inc. “In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top.”
