Cellit Named as One of Inc. 500's Fastest Growing Companies of 2010

CHICAGO, Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Cellit, a leading provider of mobile marketing solutions, has been honored by Inc. Magazine in their annual ranking of the fastest growing businesses in America. This year's Inc. 500 rankings were based on measured revenue growth from 2006 to 2009 for U.S.-based, privately held companies. Cellit's revenue growth was an astounding 1186%, placing Cellit at #262 on this prestigious list and #10 for Chicago based companies.





Founded in 2005, Cellit has grown from its roots of providing on-demand real estate info via its House4Cell platform, to powering nationwide mobile campaigns for clients including IKEA, Subway, Blue Man Group, Cirque du Soleil, the Tribune Corporation and countless small and medium sized businesses. With a precision focus on customer-relationship-management through the mobile space, Cellit provides mobile solutions to clients that are quantifiable, cost effective and immediate.

"I am fortunate to have surrounded myself with an incredibly passionate, bright, and motivated team," said David Wachs, President and Founder of Cellit. "Building our company on the three pillars of industry leading technology, superior strategic guidance, and proactive customer support has enabled us to grow - and even flourish - during these difficult economic times."

In addition to Cellit's inclusion on this year's list, two of Cellit's clients were also recognized in the rankings: GPS Insight, a provider of GPS tracking, navigation and messaging technology to fleet based customers, and ModCloth, an online retailer specializing in vintage clothing, accessories and decor. Both were early adopters for mobile technology, and have integrated the Cellit platform into the fabric of their business.

"We needed reliable, simple SMS text messaging communication between our customers and their drivers, and the capability to send urgent alerts in real time. There is no substitute for the type of mission critical, profoundly reliable service we receive every day from Cellit," said Robert Donat, CEO of GPS Insight, whose company was #281 in the survey.

"Our customers are tech savvy and on the go. Mobile helps us connect with them when they want, how they want and wherever they are. ModCloth's text messaging efforts produce instant engagement and feedback from our most loyal customers," said Crystal Smith, SMS Coordinator at ModCloth, whose company was the #2 ranked company with 17,191% growth.

Cellit's growth during this otherwise turbulent economic period is a reflection of the explosive interest in mobile technology and its impact on the consumer, combined with Cellit's continued investment in systems and staff. Since 2005, Cellit has increased staff by 700%, launched 620,000 mobile campaigns, and sent over 33 million messages.

"As a company, Cellit sets incredibly high expectations, and we're especially honored to be recognized for our achievements in becoming an industry leading mobile technology provider," said Wachs. "Based on our growth during the first half of 2010, we're already looking forward to submitting to the Inc. 500 for 2011."
