CHICAGO, Aug. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Geckotech, a leading Cloud-based Phone Service provider, announced that it ranked No. 1878 on Inc. magazine's fourth annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies, with three-year growth of 144 percent.
"The leaders of the companies on this year's Inc. 5000 have figured out how to grow their businesses during the longest recession since the Great Depression," said Inc. president Bob LaPointe. "The 2010 Inc. 5000 showcases a particularly hardy group of entrepreneurs."
Since 2003, Geckotech has experienced enormous success by providing a turn-key outsourced phone service to businesses nationwide using reliable Cisco IP technology. Organizations ranging from SMBs to enterprises are quickly moving their phone servers to the cloud with Geckotech's outsourced voice and data solution. Cloud-based phone service helps to satisfy a number of organizational demands, including expansion, cost reduction, the ability to connect multiple locations, ease of management and the need for enhanced security. Unlike traditional telecom providers, Geckotech is accountable for phone system maintenance and management, reliable and responsive service, feature deployment and predictable cost.
Geckotech is ranked No. 80 among telecommunications companies to make the list. The Telecommunications sector proved to be a high-growth industry, boasting total growth rate of 119 percent.
"Geckotech is honored to be recognized for the second time by Inc. magazine among the most dynamic, fast-growth companies in the U.S.," said Josh Robbins, Managing Partner of Geckotech. "Being named to the 2010 Inc. 5000 list validates Geckotech's continued success and innovative business model during a time of economic uncertainty. Our strong business processes have poised the company for steady growth as we continue to deliver the most reliable Voice over IP technology coupled with high-touch customer service."
The 2010 Inc. 5000, unveiled on Inc.com, serves as a unique illustration of the profound changes taking place in the U.S. economy. Despite the fact that most of this year's measuring period of 2006-2009 took place during the latest recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $321.6 billion, up more than 50 percent from last year. This year's Inc. 5000 employ a record 1.4 million people, up from one million on last year's list. With unemployment remaining stubbornly high, policymakers and business leaders will do well to look to the Inc. 5000 companies for fresh ideas on achieving growth and creating jobs.
