“Only a tiny fraction of the nation’s companies have demonstrated such remarkably consistent high growth, particularly in the difficult economic environment of the past few years. This achievement truly puts you in rarefied company,” Inc. Magazine’s President and Editor-in-Chief, Eric Schurenberg, wrote when informing SportsSignup of the honor.
SportsSignup ranks No. 2929 overall on the 500|5000 list for 2014, with a three-year growth rate of 124 percent. SportsSignup ranked No. 2784 overall on the 500|5000 list for 2013, and No. 1687 overall on the 500|5000 list for 2012.
The magazine started the Inc. 500 list in 1982, and expanded it to 5000 in 2007.
“Our company has been on quite a run, and we’re honored and thankful to again make the Inc. Magazine 500|5000 list,” said Anthony Bruno, CEO of SportsSignup. “Our growth is a direct result of our customer-first focus, and the passion, skills and creativity every person on our team brings to the job every day. We all share in this achievement, and each individual should take great pride in driving such amazing results for our company and our customers.”
Two weeks ago, SportsSignup announced the availability of its next generation “all-in-one” Online Sports Management Solution, which provides sports organizations throughout the United States and Canada the ability to manage their administrative and communications tasks on one, easy-to-use, integrated platform.
A recent acquisition by SportsSignup was the catalyst for this expansion of services, which includes online content management (CMS) with integrated team websites, automated scheduling, standings, player statistics, tournament management including playoff bracketing, and iPhone and Android mobile apps.
The Inc. 500|5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth over a four-year period. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by the first week of the starting calendar year, and therefore able to show four full calendar years of sales. Additionally, they had to be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies — as of December 31 of the last year measured. Revenue in the initial year must have been at least $200,000, and revenue in the most recent year must have been at least $2 million.
SportsSignup services over 3,000 sports organizations in the United States and Canada, ranging from small, community-based non-profits to major league baseball clubs. The company processes more than 1.5 million registrations and facilitates in excess of $100 million in credit card payments on behalf of its customers each year.
