IQMS, a leader in the design and development of manufacturing enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, today announced it has been ranked by magazine as one of the fastest growing private companies in America. Listed at No. 4,723, IQMS experienced a three-year organic sales growth of 11% to place on the list for the first time. IQMS is one of only a select few manufacturing ERP software vendors that made the prestigious Inc. 5000 list this year.
“Despite the tenuous economy, the past three years have been exciting for IQMS,” said Randy Flamm, president of IQMS. “We could not have achieved placement on the list without the support of our loyal customers whose constructive feedback every step of the way has allowed us to create a superior manufacturing ERP system.”
Now in its fifth year, annual 500|5000 list represents a comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy – America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs. While compiling the impressive list, magazine identified the ability to outpace the competition in both performance and employment as a common theme among this year’s winners. The companies on this year’s list report having created a combined total of more than 350,000 jobs in the past three years.
“There is an extraordinary amount of talk about job creation today, and growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is,” said Leigh Buchanan, editor at large for magazine, in the September 2011 issue.
“The entrepreneurs on the Inc. 500—and beyond them, those on the Inc. 5000, and beyond them, the millions of Americans starting and managing young companies—are providing the jobs, the momentum, and, perhaps most important, the optimism to shoulder our wheel-spinning economy out of the mire,” continued Buchanan.
