BEAVERTON, OR–(Marketwired – Aug 22, 2013) – Act-On Software, a leading provider of cloud-based integrated marketing automation software, today announced its ranking on the 32nd annual Inc. 500 list at NO. 172. This list ranks the nation’s fastest-growing private companies and represents the most important segment of the American economy — independent entrepreneurs. Companies such as Microsoft, Zappos, Intuit, Jamba Juice, Zipcar, Clif Bar, Vizio, Oracle, and many other well-known names gained early exposure as members of the Inc. 500|5000.
“It is an honor to be named to the Inc. 500 list,” said Raghu Raghavan, CEO of Act-On Software. “We are at the forefront of the next wave in enterprise software and our commitment to ongoing innovation and to our growing customer base of 1,700+ has made us a clear market leader.”
The 2013 Inc. 500, unveiled in the September issue of Inc., is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. To make the cut, companies had to achieve a staggering minimum of 918.59% in three-year sales growth. This year the Inc. 500’s aggregate revenue is $14.1 billion, with a median growth of 1739 percent. The companies on the 2013 Inc. 500 employ more than 52,100 people and generated over 44,912 jobs in the past three years.

“Not all the companies in the Inc. 500 | 5000 are in glamorous industries, but in their fields they are as famous as household name companies simply by virtue of being great at what they do. They are the hidden champions of job growth and innovation, the real muscle of the American economy,” says Inc. magazine Editor Eric Schurenberg.
