SILICON SLOPES, Utah — August 14, 2019 — Inc. magazine today revealed that ObservePoint ranked No. 1221 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest growing private companies. Additionally, ObservePoint is No. 132 in the Software Industry in the United States and is the No. 8 Software company in the state of Utah.
The Inc. 5000 list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment: its independent small businesses. ObservePoint has seen an astonishing 337% growth rate over the last few years and as Co-founder and CEO, Rob Seolas, says, “We are just getting started.”
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
“We’re honored to be ranked among so many impressive companies on the Inc. 5000. ObservePoint has seen a tremendous amount of growth so far, and I am so proud of what ObservePoint has accomplished,” Seolas commented upon receiving the Inc. 5000 results. “Our team intends to revolutionize the way analytics leaders think about the quality of their data and the actual insights they can receive from their marketing technologies. We plan to make data collection workflow and process management easy for companies, giving them the ability to leverage all that martech has to offer so they can maximize their customer value.”
Rob Seolas and John Pestana started ObservePoint in 2007 after they identified a major problem with marketing and analytics technology. MarTech had been, and continues to be, an explosive industry with thousands of solutions. However, the quality of the data could be unreliable, so there was a need in the marketplace for software that could validate those technologies and ensure data quality.
Seolas and Pestana have built a product at the forefront of solving those data quality issues. ObservePoint helps the world’s leading enterprises validate and manage their data implementation and collection processes, providing data quality assurance and tag governance solutions. Their automated platforms help cross-departmental teams plan, deploy, QA, and validate their MarTech and analytics strategy at scale, giving them unparalleled data quality and complete confidence in their data, so they can create better experiences for their audiences and drive revenue.
Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, is available at www.inc.com/inc5000.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 10 to 12, 2019, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
