Software Magazine Ranks FastSpring as one of the World’s Largest Software Companies
SANTA BARBARA, CA—September 1, 2014: FastSpring, a software industry leader offering a complete e-commerce solution for payments and subscriptions, is ranked for the first time in Software Magazine’s list of top 500 software companies. FastSpring landed at 444 in the Software 500, a revenue-based annual ranking of the world’s largest software and services suppliers, targeting medium to large enterprises, their IT professionals, software developers, and business managers involved in software and services purchasing.
“FastSpring is proud to be recognized for growth in the software industry,” said Chris Lueck, CEO at FastSpring. “Our commitment to product excellence and superior customer service has resulted in 60% annual growth over the past four years. We have a strong base of clients and boast a customer service satisfaction rate of 97%, which positions us for even more future success.”
The Software 500 ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue from the 2013 fiscal year. This includes revenue from software licenses, maintenance and support, training, and software-related services, and consulting. Suppliers are not ranked on total corporate revenue, since many have other lines of business, such as hardware. Financial information is gathered by a survey prepared by Rockport Custom Publishing, LLC, using public documents and company input. It is published in print as well as posted online at www.softwaremag.com as both a digital edition and searchable database.
“The Software 500 helps CIOs, senior IT managers, and IT staff research and create the short list of business partners,” says John P. Desmond, editor. “It is a quick reference of vendor viability. And the online version, to be posted soon at www.softwaremag.com, is searchable by category, making it what we call the online catalog to enterprise software.”
