MISSION VIEJO, California – September 22, 2021 – Ease Inc, developer of the cloud platform for mobile auditing on the plant floor, has been included in the Inc. 5000 for the first time. The Inc. 5000 recognizes the top 1% of privately held companies in the US.
Ease’s inclusion in the Inc. 5000 comes on the back of 4 years of strong growth, showing the extraordinary resilience of the business during a global pandemic and the growing importance of digital audits and data to shine a light on the plant floor within the manufacturing industry.
“It’s fantastic to be honored in this way and most importantly, for our employees and customers to be recognized for their hard work and innovation,” said Ease Inc. CEO, Eric Stoop. “The manufacturing industry still has a long way to go when it comes to digital transformation, and Ease is proud to be able to work hand in hand with manufacturers in more than 40 countries to drive increased efficiency, quality, employee safety and reduced operational risk.”
The Inc. 5000 is a list of the fastest-growing privately held companies in the United States. Companies are ranked based on revenue growth over a three-year period. Ease was ranked at position 289 amongst all software companies and 2,176 overall.
“The 2021 Inc. 5000 list feels like one of the most important rosters of companies ever compiled,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Building one of the fastest-growing companies in America in any year is a remarkable achievement. Building one in the crisis we’ve lived through is just plain amazing. This kind of accomplishment comes with hard work, smart pivots, great leadership, and the help of a whole lot of people.”
The Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2017 through 2020. To qualify, companies had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent – not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies. They needed to have generated revenue by March 31, 2017, and made at least $100,000 in revenue that year. Additionally, they had to meet a minimum revenue threshold of $2M in 2020.
