We rarely post about those we have worked with, but sometimes events transpire that demand you tip your cap. Such is the case with IQMS, the Paso Robles, California-based provider of manufacturing enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and manufacturing execution systems (MES).
IQMS has placed on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America for the sixth year in a row. IQMS qualified for the list with an organic growth rate of 75 percent over the past three years. Inc. magazine gathered its 2016 list of elite companies by measuring revenue growth from 2012 to 2015.
The 2016 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history, with the average company on the list achieving a three-year growth of 433 percent. The combined revenue of the companies on the list is $200 billion, and they collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8 percent of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found here.
“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Eric Schurenberg, president and editor-in-chief of Inc. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great, usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
The increasing customer demand that has fueled IQMS’ strong, long-term growth can be attributed to the manufacturing-centric approach of the IQMS system. It uniquely combines robust ERP and MES functionality into one comprehensive system designed to help manufacturers optimize their operations. Additionally, because all data is managed by the same database, customers have an unparalleled unified view across their manufacturing operations, business processes, and supply chain that empowers them to compete more effectively in today’s global market.
“Empowering manufacturers to maximize their operational efficiency and effectiveness using IQMS software is our top priority, and the strength of that commitment is reflected by the rapid rise in customers choosing IQMS to run their manufacturing operations,” says Gary Nemmers, president and CEO of IQMS. “We are honored to be included on the Inc. 5000 list for 2016, which recognizes the strong growth of IQMS, which has been driven by the successes of our customers.”
Bravo, IQMS! Job well done—again and again and again and again and again and again.
