INDIANAPOLIS, August 12, 2020 – Inc. magazine today revealed that AIS is No. 1331 on its annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Intuit, Zappos, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
This is the second year in a row that AIS has appeared on the Inc. 5000, moving from No. 1823 to No. 1331 in just one year. “We transition our clients from seeing IT as a cost center to seeing it as an enablement tool to help them scale, grow, and differentiate themselves in their markets. This gives us a high retention rate and as they grow, we grow, too,” said Lamont Hatcher, CEO of AIS. “In addition to growing with our current clients, our rapid growth can also be attributed to our investment in hiring best-in-class people who help our clients understand how to digitally transform their businesses to gain a competitive edge.”
The 2020 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2016 and 2019. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2016. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2019. “Our growth rate over the past three years is 335.25%. I am proud of the success our company has achieved, and am excited for our continued growth.”
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 at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are also being featured in the September issue of Inc., available on newsstands August 12.
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held virtually from October 23 to 27, 2020. As always, speakers will include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
