Pleasanton, California (EastBayDaily) — SmartZip, a leading provider of analytics-powered predictive marketing solutions, announced that it has been ranked #20 on the San Francisco Business Times’ Fast 100 list of rapidly growing private companies in the Bay Area. Headquartered in Pleasanton, CA, SmartZip stood out as the 4th fastest growing company in the East Bay. The 2014 Fast 100 ranks companies based on revenue growth from 2011 through 2013.
SmartZip’s emergence as a top Bay Area business is testament to the increased interest in big data and predictive analytics technology. SmartZip is one of the first companies to translate big data into meaningful benefits to small businesses by precisely targeting “most likely customers” through automated marketing channels. This latest recognition comes at the heels of SmartZip being named #42 fastest-growing private company in the nation, and second fastest growing private company in the Software category, by Inc. 500|5000 (based on revenue growth from 2010 to 2013). Earlier this year, SmartZip was selected to the prestigious 2014 Class of REachTM, a strategic technology accelerator program by the National Association of Realtors. SmartZip was also named a Finalist for the 2014 Inman Innovator Award.
“After just returning from an incredible Inc. 500 awards gala honoring SmartZip, I’m simply humbled to learn that we are ranked 20th on the FAST 100 list,” said Avi Gupta, president and CEO of SmartZip. "This is a huge honor for our entire team, especially given the phenomenal companies surrounding us in the Bay Area. We couldn’t have achieved this growth without our amazing team and the support of our loyal customers, partners and investors."
Having just raised a Series-B round of venture financing, SmartZip continues to invest heavily in product innovation and its predictive marketing technology. A new product designed to accelerate repeat and referral business, complementing their current product SmartTargeting which identifies new business opportunities, will be unveiled in early 2015.
