Changes in Retail Result in 316% Growth for ActivEngage
August 20, 2014 (Orlando, FL) — ActivEngage, Inc., the most trusted brand in live chat, continues to have exceptional growth, ranking #1363 on Inc. Magazine’s eighth annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive list of the fastest-growing private companies in the nation.
The list represents a comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs. This year’s list of companies had an average growth of over 516 percent and collectively helped create over 46,000 American jobs.
“We are honored to be ranked among some of the most innovative companies in the nation for the third year in a row,” says Todd Smith, CEO and co-founder of ActivEngage. “Our continued growth is a result of two distinct evolutions taking place in retail. One, consumers now desire to use live chat as a shopping tool to help them make decisions before purchasing. And two, businesses are more careful to select a chat provider that has quality conversations with their online shoppers, provides innovative chat technology, and ultimately increases their bottom line.
This is the third consecutive year that ActivEngage has ranked on Inc. Magazine’s prestigious list of fastest-growing private companies. The company was recently voted the technology leader for live chat and ranked #53 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 list of fastest growing tech companies.
