The annual list recognizes the fastest growing private American companies. We love to cover the Inc. 5000 because it gives us the opportunity to see hard revenue and growth statistics that private companies typically prefer to keep close to the chest.
Below we’ve listed 12 channel-facing companies that made the list. Our lineup is by no means comprehensive, as more companies than we could count utilize the indirect sales channel to some extent, but these 12 represent a diverse sample size. Vendors like GeoLinks, service providers like QOS Networks and successful agent partners like Sumo Communications are here. And a rapidly growing distributor tops our roundup.
The cloud distributor jumped from 68th on last year's list. Pax8 has secured a prominent place at the master agent/distributor table in the last two years. A prominent Intelisys cloud leader joined the distributor to help it merge the agent and MSP channels. Pax8's chief revenue officer wrote in a recent blog that the overlap between the two sales models is "inevitable."
Pax8 is the third fastest growing company in Colorado, according to Inc.
The Irvine, California-based managed network service provider has enjoyed staggered growth over the last few years. It attributed the explosion to its decision to pivot to SD-WAN services. The company expanded its channel reach this summer by signing an agreement with the master agent Intelisys. CEO Frank Cittadino recently penned a blog about what SD-WAN will be like in the 5G era.
The Utah-based company landed on the list for the second time, moving up from 2,185th. Sumo offers solutions from more than 300 vendors and is a successful player in the agent channel. Telarus recently recognized Sumo as its top contact center-selling partner, and Telstra named it top performing sales partner in 2017.
The California competitive local exchange carrier touts a business-class internet offering called ClearFiber that reaches speeds of 10 Gbps. GeoLinks also has been nudging its way into SD-WAN. It announced a partnership with managed network services provider QOS Networks earlier this year to introduce SD-WAN to the channel.
The Alabama-based company began as a VoIP solutions provider and became a prominent member of the AT&T Alliance Channel and Partner Exchange programs. Altaworx has been adding IoT solutions in recent years and partnered with master agent WTG last year.
This is the company's fifth appearance, and it has improved its rank each year. Bandwave is a Burlington, New Jersey-based broadband aggregator. We spoke to its founder and managing partner last year about its SD-WAN expertise.
nexVortex has finished in the Inc. 5000 nine times, originally slotting at 683rd in 2011. The Boca Raton, Florida-based company provides VoIP and call distribution services. Its channel partners include TCG, Telegration and Jenne.
