Cincinnati, OH, September 7, 2010 — OneCommand (www.onecommand.com), the nation’s leader in preference-based, automated, multi-channel marketing, today announced that, for the fourth consecutive year, the company has been named to Inc. Magazine’s list of America’s fastest growing companies – the Inc. 5000. According to Inc. Magazine, the list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent-minded entrepreneurs.
“The leaders of the companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have figured out how to grow their businesses during the longest recession since the Great Depression,” said Inc. president Bob LaPointe. “The 2010 Inc. 5000 showcases a particularly hardy group of entrepreneurs.”
In the period measured by Inc., OneCommand introduced innovative new products and feature additions to its suite of integrated and automated, multi-channel communication solutions, including Equity Scoring, an enhanced Mobile Marketing platform, and a variety of new reporting and ROI analysis tools. Designed to streamline the owner lifecycle, reduce marketing expense and generate superior customer satisfaction, OneCommand’s products focus on the delivery of the right message, at the right time, and through the consumer’s preferred channel. OneCommand attributes its continued growth to its mission of helping clients realize significant improvements in loyalty and retention, frequency of visit and overall profitability.
“We are pleased to once again rank with the dynamic, thriving and fast-growing companies that make up the Inc. 5000 list,” said OneCommand CEO Al Babbington. “Few industries have experienced the challenges that the auto industry has faced over the past two years, and at OneCommand we consider ourselves lucky to serve the most resilient and creative group of entrepreneurs and businesspeople anywhere – auto dealers. As we move into 2011, we continue to focus on helping our dealership clients grow their businesses by providing them with cost-effective and cutting-edge marketing technologies that help them find, target and retain customers.”
Despite the fact that most of this year’s measuring period of 2006-2009 took place during the latest recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $321.6 billion, up more than 50 percent from last year. The effects of the recession are seen, however, in the median three-year growth rate, which dropped to 96 percent from last year’s 126 percent. This year’s Inc. 5000 employ a record 1.4 million people, up from one million on last year’s list.
