The 2018 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of
538.2%, and a median rate of 171.8 percent. The Inc. 5000's aggregate
revenue was $206.1 billion in 2017, accounting for 664,095 jobs over the

"If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it's unparalleled recognition of
your years of hard work and sacrifice," says Inc. Editor in Chief James
Ledbetter. "The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay.
What doesn't change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the
forces that shape our lives."

the manufacturing-centric approach of the IQMS system. It uniquely
combines robust ERP and MES functionality into one comprehensive system
designed to help manufacturers optimize their operations, while
providing the flexibility to deploy on-premises or in the cloud.
Additionally, because all data is managed by the same database,

operations, business processes, and supply chain that empowers them to

"From the start, we have focused on empowering manufacturers to maximize
their operational efficiency and effectiveness using our IQMS software.
That commitment is reflected by the rapid rise in companies choosing
IQMS to run their manufacturing operations, from new customers to
existing users expanding their businesses," said Gary Nemmers, president
