Every growing business knows how exciting it is to see its team and customers breaking new ground and making a mark on the world.\nGrowth is both thrilling and encouraging. And thrilled is exactly how we felt when Hubstaff made the 2019 Inc. 5000 list of the most successful companies in America for the second year in a row.\nICYMI: The Inc. 5000 list is a unique look at the most successful companies blazing trails in the American economy’s most dynamic segment — independent small and mid-sized businesses. We know that small businesses can grow to accomplish huge things, and some companies you might have heard of (Microsoft, Dell, LinkedIn, to name just a few) gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.\nLast year, Hubstaff debuted on the U.S. Fastest Growing Companies List at #1352. This year, thanks in part to a 498% increase in sales growth over three years, we skyrocketed our time tracking and project management software startup to #852.\nWhich means a lot since for the first time we broke into the top 1,000 companies.\nWe couldn’t have done it without you\nIf you’re a Hubstaff customer or blog reader, thank you!\nThe only reason we’re able to grow our business is because of you. Here’s how our CEO and co-founder, Dave Nevogt, put it:\n“We’re thrilled to be named to the Inc. 5000 list for the second year in a row. This recognition signifies continued growth for us as a company, and for our customers who are working hard to grow their businesses every day.”\nWhat’s new this year\nNearly 500% growth doesn’t come out of nowhere. The Hubstaff team made some significant changes and launched a new product, both of which helped earn a spot on the Inc. 5000.\n\nOur team grew by 25% to over 50 hard-working Hubstaffers\nWe introduced Hubstaff Tasks, an Agile project management app\n\n“We publicly launched our Agile project management tool, Hubstaff Tasks, and it has been a gamechanger for our customers,” said Jared Brown, Hubstaff CTO and co-founder. “Those who want a more comprehensive tool for managing their business can now connect time tracking and project management — simplifying both while saving more time and money.”\nHubstaff Tasks is built on Agile principles, using Kanban-style project boards and sprints to help teams get more done. The web app allows for more collaboration and productivity, which are two major benefits for any business, including remote teams like Hubstaff.\nFrom all of us at Hubstaff, thank you for your support! We look forward to continuing our growth and being part of your own business’s success.\nAbout Hubstaff and the Inc. 5000\nHubstaff time tracking and Hubstaff Tasks agile project management software help businesses reach new levels of productivity.
