Widewail has announced it has earned a top spot on the prestigious Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies. A three-year growth rate of 1,082% earned Widewail the rank of #544 on the annual list. Notably, the company was ranked #4 overall in its home state of Vermont. The ranking is driven by the growing impact of customer reviews and demand for reputation management across a variety of industries.
Widewail’s remarkable growth can be attributed to a wide array of factors. There has been a marked surge in organizations seeking to leverage their reputations as online reviews have increasingly influenced their businesses. With a core client base of automotive dealers who are focused on boosting their online reputations and driving more business in an increasingly competitive arena, Widewail’s proprietary approach to reputation management incorporates sentiment analysis of online review content and reporting tools that deliver actionable insights that help them improve and maintain their online reputations.
“Providing effective solutions that help our clients improve and maintain a positive public perception of their brands has emerged as a critical business need,” said Matt Murray, CEO, Widewail. “Companies in every industry are looking for ways to learn as much as possible about what drives consumer preference and have demonstrated a hunger for deeper insights that can drive operational decision making. Our approach ensures that they understand the subtle nuances of how people are talking about them and gives them the tools they need to address the good, the bad and the ugly in the most effective way possible. This Inc. 5000 rank is a testament to how vital and valuable this focus is for the modern local business.”
The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238%. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.
“Running a business has only gotten harder since the end of the pandemic,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “To make the Inc. 5000 — with the fast growth that requires — is truly an accomplishment. Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that are building our future.”
