Explore Consulting Achieves Fourth Consecutive Listing on the Inc. 5000’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies List

BELLEVUE, WA – August 19, 2010 – Explore Consulting, a professional services company that provides innovative technology solutions for managing business data and a cost-effective approach to completely outsourced IT in the Cloud, today announced that for the fourth year in a row it has been named to the prestigious “Inc. 5000” list of the fastest growing private companies in America.


“Our ability to grow in challenging economic times really reinforces our dedication to the cloud based technologies that we support and the outstanding consulting team that we’ve built,” said CEO Steve Jones. “We feel fortunate to work with so many great clients, many of whom also made the list this year.”


The company credits its continued growth to increased demand for software as a service (SaaS), addition of new business lines, and its strong recurring customer base. Explore Consulting is a leading solution provider for NetSuite (NYSE:N), the industry’s leading provider of cloud-based financials/ERP software suites. With a heavy focus on integration and extensibility of cloud-based business systems, Explore has developed industry-leading PC and mobile platforms for seamless data integration in the cloud. Additionally, Explore became an Amazon WebStore solution provider this year and that has led to growth in Explore’s Ecommerce practice.


The Inc. 5,000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2006 through 2009. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by the first week of 2006, and therefore able to show four full calendar years of sales. Additionally, they had to be U.S.-based, privately held, and independent–not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies–as of December 31, 2009. Revenue in 2006 must have been at least $200,000, and revenue in 2009 must have been at least $2 million.
