Inc. magazine revealed that Appogee, a company that serves as the Apple vendor to Fortune 1000 accounts across the US, is No. 2769 overall and No. 16 in Computer Hardware on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment – its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“We’ve proven that the Fortune 1000 truly has a desire and need for an IT vendor that is an extreme specialist in its field, takes great care of its customers, and executes daily with speed and accuracy.” -Tim Hassett, Appogee Co-Founder
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
Appogee specializes in ensuring that Fortune 1000 and Healthcare customers have the smoothest and most successful Apple deployments providing Apple hardware, services, device management, and anything related to an enterprise Apple deployment. Apple makes the best computer hardware in the world, but there is still a wall when trying to get that technology into the workplace. Appogee tears that wall down handling everything that touches the Apple ecosystem to create a full strategy based on your company needs. Each engagement is unique and tailored to the client’s specific needs. “What separates us is that we choose to be an Apple first and Apple only business,” says Co-Founder Kristie King. “Just like you would consult a subject matter expert in law or medicine we believe you should have that same opportunity in technology. We are those experts for Apple.”
