Endorsed Programs make Inc. top 5,000 list

Two CDA Endorsed Programs have been named on Inc. Magazine’s 2012 list of the top 5,000 fastest-growing companies.

Demandforce, making the list for the fourth, and final, year in a row, is ranked No. 29 in the software industry and No. 322 overall this year; and ProSites, ranked No. 267 in the advertising and marketing industry and No. 3,001 overall, was featured for the third year in a row.  

Demandforce provides an electronic patient communication system that integrates with existing practice management software to help bring in new patients and retain existing patients, automatically.

“We are very proud to be listed in the Inc. 500 for the fourth year in a row,” said Rick Berry, president of Demandforce. “This has been an incredible year for us, and with the recent acquisition by Intuit, we will continue to focus on helping the dental community thrive in the Internet economy, along with further developing our partnership with the CDA.”

In May, Demandforce was purchased by Intuit, Inc. for approximately $423.5 million. Inc. also ranked the company No. 15 on a list of top companies in the San Francisco Metro Area.

Demandforce was founded in 2003 and has 350 employees.

ProSites combines website design with search engine marketing techniques to help doctors maximize their online visibility and drive practice growth. The company’s list of services also includes mobile website design, local search marketing, and social media strategies.

“Being recognized by Inc. Magazine for three years in a row is a tremendous honor and an achievement that we are very proud of,” said Lance McCollough, founder and CEO of ProSites. “This is a testament to our team’s commitment to helping doctors grow their practice through our innovative Internet marketing solutions.”

ProSites was founded in 2003 and has 58 employees. 

Inc. Magazine compiled the top 5,000 fastest-growing companies list based on companies’ percentage of revenue growth from 2008 through 2011. According to the magazine, in order to qualify, companies had to be based in the United States, privately held, for profit and independent — not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies.

For consideration, companies were required to meet revenue minimums — $100,000 in 2008 and $2 million in 2011.          

Every CDA Endorsed Program has been researched and approved by a group of dentists who make up the Council on Endorsed Programs. They evaluate each company using strict criteria, and only the best earn the CDA endorsement. For more information on CDA Endorsed Programs, visitcdaendorsedprograms.com
