Inc. magazine revealed yesterday (8/14/19) that CMMS Data Group made 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.
“To be recognized by Inc. magazine is an incredible honor. What started out as a dream to help maintenance and facilities departments achieve maintenance excellence has become a reality. Thank you to my team and to our customers for making CMMS Data Group what it is today and for making the world more mechanically reliable.
— Ruth Hughes, Founder and CEO, CMMS Data Group
