Oregon’s Visp.net is among the Fastest-Growing US Firms
Grants Pass, OR – Joining the rank of prominent companies in the United States, Visp.net has just made the Inc. 5000: Inc. Magazine’s list of the country’s fastest-growing private companies.
The internationally known publication first opened the annual listing in 1981 and qualifies US-based independent companies that are privately held. This year’s list, which the magazine publicly released on August 24, considered the revenue growth of companies from 2006 to 2009. Visp.net saw 40% growth in the three-year period, placing itself in the top 4000 of the general list and in the top 500 in the IT industry.
While Visp.net has experienced consistent growth in past years, 2010 was the first year the company’s gross revenues were substantial enough to qualify for the Inc. 5000 list. Visp.net founder and CEO Todd Grannis expressed the firm’s enthusiasm for the acknowledgment, and explained that Visp.net is stronger today by resolving key issues for its clients. “The problem today is internet providers and even wireless internet providers are experiencing extreme pressure from larger competitors. Companies in this environment must cut costs or die. There are three key strategic opportunities for ISPs in this landscape: 1) provide exceptional customer service; 2) form strategic alliances with industry experts to eliminate high-overhead commodity services; and 3) streamline business processes. Visp.net helps our customers do this.”
He attributes the achievement to the company’s organization, saying, “We have a fantastic team of people.” However, he added that the company owes much to its customers. “We’re very grateful to our customers for their confidence in us. Once they start with us, they rarely leave. We’re successful when our ISP partners are successful, so it’s our number one priority to help them thrive.”
Founded in 1996 in Grants Pass, Oregon, Visp.net also placed 68th in Oregon’s Top 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies earlier this year. Grannis disclosed that the company is adding significant new resources to deliver more innovative solutions for their partners in the near future.
Visp.net’s products and services significantly reduce overhead and operational risks for hundreds of North American ISPs who partner with them. The company provides ISPs and Wireless ISPs with a complete turnkey solution to improve services and cut operational overhead. The solutions include: highly robust wholesale back-office services, “Ultimate Front Office” subscriber billing and management software, connectivity, 24×7 subscriber support, email, spam and virus filtering, webhosting, and wireless ISP management tools.
With constant research and development, the company has garnered several awards over the years, but they remain relentless. As Grannis said of their company, “We’re more excited now than ever; the best is yet to come.”
