TechLink Services is excited to announce that we have been named to the Inc 5000 List of Fastest Growing US Companies for the 3rd consecutive year. With a 3-year growth rate of 303%, TechLink Services nearly doubled revenue between 2015 and 2016. Being included in the prestigious list alongside companies like Broadvoice, Sandler Partners, and Broad Sky Networks, is truly an honor for the entire TechLink team.
“Being listed for the 3rd consecutive year is an amazing achievement for the TechLink leadership and team members,” said Mike Mudd, CEO of TechLink Services. “Achieving the year-over-year growth needed to meet the Inc. 5000 list requirements is certainly not an easy task, but we are certainly pleased with the outcome.” TechLink leaders point to two specific drivers of growth in 2016.
Interactive Portal and Mobile Applications
With hundreds of technicians working in the field each day, the need for real-time communication and project management is critical for creating “first trip success” for our clients. The Mobi app, launched earlier last year, and our interactive portal, SIMPL, give customers visibility into the progress of each project in real time. The portal and mobile app’s feature-rich flexibility has been a game-changer for our technicians and our clients, resulting in fewer return trips to customer sites and faster completion of installation projects.
Personnel Training and Certification
In addition to giving technicians the tools they need to work more efficiently, we also directed resources toward improving the technical knowledge of our installers. Our recruitment and training division of TechLink focuses solely on technical and product specific training certifications and the development of videos for on-demand education. Additionally, we created teams of project managers to focus on industry-specific technologies for retail, healthcare, data communications, and digital signage. This laser focus on education, training, and certification ensures our installers maintain the highest level of technical and product knowledge, resulting in best-of-breed installation services.
Looking Ahead – Business and Partnership Development
“In 2016, we focused our resources on reinvesting in our technology and people.” Mudd continued. “I’m confident that our strategy for 2017 will only keep that momentum going and put TechLink back on the Inc 5000 list next year.”
TechLink recently completed the acquisition of Blue Ridge Solutions, a North Carolina website and application development firm. While the two companies are still working to integrate the brands, one thing is certain. The combination of Blue Ridge’s rich development knowledge and TechLink’s service provider partnerships results in greater flexibility and the power to focus on developing deeper API connections with clients. This integration into service provider’s CRM systems and order management is just one more way TechLink is strengthening relationships with its customers.
We’d like to extend our sincerest thanks to our customers, partners, technicians, and employees for placing their trust in TechLink Services. Without you, we would not have been able to achieve the successes we’ve seen over the past few years!
