1-800 We Answer Ranks No. 2630 on the 2012 Inc. 5000 with Three-Year Sales Growth of 91%
NEW YORK, Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Inc. magazine ranked 1-800 We Answer Call Center among its top-growing 5000 United States privately owned businesses in its annual Inc. 500|5000 edition. This is the call center solution company’s third consecutive appearance on the list which focuses on the most significant segment of America’s economy: entrepreneurs who are determined to remain independent, grow their businesses, create jobs and fuel the nation’s economic recovery. 1-800 We Answer ranks alongside Yelp, Giftcards.com, and other top recognizable brands featured in this year’s list.
“1-800 We Answer provides innovative telephone answering service support and has fostered economic growth by creating jobs in the communities in which we’ve acquired call centers,” commented Rob Porter, President and CEO. “It’s the huge variety of medium and small business activity that makes America an exciting place to do business, and we focus on providing the tools and support that help every American business thrive.”
1-800 We Answer provides call center services to a growing list of nationwide corporations. Since its beginnings as a small local New York City telephone answering service, the company has provided award winning personalized customer care solutions for clients that help reduce operating costs and increase profits. Assuming ownership of the company in 2007, Porter initiated a period of rapid growth. Acquisitions including numerous regional answering services, market research and telemarketing companies and improved sales have elevated 1-800 We Answer into a nationwide communications solutions provider, currently operating 12 centers in 7 states. 1-800 We Answer’s core client services continue to provide robust live operator call center services, comprehensive call answering, virtual office and phone system services to businesses, government and civic agencies and higher education.
Porter remarked on one major event that exemplifies why 1-800 We Answer continues to grow and thrive in the call center industry. “Our company’s success depends on the agents and customer service team serving our clients in all of our locations. During the past year, our New York City and Boston locations stayed active during Hurricane Irene, which shut down most of the Mid-Atlantic and New England regions– almost immediately after the 2011 Inc. 5000 list appeared on the newsstands. We got every employee into work and home safely, and we counted on our team’s determination and drive to get the job done for our clients.”
This year’s Inc. 500|5000 feature discusses how companies like 1-800 We Answer have achieved a median growth rate of 97% in the current economic climate. The companies on this year’s list report creating over 400,000 jobs during the period of 2010 through 2012, and aggregate revenue for all businesses honored in the list reached $299 billion.
