Aspire Software is pleased to announce its inclusion in Financial Times’ Fastest Growing Companies in the Americas list for 2021.

The list ranked 500 companies from across the Americas by compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in revenue between 2016 and 2019. Aspire came in at No. 279 with a growth rate of 46.9 percent.

Founded in 2013, Aspire Software serves more than 48,000 users in over 1,100 locations nationwide and is responsible for the management of nearly $3.5 billion in landscape-industry revenue.

“It’s an honor to be named among these fastest-growing companies,” said Mark Tipton, CEO of Aspire Software. “We’ve worked diligently to provide innovative solutions that help landscape companies succeed in their businesses, and we look forward to continuing to deliver for our clients as we grow our organization.”

According to Financial Times, the second annual ranking offers a glimpse into the relative strength of companies as they entered the COVID pandemic—and points to those likely to have the resilience to emerge from the crisis in good health. The technology sector accounts for 28 percent of the overall list for 2021.

Companies ranked met the following criteria:

  • Revenue of at least $100,000 generated in 2016 (or currency value equivalent according to the average of the actual fiscal year)
  • Revenue of at least $1.5M generated in 2019 (or currency value equivalent according to the average of the actual fiscal year).
  • An independent entity (not a subsidiary or branch office of any kind).
  • Revenue growth between 2016 and 2019 that was primarily organic (i.e., “internally” stimulated)
  • Headquartered in one of 20 American countries.
