TOPSFIELD, MA--(Marketwired - August 17, 2015) - For the first time, BrainSell has made the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America.

Founded in 1994, BrainSell provides best-in-class business software and services with unbiased advice.

"We are ecstatic to see BrainSell ranking on the list of Inc. 5000 fastest-growing companies. To be recognized as one of the most rapidly-expanding companies in America is a real honor," stated CEO Jim Ward. "This award is a testament to the hard work of our team as well as the diversity and quality of our client base."

BrainSell ranks at #3545 on this year's list (#108 in Massachusetts), and also ranks highly in their industry segment (#263 in software). Inc. states that 2015 was the most competitive year since the list was started, and that the average company on the list archives over 400% growth over the last three years. Since last year, BrainSell has opened a successful NetSuite practice and has rapidly expanded their BPM (business process management) and marketing automation practices.
