Infusionsoft Named to Software Magazine's 26th Annual Software 500

Software Magazine Ranks Infusionsoft as One of the World's Largest Software Companies

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - October 21, 2008) - Infusionsoft, the leader in marketing automation software for small businesses, today announced its inclusion on the Software Magazine's Software 500 ranking of the world's largest software and service providers, now in its 26th year. Infusionsoft was ranked in the top ten companies with software revenue of $5 - $10 million.

"The 2008 Software 500 results show that revenue growth in the software and services industry was healthy, with total Software 500 revenue of $451.8 billion worldwide for 2007 representing 14.7% growth from the previous year," says John P Desmond, editor of Software Magazine and Softwaremag.com "We have added over 100 new companies to the list this year. We're seeing strong growth from more companies based outside the U.S., especially from systems integration and outsourcing services firms based in India."

"Total employee head count was a modest 1.3% increase from the last year. Sectors seeing the highest rates of employee growth included Software as a Service, Search/Portal tools, Supply Chain/Manufacturing, Legacy System Renewal/Integration and Database," Desmond says.

"The Software 500 helps CIOs, senior IT managers and IT staff research create the short list of business partners," Desmond says. "It is a quick reference of vendor viability. And the online version to be posted soon at http://www.Softwaremag.com is searchable by category, making it what we call the online catalog to enterprise software."

Some 42% of the 2007 Software 500 companies are privately held.

"Infusionsoft's inclusion in the Software 500 list is a testament to the rate at which we are growing as small businesses partner with us to grow their companies more quickly and easily," said Clate Mask, CEO of Infusionsoft. "This ranking marks our evolution from a quickly growing small company into the leagues of successful, established software vendors."

The Software 500 is a revenue-based ranking of the world's largest software and services suppliers targeting medium to large enterprises, their IT professionals, software developers and business managers involved in software and services purchasing.

This includes revenues from software licenses, maintenance and support, training and software-related services and consulting. Suppliers are not ranked on their total corporate revenue, since many have other lines of business, such as hardware. The financial information was gathered by a survey prepared by King Content Co. and posted at http://www.Softwaremag.com, as well as from public documents.
