RICS Software Ranked Among America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies on Inc. Magazine's Inc. 5000

For the Third Consecutive Year, RICS Earns a Spot on the Prestigious Annual List

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwired - Sep 24, 2014) - Inc. magazine ranked RICS Software number 2,912 on its 33rd annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. This award win marks the third year in a row RICS has earned a spot on the prestigious list, which represents the most comprehensive look at America's independent entrepreneurs.

"We are honored to be recognized by Inc. for the third consecutive year," said Jason Becker, COO of RICS. "Our momentum is palpable and this prestigious award validates our diligent work and the successes we've celebrated over the past three years. Our passion to bring modern, affordable and reliable retail technology to the market is what drives customers to RICS."

The 2014 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc., is the most competitive crop in the list's history. The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 516 percent. The Inc. 5000's aggregate revenue is $211 billion, generating 505,000 jobs over the past three years.

"What surprises me, even though I know it's coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved," says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. "This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn't change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship."

RICS attributes its growth to the team's tireless dedication to democratize retail technology. RICS arms small to midsize retailers with powerful technology-driven advantages that have traditionally only been accessible to large retailers. RICS helps retailers manage every aspect of their business. Over the last three years, RICS has experienced a 287 percent increase in the number of stores using its software solution, and more than 1,500 stores, including New Balance, Halloween Express, and Fleet Feet Sports, utilize the technology to take control of their data and get an accurate snapshot of their overall business performance.
