PROVO, Utah, November 14, 2012 – XANT, the leading sales automation and analytics platform for inside sales professionals, today announced it ranked 347 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America. From 2007 to 2011, XANT grew 219 percent. “We are very excited to be among those recognized by Deloitte,” said David Elkington, CEO and founder of XANT. “Until Q4 2011, our company grew completely organically without outside funding to become the industry leader within the inside sales space. Since we have recently taken funding from Hummer Winblad and Josh James, our growth has increased even more and we look forward to building the next Utah-based billion-dollar business.” Eric Openshaw, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) leader, congratulated the companies who have received the award and said those mentioned have outpaced their competition and are reinventing business today. “The companies on the Fast 500 list are among those that have demonstrated remarkable innovation, creativity and business savvy,” said Bill Ribaudo, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP. “As a result, these companies have continued to successfully forge ahead in a challenging economic environment. We applaud the leadership and employees of XANT for this impressive accomplishment.” To learn more about the XANT PowerSuite sales automation platform, or to set up a free trial, please visit www.www.insidesales.com or call a sales rep at (877) 200-5698.
