SofterWare Named to Inc. 5000 for Eighth Consecutive Year

Inc. Magazine Unveils 35th Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies—the Inc. 5000

For the 8th Time, SofterWare Appears on the Inc. 5000 list, with Three-Year Sales Growth of 65%


NEW YORK, December 29, 2016Inc. magazine today ranked SofterWare on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. the list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

Doug Schoenberg, CEO and co-founder of SofterWare, Inc., said “Once again, we’re excited that we’ve been able to make the Inc. 5000 for eight years in a row. Our outstanding staff, and their commitment to customer satisfaction, is the reason we’ve achieved this success. They’re the ones who have helped us become one of the largest and most sought after software providers to nonprofits and educational institutions.”

The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com 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 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 18 through 20, in San Antonio, TX. Speakers include some of the greatest entrepreneurs of this and past generations, such as best-selling author and strategist Tony Robbins, SoulCycle co-founders Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice, Cornerstone OnDemand founder, president and CEO Adam Miller, Marvell Technology Group director and co-founder Weili Dai, and New Belgium Brewing co-founder and executive chair Kim Jordan.

  • DonorPerfect – online fundraising software for nonprofit organizations.

Client Success Stories

Land Trust Moves from Home Grown System to a New Home with DonorPerfect!

DonorPerfect Client Logo

Since 1972, Five Valleys Land Trust's mission has been to protect and preserve western Montana's natural legacy – our river corridors, wildlife habitat, agricultural lands, and scenic open spaces. Five Valleys has 11 staff members (9 full-time and 2 part-time) and utilizes 40 active volunteers, with a volunteer list of over 100.

Business Challenge

Glenn Marangelo, Development Director since May 2005, noted "Our old database was seriously outdated and could not adequately handle the functions we wanted it to. It was clunky to pull information from it, to export information from/into it, and did not easily record and track all of the information we wanted – especially in regard to major donors. Also, our monthly giving program (separate from the database) was becoming harder and more expensive to manage every month."

DonorPerfect Online Benefits

  • "Our DonorPerfect system was set up quickly and it was so easy to gain proficiency in using it from day one."
  • "I can quickly pull up my most frequently used reports and can easily create a report for just about anything without complication."
