ECi CEO celebrates fast-growth listing

Fort Worth, Texas-based ECi Software Solutions has been named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing U.S.-based companies.

It's the fifth year for ECi to make the list.

"Our commitment to supporting the entrepreneurial spirit of independent business owners is helping them to grow, and we are proud to be growing right along with them," said Ron Books, president and CEO of ECi.

The company said its growth over the last three years can be attributed in part to making two of the office/furniture business management software systems available through the cloud; integrating a customer rewards program from a popular hardware co-op into one of its Lumber, Building Materials and Hardware business systems; achieving record 2012 sales for its business intelligence/CRM solution; and acquiring Derbyshire, England-based BlueSky Systems Solutions Limited, a back-office systems supplier for the European office products industry.
