Groove Named to Inc. 5000 List for Four Years Running

2021 Inc. 5000 List - Groove

The 2022 Inc. 5000 list is out, and, for the fourth time in a row, Groove has been named to this prestigious list of the fastest-growing privately held companies in the United States. Groove’s three-year revenue growth put it in the top 50% of ranked companies. This is the fourth year in a row that Groove has ranked on Inc.’s list of the nation’s most successful private companies. 

The rise of hybrid and remote-work over the past two years has driven strong and sustained demand for technology to boost employee productivity and collaboration. Today, record inflation and a looming recession are prompting companies to accelerate their digital transformation efforts to boost the efficiency and output of their pre- and post-sales revenue teams. 

Maximizing sales productivity is essential in turbulent economic times. In a recent Gartner blog post titled “A Nightmare in the C-Suite,” Gartner Senior Research Director Betsy Gregory-Hosler stated that if CFOs begin cutting costs, “sales and productivity may make it out alive1.” Gregory-Hosler goes on to say that “IT, Sales and R&D are the most popular recipients of planned budget increases in the next 12 months1.”

Groove has achieved record growth over the past three years by enabling large and complex enterprises to quickly boost sales productivity. Groove continues to see strong demand from traditional industries that are drawn to the ease of use, high adoption rates, and customizable industry workflows made possible by its Salesforce-native platform.

“It’s been a crazy three years,” said Chris Rothstein, CEO and Co-Founder of Groove. “A record economy was stopped in its tracks by Covid and is now hampered again by a looming recession. However, through it all, we’ve continued to see strong demand from companies looking to boost productivity with an easy-to-use platform that can be customized to meet the needs of any industry or revenue team. This is where our decision to build a Salesforce-native platform is really paying off.”

Groove Conversations builds on existing revenue intelligence capabilities to enable revenue teams to access call recording and insights directly from the inbox and calendar instead of a separate platform. The Groove+ mobile app helps remote and hybrid teams streamline meeting prep and follow-up, while making it easy to access Salesforce and key meeting insights while on the go.
