Simpplr named a Fast-Growing Private Company in America on the Inc. 5000 List

Simpplr ranks in the top 20% on the 2020 Inc. 5000 List

REDWOOD SHORES, CA — August  13, 2020: Simpplr, an employee communication and engagement platform that markets itself as today’s modern intranet, today announced that the company placed 826 on the 2020 Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America.

Simpplr’s technology is built to help distributed organizations connect and align their workforces and equip employees with information across multiple locations. By creating a more engaged and connected digital workplace, businesses are able to connect, engage, and drive culture across their entire workforce. 

“We are honored to be named as a fast-growing private company especially during this time of uncertainty in 2020,” said Dhiraj Sharma, CEO and Co-Founder, Simpplr. “It has been a busy time for Simpplr as companies transition to work from home and realize the need for a virtual headquarters. Not only has Simpplr had triple digit growth but we’ve also grown the company to support the demand for better company communications.” 

COVID-19’s abrupt transition to remote work has amplified the need for modern intranets. Companies are realizing their “2020 Communications Tech Stack” needs to include a noise-free source-of-truth for formal communications and an easy way to find information within the organization’s digital workplace. 

Simpplr recreated the corporate intranet with a stunning, consumer-grade user experience and AI-backed technology that personalizes experiences and prevents the intranet from becoming a dumping ground.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 come from nearly every realm of business,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “From health and software to media and hospitality, the 2020 list proves that no matter the sector, incredible growth is based on the foundations of tenacity and opportunism.”
