Higher Ed Growth makes Inc. 5000

Higher Ed Growth (HEG) recently ranked No. 3065 on Inc. magazine’s 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This marks the company’s third consecutive year on the exclusive Inc. 5000 list.

HEG has seen its three-year growth rate increase 111 percent. The company credits the launch of innovative, new edu contact center technology and higher education marketing services for its staggering growth rate during this short time period.

“As the higher ed industry has shifted in response to new regulations and growing end-user needs, we have been able to stay in front of it all by working closely with our partners and creating turnkey solutions to new obstacles like compliance,” said Frank Healy, president and CEO of HEG. “We’re honored to be recognized once again by Inc for HEG’s growth, which is a direct result of our team’s endless dedication to our clients and ability to produce outstanding results throughout a changing climate.”

HEG’s latest technology product, EduMaximizer, answers a growing need for transparency in higher education marketing. With data collection, agent scripting, TCPA compliant features, search results, and more, the all-in-one tool streamlines recruitment and simplifies day-to-day operations for contact centers. The platform was designed specifically to drive better outcomes for students, schools and lead generation partners.

“It takes a new approach to meet the aggressive goals of the higher ed sector, and our technology – and team – continues to lead the way, making better outcomes attainable and easy,” added Healy. “The industry might be changing, but we’re able to move just as fast.”

The 2016 Inc. 5000, unveiled online at Inc.com and with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. (available on newsstands August 23), is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved a three-year growth of 433 percent. 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 percent of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period.
