Announced today, the Q2-2017 Edition of the Cardin Partners 'SaaS Quick 25' list includes a wide range of emerging growth Enterprise SaaS companies, representing both vertical and geographic diversity.
Cardin systematically tracks the growth of over 25,000 SaaS companies, globally. We publish a limited subset of companies and data publicly as part of our SaaS10k list.
In conjunction with this, we also publish a quarterly report of the fastest growing identifiable SaaS sectors.
As a reminder, the criteria to be considered 'emerging growth' are as follows:
Companies must end the quarter with a headcount between 20 and 100 employees;
Must have been in our database since at least the prior quarter.
HIGHLIGHTS AND TRENDS
Several companies this quarter are representative of broader industry trends:
Zudy, a low-code (they prefer 'zero code') mobile app dev platform, exemplifies the move away from the encumbrance of having to hire hoards of C# developers for iOS development when rapid time to market and feature iteration are paramount.
ReFUEL4, which is riding the winds of the AI trend, is using machine learning to identify opportunities to help agencies and in-house teams optimize the content of their creatives for maximum conversion. Continuing the AI trend, we have Loom Systems, which applies AI to log analytics in the APM and DevOps domain.
RegTech is also hot. SOXHUB provides document management and compliance to F500 companies, Nimonik serves the EHS space with their quality compliance suite, and MetaCompliance is service GDPR compliance.
In the eLearning space, our Vancouver, BC-based neighbors Thinkific are on a tear. Their platform includes marketplace and ecommerce enablement, allowing anyone with monetizable courseware to be up and running in minutes.
