STRONGSVILLE, Ohio--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Foundation Software, Inc., developer of FOUNDATION®, America’s #1 Construction Accounting Software, announced today its fifth consecutive Weatherhead 100 award. The honor recognizes Foundation as one of the fastest-growing companies in Northeast Ohio for the tenth time in the award’s history.
“The industry has matured. A lot of our competitors have merged, and we’re one of a few still thriving. But I know that it’s hiring the best and brightest and creating a culture and an environment they can flourish in that’s made us successful as a company.”
In the four years measured by the recent award, Foundation has increased its revenue share from its cloud software, FOUNDATION SaaS™, and mobile applications but remains focused principally on its flagship construction accounting software, FOUNDATION®.
“Bottom-line, it comes down to our employees,” said CEO/chairman Fred Ode. “The industry has matured. A lot of our competitors have merged, and we’re one of a few still thriving. But I know that it’s hiring the best and brightest and creating a culture and an environment they can flourish in that’s made us successful as a company.”
In addition to its evolving product line, Ode points out, Foundation continues to support clients who are still active on the MS-DOS version of their software from more than two decades ago. “We have around 5,500 active clients today. Of those, over 20 are still using DOS. By remaining committed to our clients, I think it comes back around to us. That’s what we’ve seen. Do what’s right for your clients, and it comes back to you.”
Based out of Case Western Reserve University’s Weatherhead School of Management, the Weatherhead 100 recognizes Northeast Ohio-based companies with outstanding sales growth over four years. Foundation was honored at a black-tie event on December 1 at the Hilton Downtown Cleveland.
