Maximizer Software Inc. (TSX: MAX), a leading provider of affordable, easy-to-use customer relationship management (CRM) software applications, today announced its inclusion in Software Magazine's Software 500 ranking of the world's largest software and service providers, now in its 25th year.
"We are honored that Maximizer Software has received the Software 500 award its fifth consecutive year," said John Caputo, President, Maximizer Software Inc. "With more than one million licenses sold, we have held a leadership position with CRM for small to medium-sized businesses. We will continue to provide fast, easy-to-use, and flexible solutions to enrich customer experiences for this growing segment."
The Software 500 is a revenue-based ranking of the world's largest software and services suppliers targeting IT professionals, software developers and business managers involved in software and services purchasing.
"The 2007 Software 500 results show that growth in the software and services industry was healthy from 2006 to 2007, the ranking year," says John P. Desmond, editor of Software Magazine and Softwaremag.com. "The Software 500 helps CIOs, senior IT managers and IT staff research and create the short list of business partners. It is a quick reference of vendor viability."
The ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue for 2006. This includes revenues from software licenses, maintenance and support, training and software-related services and consulting. Suppliers are not ranked on their total corporate revenue, since many have other lines of business, such as hardware. The financial information was gathered by a survey prepared by King Content Co., as well as from public documents.
