Microsoft, Dell, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
The recognition comes off the heels of Everyware's Series A funding round, as well as its selection by ETA as one of Payments' NexTen's most effective startups in the payment industry.
"Growth like this is exhilarating and only comes when you're bringing something to the market that's filling a large and growing need. Using the Everyware solution, including pay-by-text, businesses are getting paid faster and more reliably, while consumers get to make secure payments using the device they carry throughout each day," said Larry Talley, Everyware CEO and Founder. "We are excited to see our platform being adopted at an incredibly high rate, and we are honored to be ranked so highly among other respected, high-growth companies in the Inc. 5000."
Everyware is solving problems for the payment industry by combining text communication with payments. The company offers a full array of payment capture capabilities, including the faster and more convenient way for merchants to collect payments utilizing its Pay-By-Text solution. For consumers, this means being able to securely make a payment on their phone without talking to anyone, while also allowing them to text back any questions to help drive the adoption of frictionless payments.
"The companies on this year's Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success," says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. "There's no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities."
Everyware is a conversational payment gateway that sends automated text receipts after every purchase to authorize and validate payments to prevent fraud. Sending a simple text receipt after every purchase will create a tether between you and the customer allowing them to text back when it's convenient for them. Opening this two-way communication with customers will help mitigate risk, improve customer service, and increase revenue. From merchant processing to sending simple text receipts, making text communication a part of the purchase process will improve the customer journey.
