VinSolutions makes Inc. 500 as the 33rd fastest growing software company with three-year revenue growth of 672%

Overland Park, KS Aug. 27 Inc. Magazine ranked VinSolutions as the 33rd
fastest growing software company in the US on its prestigious Inc. 500 list, an
exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. VinSolutions
grew by 672% in the three year period and was ranked #447 overall. The list
represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the
economy - America's entrepreneurs.
As an Inc. 5000
honoree, VinSolutions shares a prestigious pedigree with such notable alumni as
Microsoft, Intuit, Zappos, Under Armor, Jamba Juice, Timberland, Visa, Cliff
Bar, Patagonia, Oracle, and scores of other powerhouses
. Other Automotive technology companies that
were recognized on the Inc 5000 list were vAuto at #125 with 2044% growth,
at #1056 with 286% growth and Dealer Socket at #1829 with 150% growth.

"The leaders of the companies on this year's Inc. 5000 have figured out how to grow their businesses during the longest recession since the Great Depression," said
Inc. president Bob LaPointe.
“This year’s list is a testament to the creativity, resilience, and
tenacity of America’s top entrepreneurs,” said Jane Berentson, Editor of Inc.

We are honored to make the Inc 500 list and we are proud of our dealers who have fought through these difficult times by using state of the art technology to improve their business," said Mike Dullea, CEO of VinSolutions. “I
am glad there were so many automotive companies on the list and I am proud of
our employees who work so hard around the clock to serve our customers.”

VinSolutions dealership marketing system contributed to over 2.8 billion dollars in automotive sales and helped their dealer partners save an estimated $33 million in expenses
during a difficult 2009.
VinSolutions dealership marketing system
integrates all of the tools a dealership needs to run their business and their
system makes it easier for consumers to shop, buy and maintain their vehicle on
the internet or through their mobile phone. “I was spending too much with 15 different companies that
did not integrate and now I pay 75% less for one system that does it all and
more,” said Todd Crossley, owner of #1 retailer in Kansas City.
“VinSolutions has revolutionized the automotive market the way
Apple revolutionized the consumer market - by creating a completely integrated
system that is easy to use and that helps me manage my business from my iPhone.”

Despite the fact that most of this year's measuring period of 2006-2009 took place during the latest recession, aggregate revenue among the companies on the list actually increased to $321.6 billion,
up more than 50 percent from last year. The effects of the recession are seen,
however, in the median three-year growth rate, which dropped to 96 percent from
last year's 126 percent. This year's Inc. 5000 employ a record 1.4 million
people, up from one million on last year's list. With unemployment remaining
stubbornly high, policymakers and business leaders will do well to look to the
Inc. 5000 companies for fresh ideas on achieving growth and creating jobs.
