Passport recognized as the fastest growing software company in Charlotte on Inc. 5000 list

Transportation software company receives third consecutive recognition on the Inc. 5000 list and reports 457.5% revenue growth over a three-year period

Charlotte, N.C. (Aug. 12, 2020) Today, Inc. magazine announces the ranking of America’s fastest-growing companies in its 39th annual Inc. 5000 list, which recognizes privately-held companies based on percentage revenue growth over a three-year period. Passport is the fastest growing software company in Charlotte, marking the company’s third consecutive year on the list.

The significant year-over-year growth of 457.5% from 2016 to 2019 is a clear demonstration of the company’s dedication to building strong client relationships and transformative technology. In that same time period, the company expanded its footprint in over 1,200 cities and processed over $1.9B in mobility payments.

Passport CEO, Bob Youakim celebrates this recognition despite the challenges the pandemic has brought this current year. “We are ranked among some of the most prestigious and innovative companies in the world and it is an honor to be included on this list,” he says. “This growth further cements our mission to provide cities with the technology needed to foster more livable and equitable communities– especially as we enter a post-pandemic world.”

Earlier this year, Passport announced the opening of its APIs to allow third party-providers to natively integrate parking payments into their systems and to increase the number of options to pay for parking, including mobile pay parking. This milestone allows cities to power their entire parking app ecosystems, helping to create more livable and equitable communities.
