18 Million Businesses in the U.S.

    As we look forward to introducing more new customers to ShoreTel, it is interesting to know there are over 18 million businesses in the U.S.

    When you look at the biggest businesses out there – there are over 4,500 companies that have over 5,000 employees. Needless to say, the Fortune 1000 companies are in this category.

    Stepping down to businesses that are a little smaller in size (but still large by any means), there are over 15,000 companies that have 1,000-5,000 employees. In the “mid” category, which I define in this blog post as between 100-999 employees – there are a whopping 139,000 companies out there!

    And to keep things simple, the rest would comprise the bulk of the 18 million active businesses in the U.S.

    While we have been steadily growing our customer base over the years, it is interesting to know that we have merely scratched the surface in terms of our potential based on the possible opportunities that are out there, waiting to embrace the Brilliantly Simple mantra.
