Nerds have done it again! For the fourth year in a row, Inc. Magazine named Nerds On Call to their annual Inc. 500|5000, which ranks the fastest-growing private companies in the United states. This list represents the companies which make up the backbone of America’s economy – the independent entrepreneurs, which represent the American spirit. We’re honored to join companies like Unified Payments, which tops this year’s list, as well as the online review site Yelp, yogurt maker Chobani, giftcards.com, and literally thousands more. However, we’re especially proud to be the only company based in our home city of Redding to make the list!

Our growth rate from 2007-2010 was 49%. Given the stagnant economic environment, many businesses are growing slowly, but the companies on the Inc. 500|5000 have managed to average a 97% growth rate.

“Now, more than ever, we depend on Inc. 500/5000 companies to spur innovation, provide jobs, and drive the economy forward. Growth companies, not large corporations, are where the action is,” says Inc. Editor Eric Schurenberg. Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including Nerds On Call company profile and an interactive database can be found at (http://www.inc.com/inc5000/profile/nerds-on-call).

Despite high unemployment rates around the nation, as well as managing to survive in an industry that has seen its fair share of companies drop off the face of the planet, Ryan Eldridge says that, “Nerds has succeeded where others have not because we have created new markets by listening to customers and expanding services to fit those needs.”

Since 2007, we’ve:

Began offering services tailored to businesses big and small. We can set up networks, troubleshoot office printers and computers – basically we can make sure your business never hiccups.

Fine-tuned the online support plan to offer unlimited tech support by phone and online for only $25/month. Have Nerds On Call whenever you need us! We can log into your computer as soon as you get the problem so you don’t even have to wait for us to come out.

Continued a customer referral program. If a customer tells a friend about Nerds On Call and that friend has Nerds On Call come out, the company gives the referring customer a $20 gift certificate and the new customer $20 off. You can use the gift certificate for any of our services – maybe you’ve been wanting to try the online service plan? 😉
