Clearent Lands on Inc. 5000 List for Third Straight Year

New Payments API Positions Clearent for Future Growth.

Clayton, MO, August 30, 2014 --( Today Clearent announced that it came in at #975 on this year’s Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing private companies. This marks Clearent’s third consecutive year on the list and was made possible thanks to its 460% growth rate between 2010 and 2013.

In an industry where credit card processing companies struggle for differentiation, Clearent has made a name for itself with its proprietary back-end processing platform and best-in-class service.

Clearent, one of the fastest growing credit card processing companies, came in at #12 on the Inc. 5000 list of top Missouri companies and came in at #2 on the St. Louis Business Journal’s list fastest growing companies. Clearent has experienced tremendous organic growth over the past six years, and has maintained rapid growth during 2014.

Clearent recently expanded its service offering with the addition of a payment gateway and API, both of which were launched earlier this year. Unlike gateways and APIs available through legacy processors and specialty payments providers, Clearent offers an integrated payments platform that links front and back-end processing capabilities into a service that helps software developers seamlessly integrate payments and get to market sooner.

“Being named to the Inc. 5000 list again this year is such an honor,” said Dan Geraty, CEO of Clearent. “I’m extremely proud of our team’s accomplishments to date, and even more excited about the huge potential with integrated payments and how that can position us for future success.”
