Clearent Earns 5th Straight Year on Inc. 5000 List

Unique Approach to Market & Proprietary Platform Drives Processor’s Growth

Clayton, MO, August 21, 2016 --( Today Clearent announced its latest ranking on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing private companies. This marks the company’s fifth straight appearance on the well-known list. Driven by an impressive organic growth rate of 240% between 2012 and 2015, Clearent continues to deliver industry-leading products and services and first-class support to help its sales teams and partners grow faster and boost their bottom line.

Clearent strives to be the best credit card processor by having an unwavering focus on honesty and transparency. The company’s service-oriented, Midwestern culture and proprietary processing platform give it a unique edge in a hyper-competitive market. Clearent is a processor, gateway, and acquirer – all in one. This gives Clearent more flexibility to deliver products that truly help its sales teams and partners stand out from the competition and sign more deals. It also helps the company deliver flexible pricing options, accurate, on-time residuals, and a suite of graphical portfolio management tools that are updated daily.

Clearent’s Next Day Funding service is also unique because of its 11:00 p.m. Eastern cut-off time, which is one of the latest in the industry.

We have a great team and great sales partners who have helped drive our success over the past decade. If it weren’t for their hard work, dedication, and support we wouldn’t be where we’re at today.”
