Lindon, UT — October 10, 2017 — foreUP Golf Software today announced it was named to the 2017 Utah 100, MountainWest Capital Network (MWCN)’s annual list of the fastest-growing companies in Utah. foreUP was awarded as an Emerging Elite company, and was honored at the 23rd annual Utah 100 Awards program, held at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City.
When the company started in 2012 as a cloud-based tee sheet for golf courses, they introduced a new level of innovation to an industry previously dominated by pen and paper or server-based systems. foreUP’s cloud-based suite now offers all the software tools a course needs into one central point of sale platform, accessible from any device, wherever they are.
“In a sea of technology companies, I feel strongly that our customer-focused mission is what powers our growth and sets us apart,” says Joel Ragar, foreUP co-founder and CEO. "Every addition or improvement we make to our platform is inspired by real-life issues experienced by our customers. The drive to provide them with the tools, and the service, they need to succeed is what has propelled foreUP to where it is today.”
Recipients of the Utah 100 were chosen by the percentage of revenue increase of each company between 2013 and 2017.
“We congratulate all of this year’s Utah 100 companies for building outstanding businesses and making strong contributions to Utah’s economy,” said Reed Chase, chairman of the MWCN Utah 100 committee. “These companies further advance Utah’s standing as an excellent place to do business.”
