One Call Now, the Nation’s Largest and Fastest Growing Notification Service Provider, Serving 55 Million Americans, reports another record year of growth in 2012.

Once again the company made Inc. magazine’s “Inc5000,” honoring the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. As a five-time honoree, One Call Now was added to Inc.’s “Honor Roll,” a distinction few companies can claim. One Call Now was also added to Inc’s “Top 100 Telecommunications Companies” and “Top 100 Ohio Companies” for 2012. The recognition is only the latest in a long string of accomplishments, capping off a record year of 20%+ growth and profitability for One Call Now.

The Numbers
One Call Now added over 6,000 clients in 2012. Its bookings of approximately $14M reflect a year-over-year new sales increase of 29%. The message notification provider’s operating income is up 66% from 2011. This follows a ten-year unbroken trend of 20%+ increases over the prior year in both revenue and operating income. New clients include a national leader in property management with over 38,000 apartment homes across the United States. Additionally, One Call Now also garnered a partnership with leading software and technology services provider SunGard K-12 Education. School districts that use SunGard’s solutions will now be able to keep parents informed and communicate quickly in emergency situations. Customer satisfaction continues to be One Call Now’s strength as evidenced by a 97% renewal rate in 2012. The company now serves the largest client base for any notification company in North America. Last year, One Call Now sent over 250 million messages to protect, inform and engage more than 55 million Americans.

The Rewards
District Administration magazine named One Call Now’s school notification services one of its “Top 100 Products for 2012.” Winners are chosen by the quality and quantity of client submissions. Additionally, The Dayton Business Journal recently named One Call Now the #2 telecommunications company in the Dayton area. One Call Now’s continued growth has required physical growth, as well. The company’s employee headcount grew 30% over 2011. One Call Now employees enjoy the benefits of 100% company-paid healthcare, a pet-friendly workplace and onsite MBA classes. As a product of its concern for employees’ health and well-being, One Call Now is one of the Dayton Business Journal’s Healthiest Workplaces for the region.

The Reason
Continuing the tradition of community support and philanthropy, One Call Now gave away $250,000 in paid-employee community service time, donated school levy calls, and funding of local and national charities. In addition, One Call Now supports Kids Read Now, a national summer reading program designed to help educators reduce or eliminate the summer slide in reading scores for elementary students. Kids Read Now experienced an exciting second year with 72 percent of students and parents at participating schools taking part in the program. Based on the President’s drive for third grade reading readiness, One Call Now made a $1 million commitment to developing this program. Kids Read Now distributed tens of thousands of free books to early elementary school students in its first two years, and published groundbreaking statistical studies on summer reading effectiveness.
