Clarity Named to Inc. 5000 List of Fastest-Growing Companies for Third Consecutive Year
August 25, 2014

Ranked no. 1079 with three-year sales growth of 414 percent

Madison, CT (August 25, 2014) – Clarity Software Solutions, Inc., a leading healthcare plan communications provider, was named to the 2014 Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies for the third consecutive year. The company received a ranking of 1079 with three-year sales growth of 414 percent. Clarity continues to demonstrate positive growth and shares this elite recognition with other industry leaders that gained early exposure on the list such as Yelp, LinkedIn and Zillow.

“It’s an honor to rank on the Inc. 5000 list for the third consecutive year,” said Sean Rotermund, President, Clarity Software Solutions, Inc. “Our continued recognition is a testament of our teams’ dedication, not only to Clarity, but to our clients. We could not be successful without our growing client base. We recognize that without them, success would not be possible and we plan to continue on this path, exceeding our goals in years to come.”

The average company on the list achieved an astonishing three-year growth of 516 percent. The aggregate revenue of those on the Inc. 5000 list is $211 billion and those same companies have generated 505,000 jobs over the past three years.

"What surprises me, even though I know it’s coming, is the sheer variety of the paths our entrepreneurs take to success, thematically reflecting how our economy has evolved,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “This year there are far more social media and far fewer computer hardware businesses than there were, say, six years ago. But what doesn’t change is the fearsome creativity unleashed by American entrepreneurship.”

Methodology
The 2014 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2010 to 2013. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2010. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent--not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies--as of December 31, 2013.

Clarity Featured in Forbes: Software Services Provider for Health Insurers Among Fastest-Growing Private Companies

Madison, CT (September 30, 2013) – None of Clarity Software Solutions' clients were surprised to find the company near the top of Inc. magazine's exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies for 2012. The expanding list of national and regional health insurance companies had already given Clarity a solid "thumbs up," with 100 percent saying they would recommend the document management and distribution services provider to others. A remarkable 2,813.4 percent growth rate over the past three years placed Clarity in the #107 spot on the Inc. 500|5000 (#4 in the Business Products and Services industry segment and #3 in Connecticut). In 2012 alone, the company added more than a dozen commercial, Medicare and Medicaid insurance companies of all sizes, bringing its clientele to over 80. In the same year, over 35 percent of existing clients extended their partnership with Clarity by adding new product solutions as their communication needs increased. Adding resources and staff, Clarity recently relocated to a new, state-of-the-art facility in Madison, Connecticut.

"Our growth is a testament to our ability to deliver on the promise of cutting-edge technology and world-class service," says Clarity President and CEO Sean Rotermund.

Rotermund founded Clarity in 2007 to fill a need for on-demand document management, composition and communications delivery to insurance providers. "Few industries are as communication-dependent as health insurance," he says. "We get that. We make it easy for health plans to create customized pre-sales materials and enrollment kits to drive participation and revenue. We greatly reduce the administrative burden of producing various post-sales documents such as ID cards, EOCs, SBCs, EOBs and more."

"It's been quite refreshing to work with a vendor that continues to be innovative with product/service offerings, while keeping up with all the industry standards and requirements. It's nice to know that we are just as important to your business after a few years as we were when we first came onboard!" –Clarity client

Clarity is valued by clients as a trusted partner. Its solutions eliminate the need to build and operate costly in-house systems by providing a single, hassle-free touchpoint for generating custom documents that ensure compliance with the still-fluid healthcare regulations. Equally important, Clarity's solutions allow for distribution of communications across all media – print, Web or mobile. "Our clients can tap into the value of using smartphones and tablets to improve both sales and customer service – a benefit younger policyholders increasingly expect," says Rotermund. "We constantly focus on industry trends like mobile applications and adapt to provide impactful solutions that create efficiencies and manage costs."

Onward and Upward; Clarity Headquarters Moves to Madison, Connecticut to Support Growth

Madison, CT. (July 8, 2013) Clarity Software Solutions, Inc. (Clarity), one of Connecticut’s fastest-growing technology companies, today announced it moved its corporate headquarters from Guilford, Connecticut to Madison, Connecticut to occupy new Class A office space at the eponymously named Clarity Commons. 

Clarity has entered into a multi-year lease agreement to occupy over 15,000 square feet in the new Clarity Commons campus. The company will move in one phase scheduled for June this year. "We're thrilled to move into the new space in Madison," said Sean Rotermund , President and CEO of Clarity. "The new environment is a reflection of our employee-focused culture at Clarity. The goal was to create an atmosphere that offers the benefits of a top-flight professional setting while encouraging the continued collaboration of a start-up with a work-from-home vibe."

The announcement follows a banner year for the profitable five-year-old company. Clarity grew its resources by over 50% in the past year to 60 employees and the added space in Clarity Commons will allow for plenty of additional growth. Last year, the company was in the national spotlight with its recognition by Inc. magazine which ranked Clarity Software Solutions No. 107 on its 31st annual Inc. 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.
 
"At 60 employees and growing, the timing couldn’t be better to move into our new facilities," Rotermund added.  "Clarity Commons provides us with a collaborative environment and ample space to house the creativity that has defined Clarity over the years. Clarity has been committed to the shoreline community of Connecticut since its inception and putting these roots down signifies our investment into our community for years to come.”

Many of Clarity’s charitable endeavors are focused on opportunities close to home. Through its service organization, Clarity for Charity, the company is serving many local initiatives, such as The Exchange Club of Madison which supports many causes, amongst them the prevention of child abuse. The location of Clarity’s new headquarters further strengthens its ties with local organizations.

“We are excited to be in our new location. The new facilities make it inspiring to come to work each day, knowing that we are continuing to grow and now have a home to support it,” said Rotermund. “Our employees, old and new, take pride in the stability we offer as an established company, infused with the atmosphere of a progressive start-up. We believe our new environment conveys that sentiment well.”

Clarity's SBC Solution Experiences Rapid Adoption

Madison, CT. (January 1, 2013) - During 2012, Clarity Software Solutions, Inc. (Clarity) announced a SBC solution in response to the Affordable Care Act requirement that mandates the creation of a uniform summary of benefits and coverage. Clarity is the cutting edge provider of on demand services supporting customized communications for the healthcare industry. Clarity earned this reputation through game-changing technology innovations and a relentless focus on customer service.

Under section 2715 of the Public Health Service Act, created by section 1001 of the Affordable Care Act and implemented in the new rules, health insurers and group health plans have to provide uniform information about health plan benefits and coverage through a Summary of Benefits and Coverage (“SBC”) and a list of definitions (called the “Uniform Glossary”) that explains terms commonly used in health insurance coverage such as “deductible” and “co-payment”.

Upon unveiling the new solution to the market place, Clarity was contracted to implement over a dozen simultaneous programs all requiring a go-live date of September 23, 2012. Clarity’s project management and technical departments were up to the task as each program successfully met the compliance requirements and date.  Achieving the complicated deliverable confirmed the true scalability of Clarity’s architecture based on configuring applications, rather than custom coding them for each client.

Clarity incorporates the uniform SBC template and integrates client’s system data to create the necessary plan specific designs required by pre and post-enrollees. The web application easily allows your health plan staff to create design changes on the fly to meet timely multichannel distribution requirements for sales, renewals, plan changes or on demand member requests.

"We have prided ourselves on being able to recognize market conditions, evaluate the needs of the industry and ensure we provide timely, future-focused solutions for our clients. The launch of our SBC solution underscores our commitment to those goals." said Sean Rotermund, CEO and President of Clarity. “The adoption of the SBC solution by both existing Clarity clients as well as new ones is exciting validation of Clarity helping health plans meet the challenges of health care reform.”

The Clarity Solution keeps health plans compliant and reduces the administrative burden of building systems internally and allows them to focus on the business of providing healthcare. Clarity's product offerings include: SBCs, ID cards, Integrated and Variable Kitted Products, Personalized Correspondence (EOBs, Letters, Statements), and Electronic Delivery of Communications (to web and mobile).
