“We’ve added a number of people, mostly here,” Brandon Bruce of Cirruspath told us recently.
In fact, the growth of the bi-coastal company – offices in Maryville and California – has caused it to start looking for expanded space locally to handle new hires.
Bruce, a Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer, said two-thirds of the company’s employees are in the eastern division in Maryville.
We first profiled Cirruspath, founded by college classmates, two years ago and have continued to follow its progress. Its main product is Cirrus Insight.
“There are a number of different factors that have driven our growth,” Bruce explained. The key one is brand equity that has been built-up over the past several years coupled with increasing interest in Salesforce and the company’s responsiveness to customer needs.
“We’re seeing Salesforce adopted by a number of companies,” he explained. “Our goal is to serve business owners in their email inbox, whatever it is.”
The agnostic approach to email is new for Cirruspath. When the company was founded, its focus was on providing Gmail users with the same integration of email with Salesforce that was more readily available for Microsoft Outlook users.
Cirruspath recently launched an app for the iPhone, will roll out one for the iPad soon, and has plans for an Android app in the future.
While the company’s growth has been across all size of customers, Bruce there’s been a good deal of growth in the small to medium size businesses. Recently, Cirruspath signed agreements with two Fortune 100 companies.
“It’s an exciting time,” Bruce says.
