SavvyCard, a St. Pete tech company that helps business professionals develop sales leads, has struck a new deal with CoreLogic, a property data and analytics company. CoreLogic will provide SavvyCard to subscribers of California Regional Multiple Listing Service (CRMLS), the nation’s largest MLS, a news release said.
SavvyCard makes it easy for real estate agents to share their contact information and real estate listings online through the major social media networks and other digital channels.
“Social media is an incredible source of buyer leads and SavvyCard does a great job leveraging that potential,” said Art Carter, CEO of CRMLS.
SavvyCard was already a member of the CoreLogic Alliance Network, which has given the company visibility beyond Florida, said David Etheredge, CEO.
Two local cybersecurity firms, KnowBe4 in Clearwater and ReliaQuest in Tampa, made the 2018 Deloitte Technology Fast 500, a ranking of the fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America.
KnowBe4 ranked No. 34 on the list, with 3,726 percent revenue growth from 2014 to 2017.
“Our revenue growth has been up for 22 consecutive quarters, and we attribute that success to our best-in-class new-school security awareness training and simulated phishing platform along with the increasing realization that people are the weakest link in organizational security,” said Stu Sjouwerman, CEO of KnowBe4.
ReliaQuest was No. 214 on the list, with 451 percent revenue growth in that same period.
Brian Murphy, CEO of ReliaQuest, credited a strong culture and hardworking employees for the company’s triple-digit growth.
The fastest growing company on the list is SwanLeap, a Madison, Wisc.-based software firm, which grew revenue 77,260 percent in three years.
