Today Riptide Software has a celebration of 17 years in business. Our wonderful company has evolved from a small software development start-up of just several employees into a leading provider of innovative software solutions with over 100 employees.
“We started out 17 years ago with a small team in a garage and have grown into a business far exceeding expectations,” said Phillip Loeffel, Riptide Software founder, President and CEO. “We are very proud of our accomplishment and grateful to our customers and employees who helped us achieve this success.” Founded in 1995 by entrepreneurs Loeffel and Barry Clinger, Executive VP and CTO, both men had an extensive background in computer science and information technology. Together, our combined depth of experience and dedication helped gain the early recognition of clients. “This experience, along with a constant eye on customer needs, and the hard work and dedication of our employees has led to our rapid growth and success.” Loeffel pointed out.
To back up Loeffel’s statements, Riptide has received numerous awards and recognitions. Recent accolades include Lockheed Martin’s Small Business of the Year, and Military Training Technology’s Top 100 Modeling and Simulation software companies and numerous product awards in mobile, cloud, and SaaS implementations using Salesforce. Although it’s been more than a decade since Riptide was recognized by Deloitte & Touche as one of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in North America, Riptide continues to provide the leading edge of technology to all of our clients.
