Hayes Software Systems Named an Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Privately Held Company for the Fourth Time

August 22, 2018 — Hayes Software Systems, the leading inventory control software company for school districts, is proud to announce that Inc. magazine has named Hayes to its 37th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within America’s independent businesses.

This marks the fourth time Hayes has appeared on the Inc. 5000 list. Of the thousands of companies that are considered for the Inc. 5000, only a fraction appears on the list more than once and only one in six have made the list four times.


“To be included on the Inc. 5000 list for the fourth time is an incredible honor,” said Matt Winebright, CEO and President of Hayes. “It’s been our privilege for the past 28 years to help schools efficiently manage their inventory. For a company of our age to have such consistently strong growth is a testament to our customer-focused approach. The reality is that the larger we grow, the more schools we can positively impact. This milestone is a testament to this team’s unwavering passion to ensure children have the learning materials needed to be successful.”

Hayes’s growth over the three-year period was further buoyed through an acquisition by private equity firm, Transition Capital Partners (TCP) in early 2017. TCP leadership has provided strategic direction crucial to Hayes’s innovation in the industry. Hayes continues to invest in the best possible solutions while maintaining an unwavering commitment to customers.
