BHI Advanced Internet, an industry leader in providing Internet security and Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance services, has been ranked No. 31 by the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal in its annual Fast 50 list. The list showcases the top 50 fastest-growing, companies from 2007 to 2009 in Minnesota. Primarily driven by a strong company vision that empowers employee accomplishments and promotes the development of innovative products, BHI’s ranking stems from the dramatic growth of its flagship service, SecureConnect.
“The dedication and effort our employees put forth everyday has been crucial to BHI’s success as a leader in Internet security and PCI compliance solutions,” said Dave Perrill, President of BHI Advanced Internet. “We are honored to be recognized on the Fast 50 during a time when many businesses are experiencing a decline in growth and revenue.”
It is the company’s ‘will to win’ that inspires employees, increases productivity and creates a winning work environment.
In fact, BHI Advanced Internet was named one of the Top Workplaces in the Twin Cities metro area by the Star Tribune, earlier this year. The list, on which BHI SecureConnect debuted as 36th among small businesses, showcases the most progressive companies in the metro based on employee opinions about company leadership, career opportunities, workplace flexibility, compensation and benefits. This added recognition on the Fast 50 is another testament to BHI’s continued success as an organization.
Despite the unforgiving economic recession, BHI is one of few companies that has been able to consistently put forth significant growth each of the past three years. From 2006 to 2009, the company has seen a 100% sales growth rate, primarily driven by the adoption of SecureConnect among brands such as Dairy Queen, Mr. Goodcents, Taco John’s and Mellow Mushroom.
Because of its expansive growth, BHI was also awarded a place on the coveted Inc. 5000 list complied by Inc. Magazine. The company, which ranked No. 2431, was chosen as one of the 5000 fastest-growing private companies in America.
“I am confident that BHI’s growth will continue with our innovative technology, outstanding staff, and our organization’s drive to succeed.” said Perrill.
At the core of BHI’s accomplishments, the SecureConnect solution provides merchants with everything needed to achieve and maintain PCI compliance and network security. New services, such as the $100,000 Breach Protection Program and increasing non-compliance penalties are prompting merchants to take action.
“Most of the vendors could only provide some of the services I needed,” said Val Woods, a Taco John’s franchisee. “What attracted me to BHI SecureConnect was that they could take care of everything.” It is this commitment to service that has established BHI as an industry leader and clinched its place on the Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal’s Fast 50.
