That’s because Transportation Impact, a back-to-back Inc. 5000 company, is ushering in what it says is the most comprehensive small-package optimization, reporting and refund recovery platform in the world. TI’s solution is nonintrusive, invoice-based and secures refunds on behalf of customers automatically.

“Since we opened our doors in 2008, we’ve been listening intently to the needs of our customers,” says Keith Byrd, co-founder. “Shippers want an audit that will do more than simply secure credits for packages that didn’t meet service guarantees.

Double Strength: A Global Media Content and Public Relations Leader

De Valle would know. His company serves high-profile clients all over the world, creating their content, making their media buys, developing and running their public relations programs.

Syntegrity Unifies Identity Protection and
Digital Security to Defend Global 2000 Enterprises

The history of digital business will doubtless include thought leaders Daniel Coffing, Nathanael Coffing and Lukasz Radosz, founders of Syntegrity, among the digital security pioneers.

Before online merchant eBay became a household word or Amazon realized its first annual profit, the Coffings had already predicted the evolution of high- scale online business and were helping their clients deploy security measures to protect sellers and purchasers. Their early warnings proved prescient. They founded Syntegrity in 2003, and their innovative solutions made it the preferred identity and security partner for major players in the Web-based economy. The company’s 605 percent growth over three years placed it on the 2014 Inc. 5000 list as the 12th fastest-growing privately owned security company in North America.
