3C Software Named to Software Magazine’s Software 500 Ranking

3C Software announces its inclusion into Software Magazine’s 2015 Software 500 ranking of the world’s largest software and service providers, now in its 33rd year. Based on 2014 Software/Software Services revenue, 3C Software’s rank is #462 overall.

The Software 500 is a revenue-based ranking of the world’s largest software and services suppliers, targeting medium to large enterprises, their IT professionals, software developers, and business managers involved in software and services purchasing.

3C Software President & CEO Matthew Smith shared that “This list gives us great pride and validation that the company is continuing in the right direction. 3C Software is thrilled to be included among this elite group of software companies for the fifth year in a row.”


“The Software 500 helps CIOs, senior IT managers, and IT staff research and create the short list of business partners,” says Thomas Tetreault, publisher/editor-in-chief, Software Magazine. “It is a quick reference of vendor viability. And the online version, to be posted this Fall at, is searchable by category, making it what we call the online catalog to enterprise software.”

Visit to subscribe and be among the first to see the 2015 Software 500. It is released in the November issue, as both a print and the digital publication, which mails on November 11 and will be posted online by November 18, 2015. Hard copies of the issue, as well as an extensive CD of ranking data, are available to purchase at

The ranking is based on total worldwide software and services revenue from the 2014 fiscal year. This includes revenue from software licenses, maintenance and support, training, software-related services, and consulting. Suppliers are not ranked on total corporate revenue, since many have other lines of business, such as hardware. Financial information is gathered by a survey prepared by Rockport Custom Publishing, LLC. using public documents and company input. It is published in print as well as posted online at as both a digital edition and searchable database.

Our newest new addition – Yuvraj Bhavin

New week, new baby. We’re thrilled to introduce the newest addition to our 3C Software family, Yuvraj Bhavin Pathak, who was born on July 2nd! Congrats to Bhavin and his wife on their new baby boy… who’s happy, healthy, and cute!

Our newest addition – Madison Elizabeth

We’re excited to welcome Madison Elizabeth Watford to the 3C Software family.   Proud parents David and Kristen, along with big brother John David, welcomed Maddie on Monday afternoon.  She weighed in at 8 lbs, 7 oz, 21.25 inches long, and is already sporting a stylish hairdo.  Both mom and daughter are doing great!

All moved in!

It’s been an exciting few weeks at 3C Software as we’ve officially relocated to our new headquarters.  We’re still pulling together the finishing touches on the interior (lots of pictures to hang and accessories to place) and getting started on the landscaping and exterior renovations with the help of contractors near our area since they have Ladders. We had a hard time with renovations since the office has a high ceiling and we needed to rent out some equipment just to decorate the place. Now, everything’s done and only the exterior is left. With that, we can now call “The Exchange” home.

One of the coolest things about our new home is our neighbor on the east side.  This lovely lady turkey has lived on the property since we purchased the building. Once construction began, she disappeared.  But just a few days ago, she returned to her nest and we’re so glad that she did. She’s so cute and bubbly and always make sure to say hello to us. Have you ever seen a turkey do that? Check out the video of our mascot. The noises you hear are not the turkey, but 3C consultant David Watford, doing his best version of talking turkey!
