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.”
