Pop Quiz: What have we been waiting for since July? Don’t remember? The announcement of winners from GrowFL for the Florida Companies to Watch. And guess what?… We won!
There are 50 winners, selected from over 500 nominees, and the economic impact of these second-stage companies is impressive: $421 Million in total annual revenue in 2015, 29 percent increase in total annual revenue compared to 2014, 2,171 full-time equivalent employees, 30 percent increase in 2015 total employment compared to 2014 and 719 net new jobs projected for 2016.
“This is a strong group of companies that deserve this special recognition given annually to the state’s top second-stage companies,” said Dr. Tom O’Neal, executive director of the Florida Economic Gardening Institute and associate vice president for the University of Central Florida’s Office of Research and Commercialization. Dr. O’Neal also said, “These stand-out companies are all led by entrepreneurs, and have demonstrated their capacity and intent to grow.”
"X-Link and the Easy Business Software team are grateful to receive the Florida Companies to Watch Award" says Gary Gorsline, CEO of Easy Business Software. "We are thrilled to be among the ranks of companies to receive this prestigious recognition."

X-Link Medical Software Interfacing is Easy Business Software's flagship product. The X-Link interface prevents double entry of patient data and charge information in medical office software. By pre-populating clinical and other systems with appointment and demographic data, this interoperability solution vastly improves office productivity. Other key end-user benefits include reducing errors and data inconsistencies, and improving billing turnaround by feeding completed patient encounter information, including charge captures, directly into the billing cycle.
The winners will be recognized at the celebration of Florida’s Rock Star Entrepreneurs on November 3, 2016 at Hard Rock Live, Universal CityWalk in Orlando. The celebration will include dinner, dessert, music and networking. We are very excited to be able to attend.
