MADISON, Wis., July 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Sonic Foundry(R) Inc. (NASDAQ:SOFO) , a leader in automated rich media communications technology, today announced that Ziff Davis Media’s Baseline magazine named the company the sixth fastest-growing software company among publicly-traded U.S. software businesses with sales less than $150 million.

“Our calculations of percentage revenue growth in the slide show are based on a comparison of each company’s revenue in its most recently reported full fiscal year, versus the previous year,” writes Robert Hertzberg. “The small software companies that look healthiest — with sales approaching or exceeding $100 million — have carved out niches for themselves in areas like automating corporate travel or helping with corporate marketing.”

Now with the online video market starting to blossom, we are expanding our offerings with technologies and managed services that promise to penetrate the enterprise further and fuel additional business expansion.”
