FISHERS, Ind. - Bluebridge , provider of a mobile app communication platform that empowers organizations to engage and connect with their audience, today released the details of its most successful year since being founded in 2011.

This success follows a phenomenal 2013 year which saw Bluebridge grow from a fourperson
company with six customers, to 12 employees and over 100 customers.
The substantial growth of the company in its first few years has led to the need for expanded

under construction in early April 2015 from its current space in the Forum Credit Union
building within Exit Five Corporate Park, also in Fishers.

revolution. Organizations are just now making investments into mobile apps and we're thrilled to be positioned as a leading provider in the markets we address."
