GAINESVILLE, Fla., June 17, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SharpSpring, Inc. (NASDAQ:SHSP), a global provider of cloud-based marketing technologies, achieved a record number of 4,000 businesses currently using its flagship marketing automation platform, surpassing its previous milestone of 3,000 businesses achieved in early 2016.

Our agency partners recognize the value of our solution in addressing their clients’ digital marketing needs. We feel strongly that our rapid acceptance in the market has created greater awareness for SharpSpring, which will put us in a stronger position to expand our market reach and accelerate our growth in the months and years ahead.”
