Mayor Rahm Emmanuel paid a visit to the SMS Assist headquarters in late June, a company he learned about over five years ago. At that point, the office staffed less than 50 employees.
Much to his surprise, the technology company’s headquarters has expanded to three floors of the iconic John Hancock Center and is chock full of over 500 bustling workers, many of whom have started careers at SMS Assist within the last 12 months.
SMS Assist’s technology platform helps companies manage their properties, which in turn, enables them to provide a better experience for their customers, while also helping them cut costs and receive high quality service.
175 employees were hired in the last year at SMS Assist to keep up with its growth and expanding service offerings. The company has tripled in size in the last year and that is what caught Mayor Emanuel’s attention.
