Q. What is your definition of the midmarket?  How can I decide if this site is right for me?

A. If your company is too big to be small and too small to be big, you are a midmarket company.  There are several definitions - by revenues ($10 million-$1 billion) or by employees (50-5,000).  However, if you find that your company neither fits in the small or large category, you belong here.  For many small companies, the issues they face are similar to those faced by midsized companies.  If you believe you have challenges and needs of a midsize company, you are in the midmarket!
