Worcester, United Kingdom, December 11, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Hallow-based software company Postcode Anywhere
is among the fastest-growing technology companies in the world, according to a recent ranking by consultancy firm Deloitte.
Postcode Anywhere grew 500% from 2005 to 2009, assuring its place for the second year in a row among 500 of the strongest-performing technology firms across Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
Managing director Guy Mucklow said: “As all of our growth has been organic and funded from internal resources, it’s great to be recognised not only as a top-performing company locally, but on a global scale as well.
“In a recession it’s even more vital that technology companies, who often have the best tools for growth, make use of their abilities.
“With the launch of several new products this year – including Route Optimiser
, an AA-endorsed service that plans shorter routes for commercial vehicles – we’ve pushed hard for progress.”
Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA 2009 is a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology companies across the whole of Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Rankings are based on percentage revenue growth over five years.
David Halstead, partner in charge of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 EMEA programme, said: “Attracting enough customers to attain such fast growth over five years makes a strong statement about the quality of a company’s product and its leadership.
“Making this ranking is a testament to a company’s commitment to technology. With its 500% growth rate over five years, Postcode Anywhere has proven that its leadership has the vision and determination to grow in difficult conditions.
“Postcode Anywhere has shown the right stuff for growth.”
