Eptica Ranked Amongst Fastest Growing Technology Companies on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA 2008
Eptica today announced that it has once again been placed on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA 2008, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in EMEA. Rankings are based on percentage revenue growth over five years.
This is Eptica's second consecutive appearance in the Fast 500 and shows Eptica as one of only two software companies in the Multichannel and Online Customer Interaction category. Eptica is regarded as demonstrating continuous growth and European dimension, growing by more than 440 percent during this period.
Eptica's CEO, Olivier Njamfa, credits the international deployment of Eptica solutions and the company's growth over the past five years to the steady increase in consumer Internet use, and being able to provide multi-lingual web self-service and email management solutions that can be deployed and managed with ease. He said: "Consumers have become more confident in making online purchases and are demanding more efficient customer service. Eptica has successfully supported organisations wishing to meet these customer expectations, increase sales, attract new customers and cut customer service costs." Njamfa continues: "Our proven success in the UK and France has enabled us to extend our solutions to countries across Europe to support them in their e-commerce growth phase."
"Making the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 is commendable in today's highly competitive technology industry," said Karel Bakkes, partner in charge of Deloitte's Technology Fast 500 EMEA program. "We congratulate Eptica on being one of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in the region."
Technology Fast 500 EMEA selection and qualifications
The Technology Fast 500 list is compiled from Deloitte's EMEA Technology Fast 50 programs, nominations submitted directly to the Fast 500, and public company database research. To qualify for the Fast 500, entrants must have had 2003 operating revenues of at least €50,000 and 2006 operating revenues of at least €800,000.
Entrants must also be public or private companies headquartered in EMEA and must be a “technology company,” defined as a company that owns proprietary technology that contributes to a significant portion of the company's operating revenues; or devotes a significant proportion of revenues to the research and development of technology. Using other companies' technology in a unique way does not qualify.
