SAMI a Winner at the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Awards for the 3rd Year Running


Software Asset Management Ireland (SAMI), has for the 3rd year running, been ranked in the top 3 companies in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 awards. This year's 3rd place follows on the back of winning the award outright in 2010 and finishing 2nd

Dublin (I-Newswire) November 20, 2012 - Deloitte Technology Fast 50, is a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in Ireland. Rankings are based on average percentage revenue growth over five years. SAMI, which develops and supplies software solutions such as Edvance and ExamTime to the education market, has recorded revenue growth of 2428% during the period.

Commenting on the achievement, Dualta Moore CEO of SAMI said, "Being ranked in the top 3 for the 3rd year running brings as much satisfaction as winning the event outright in 2010. It shows that SAMI is consistently delivering for its customers and as a company. We're in some great company amongst the award winners."

The company's ability to adapt has been the key to the consistent performance. "SAMI has continually looked to add to its services and solutions over the past few years. We are growing a really compelling set of solutions for the education space such as our Edvance school management system. As our solutions grow, so does our team. This award is a great recognition of the effort that the team has put in over the last number of years, so I'm delighted for them".

Announcing the winners of the Technology Fast 50 programme, Richard Howard, Partner with Deloitte, Dublin said: "Each year, we are considerably enthused by the resilience and tenacity of the indigenous technology sector as they demonstrate high levels of growth amidst challenging economic times. One of the key drivers of this growth has been their ability to capitalise on international markets.

Many Irish companies now have an increased focus on international expansion as a way to drive sustainable growth. The indigenous technology sector has been a trailblazer in this regard - some of our most successful technology companies have long been internationalising their IP and reaping the rewards. It's encouraging to observe that so many of our Fast 50 winning companies are seeking to exploit both local and global markets to their best advantage."

Ezetop, (www.ezetop.com) the company which enables people living or working abroad to instantly top up mobile phones of friends and family back home, has achieved top spot in this year's Deloitte Technology Fast 50 awards.

The awards took place in the Guinness Storehouse on Friday 16 November. Dr Chris Horn, co-founder and former CEO Iona Technologies, was keynote speaker at the event. Details of the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 ranking list are available to download at www.fast50.ie.
