Strategic Connections, Inc. ranks higher in two lists: Deloitte's 2009 Technology Fast 500 companies in North America and the Technology Fast 50, a similar list for Candian companies.
Toronto, ON (PRWEB) April 8, 2010 -- Strategic Connections, Inc. (SCI) today announced that it ranked number 90 on Deloitte's 2009 Technology Fast 500TM, a ranking of 500 of the fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America. The company also ranked 14th in Technology Fast 50TM, a similar ranking of companies in Canada.
This is the second consecutive year SCI has been included in these prestigious lists, and its rankings improved in both. In 2008, it ranked 144th on the Fast 500 and 17th on the Fast 50.
The lists are compiled annually by Deloitte, one of North America's leading business consulting firms. The listings recognize innovative companies that have broken down barriers to success and defied the odds with remarkable five-year revenue growth.
Specific rankings are based on percentage of fiscal year revenue growth during the last five years. SCI grew 2,052 percent during this period.
"With its impressive growth, Toronto-based SCI has earned its position among the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America," said John Ruffolo, national leader, Technology, Media & Telecommunications Industry Group, Deloitte. "Deloitte is proud to honor SCI for its achievement."
Chris Cawston, Strategic Connections CEO, credits SCI's growth to its innovative Software as a Service (SaaS) model and its ability to enable the increasingly sophisticated customer acquisition and marketing programs sought by today's corporate marketing and sales executives.
"Not only does SCI's product suite effectively orchestrate, measure and drive multi-channel, comprehensive marketing programs, it also helps them respond quickly to customer leads in order to build loyalty. As its customers experience increased retention they, in turn, have remained loyal to SCI, leading to the company's quadruple-digit growth over the last half-decade," stated Cawston.
