Lanham, MD (PRWEB) December 23, 2005
Vocus, Inc., (NASDAQ: VOCS) a leading provider of on-demand software for corporate communications and public relations, today announced that it was named one of the fastest growing technology companies in the country, according to the 2005 Deloitte Technology Fast 500, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in North America. Rankings are based on percentage revenue growth over five years, from 2000-2004. Vocus grew 330% percent during this period and was ranked #399 on the list.
“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,” said Tony Kern, deputy national managing principal of Deloitte’s Technology, Media and Telecommunications industry practice. “Vocus, Inc. has shown the right stuff for growth.”
The Fast 500 list is compiled from Deloitte's 15 regional North American Fast 50 programs. To qualify for the Fast 500, entrants must have had 2000 operating revenues of at least $50,000 USD and $75,000 CD for the United States and Canada, respectively; and 2004 operating revenues must be at least $1 million USD or CD. Entrants must be headquartered in North America 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.
