Seattle, Wash. (PRWEB) September 28, 2007
Deloitte & Touche USA LLP today announced the rankings of its annual Technology Fast 50 for the 50 fastest-growing technology companies in Washington State. Global market intelligence solutions provider GMI (Global Market Insite, Inc.) ranks #7 on the list, with a five-year revenue growth by 1,771 percent (2002-2006). This is the third consecutive year that GMI has made this prestigious list. The average percentage growth for this year's Fast 50 companies was 748 percent.
"The secret to our success is that we stay focused on what our customer wants, how to deliver it better than anyone else, and how to constantly innovate for their future needs," explains Mike Brochu, GMI's CEO. "We are the engine that drives market research, providing a fully integrated solution that includes transparent high-quality consumer panels, survey development services, and innovative software."
GMI, whose global headquarters are located outside of Seattle, Wash., is the only company that provides comprehensive integrated solutions for global market intelligence. Solutions include Net-MR and Research Studio, two suites of software tools to manage and automate research throughout the project lifecycle, desktop analysis tools, 24x7x365 service bureau capabilities, and one of the world's largest, highly profiled, double opt-in panels, spanning across 200 countries and territories.
"Deloitte's Washington State Technology Fast 50 companies have shown the strength, vision and tenacity to succeed in today's very competitive technology environment," said Larry Hile, a partner with Deloitte & Touche LLP in Seattle. "We applaud the successes of GMI, and acknowledge it as one of the very few to accomplish such a fast growth rate over the past five years."
To qualify for the Technology Fast 50, companies must have had operating revenues of at least $50,000 in 2002 and $5,000,000 in 2006, be headquartered in North America, and be a company that owns proprietary technology or proprietary intellectual property 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 or intellectual property in a unique way does not qualify.
