New York, NY (PRWEB) October 24, 2007
Sterling Testing Systems, Inc., the leading information resource provider with expertise in employment screening services, announced it has been named to Deloitte's prestigious Technology Fast 500 Program for North America. The program is a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, and life sciences companies in the United States and Canada by Deloitte & Touche USA LLP, one of the nation’s leading professional services organizations. Rankings are based on the percentage revenue growth over five years from 2002–2006.
"We are motivated now more than ever before," said Sterling's CEO, William Greenblatt, who credits commitment to excellence and unwavering focus as drivers for the company's 442% revenue growth from 2002–2006. Greenblatt is passionate about helping organizations create a safer workplace environment by supplying better information through innovative technologies. Under his leadership, the company has deployed the most advanced Human Capital Management Software Solution technology and provided an ever-growing roster of services for its more than 6,000 clients. "We will continue to develop our service-enabling technologies and our abilities to provide information to employers better, faster and cheaper. Ultimately, we win by facilitating the success and safety of our clients and their employees, vendors, and customers."
Sterling's increase in revenues of 442% from 2002 to 2006 resulted in a ranking of 334 in the Technology Fast 500 for North America.
"To rank on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500, companies must achieve phenomenal revenue growth over five years," said Phil Asmundson, vice chairman, U.S. Technology, Media and Telecommunications, Deloitte & Touche USA LLP. "We applaud Sterling for being among the fastest growing companies in North America."
A prime example of Sterling’s focus on technology can be found with CourtDirectSM – Sterling’s proprietary criminal conviction search technology and network. CourtDirectSM has enabled Sterling to deliver criminal search services to its clients more accurately and over 50% faster than its closest competitors.
In addition to ranking on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500, Sterling ranked 28 on the New York Technology Fast 50, which is a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology firms in the New York area.
The Fast 500 ranks the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences companies in North America.
