The PROFIT 100 are role models for anyone who wants to expand their business domestically or internationally
Toronto, ON (PRWEB) June 4, 2008
Fusepoint Managed Services, the leading provider of outsourced managed IT and infrastructure services to mid-market organizations in Canada, has been recognized in the 20th annual PROFIT 100 ranking of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies by PROFIT Magazine as number 46.
Fusepoint's revenue has grown 1,400% over the past five years, as over 400 new customers including The Canadian Football League, Bell Canada, Fujitsu, Maple Leaf Foods, Colliers International, CIBC, Rogers Communications, and the Royal Canadian Mint have all chosen Fusepoint's fully managed and colocation services. Ranking Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies by five-year revenue growth, the PROFIT 100 profiles the country's most successful growth companies.
Published in the June issue of PROFIT and online at PROFIT100.com, the PROFIT 100 is Canada's largest annual celebration of entrepreneurial achievement.
"Our dedication to delivering outstanding service continues to pay dividends both operationally and financially," said George Kerns, President and CEO of Fusepoint. "Recruiting highly-skilled staff and investing in technical and infrastructure upgrades enables Fusepoint to grow in lock-step with our customers and their specialized IT needs. We are very pleased to be recognized by PROFIT as one of Canada's fastest growing companies and our success results from having a top-notch team in place."
"The PROFIT 100 are role models for anyone who wants to expand their business domestically or internationally," says Ian Portsmouth, editor of PROFIT. "All entrepreneurs can take great lessons from the product development, human resources and marketing practices of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies."
Having recently announced the expansion of its Vancouver data centre, Fusepoint is also planning additional facilities development in Toronto to meet increased demand.
"Issues surrounding the compliance and regulation of sensitive and private data have ignited a firestorm in the managed services market as companies scramble to keep pace with a growing list of technical requirements," added Kerns. "Fusepoint has been able to leverage our continued investments in areas of compliance certifications such as CICA 5970, SAS 70 Type II, and Tier 1 PCI that give Fusepoint an advantage over the competition. In short, we believe our growth is a direct reflection of our technical command of managed services."
