Denver, CO (PRWEB) December 1, 2008
TouchStar, a world leader in call center technology, has been named to Deloitte's prestigious Technology Fast 50 Program for Colorado, a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, and life sciences companies in the area by Deloitte LLP, one of the nation's leading professional services organizations. Rankings are based on the percentage revenue growth over five years from 2003-2007.
TouchStar's Global Director of Sales, Chris Rieple, credits TouchStar's cost saving communications technology with the company's 416 percent revenue growth from 2003-2007. Rieple said, "TouchStar provides all the features that the traditional phone system providers have but we also include cost saving technology such as: predictive dialing, automated messaging, customer self service interactive voice response, screen pop, CRM integration, and VoIP connectivity to enable remote workers. Any size business just about anywhere in the world can benefit from TouchStar's hosted or on site deployment options for their communications technology. Costs related to: purchase, expansion, maintenance, sales, customer service, and facilities can be reduced very quickly with TouchStar."
TouchStar's increase in revenues of 416 percent from 2003 to 2007 resulted in a 12 ranking in the Technology Fast 50 for Colorado. The average increase in revenues among companies who made the Technology Fast 50 for this region was over 100 percent.
"Deloitte's Colorado Technology Fast 50 companies have shown the strength, vision and tenacity to succeed in today's very competitive technology environment," said Kurt Randall, Deloitte Tax LLP, and chair of the 2008 Colorado Technology Fast 50. "We applaud the successes of TouchStar 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 2003 and $5,000,000 in 2007, 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.
