Seattle, WA (PRWEB) December 8, 2008
A Place for Mom, a nationwide senior care referral service for healthcare options such as assisted living and nursing homes, has been named to Deloitte & Touche USA LLP's prestigious Technology Fast 50 program for Washington State, a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, and life sciences companies in the area by Deloitte, one of the nation's leading professional services organizations. Rankings are based on the percentage revenue growth over five years from "2003-2007."
A Place for Mom's President and Founder Pamala Temple credits the employees' hard work and dedication to families for the growth and success of the company. A Place for Mom uses proprietary technology to provide personal, professional assistance to families searching for elder care. Temple said, "We are honored to be recognized by Deloitte & Touche for our innovative technology which allows us to help millions of families find the right senior care option for an aging loved one. This ranking is validation of our commitment to seniors and acknowledgement that we are on the road to continued success."
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.
Companies from the regional Technology Fast 50 programs in the United States and Canada are automatically entered in Deloitte's Technology Fast 500 program, which ranks North America's top 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications and life sciences companies.
