Sherbrooke, Canada (PRWEB) October 20, 2011
A worldwide leader of hosted services, SherWeb proudly announces that it ranked number 77 on Technology Fast 500™, Deloitte’s ranking of 500 of the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America. Companies were evaluated on percentage of fiscal year revenue growth during the period from 2006 to 2010. SherWeb presented an increase in revenues of 1332 percent, thereby winning a 16th place in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50™, a second win in as many years.
“We are living proof that Canadian technology companies with high added value can be competitive in the North American market and our entry into the Technology Fast 500™ demonstrates how SherWeb can claim its place among the most important hosted services providers in the world," says Peter Cassar, president and co-founder CEO of SherWeb.
A remarkable growth rate
Richard Lee, National Leader, Technology, Media & Telecommunications Industry Group, Deloitte, emphasizes the fact that Canadian technology companies have demonstrated some very impressive growth numbers over the past year, amid the challenges of an uncertain global economic recovery. “SherWeb, as well as both Technology Fast 50™ and Technology Fast 500™ winners in 2011 have shown a remarkable drive for creativity and innovation,” adds Lee. “Deloitte congratulates SherWeb for this significant achievement.”
For SherWeb, it is well deserved awards and greatly appreciated. “The market for hosted services is growing rapidly and the penetration rate increases at a terrific rate. For that matter SherWeb is one of the few Canadian companies to offer email and collaboration solutions such as hosted Exchange 2010 and SharePoint 2010,” stated Peter Cassar.
SherWeb intends to continue this momentum particularly by adding new products to its range of services and by developing new resource tools in the near future.
