Share Article

Thanks to a strong client focus and embrace of winning technologies, GAP remains one of the few companies to make the Fast 50 list for three years running.

For the third year running, Growth Acceleration Partners (GAP) has earned a ranking on the Austin Business Journal Fast 50, a list of the city’s fastest-growing private companies with revenue under $10 million.

During the last three years, GAP has achieved revenue growth of more than 250 percent. Thanks to a strong client focus and embrace of winning technologies, GAP remains one of the few companies to make the Fast 50 list in 2012, 2013 and 2014. In addition, GAP’s management team foresaw years ago how critical apps would be for companies that wish to innovate, create efficiencies, and drive up bottom-line profits.

“Companies of all sizes are recognizing the importance of mobile and web apps for both their customers and workforces,” said Joyce Durst, co-founder of GAP. “GAP combines deep expertise in application development with an affordable near-shore outsourcing model that creates exceptional value for our clients.”

GAP is a unique outsourced software development company that combines leading technical skills with business acumen and strategy to create complete software solutions. These range from web applications to mobile apps and traditional client/server software. GAP has served more than 225 satisfied clients, delivering applications ranging from one-time projects to ongoing engagements for software design, development, user experience and quality assurance.

One of these clients, 21CT creates investigative data analytics products to detect healthcare fraud and target and neutralize network security attacks. A fast-growing company, Austin-based 21CT needed to add talented developers to its team. The firm worked with GAP for staff augmentation in the areas of development, quality assurance (QA), and QA automation.

“We needed an effective way to rapidly expand our team with qualified developers who could provide high-quality work and make an impact rapidly,” said Chad Walters, vice president of engineering for 21CT. “After conducting a review of different options for augmenting our staff, it was GAP’s ability to find top-tier talent in a highly competitive market that helped us decide to work with their team.”
