Phunware, whose Multiscreen as a Service (MaaS) platform helps brands engage, manage and monetize their anytime, anywhere mobile application users worldwide, today announced it ranked 165 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, marking the company’s third consecutive appearance on the national list.
“Our continued growth is a true testament to our team and our commitment to relentless innovation,” said Phunware co-founder and CEO Alan S. Knitowski. “We are honored to be a part of this prestigious group of companies setting the bar for success in their industries, and we look forward to continuing to help today’s most recognized brands find success in mobile in 2017.”
The Deloitte Technology Fast 500 provides a ranking of the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies—both public and private—in North America. Winning companies are selected based on percentage fiscal year revenue growth from 2011 to 2014.
Phunware’s third inclusion on the list comes after a year of record growth, with the company operating at an annualized bookings run rate of approximately $70 million.
