Fast50 iAwards Appsters

Deloitte just announced the 50 fastest-growing companies in Australia for 2014, and we’re one of them.

Our growth rate of 97 percent over the past two years places us in the 2014 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Australia, which recognises Australian companies that have consistently achieved the fastest rates of annual revenue growth.

Now in its 14th year, the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 recognises and profiles Australian technology companies, public or private, that have achieved the fastest rates of annual revenue growth (based on percentage revenue growth over the past three years).

The Australian program is part of the global Deloitte Technology Fast 500 program run in parallel with over 20 other countries around the world.

Soprano’s rapid growth also places us in the 2014 Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ Asia Pacific, which compares growth rates among technology companies from Australia, China (including Hong Kong), India, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore and Taiwan.

The Deloitte Technology Fast 500

The Deloitte Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific is the pre-eminent technology awards program in Asia Pacific.

Combining technological innovation, entrepreneurship and rapid growth, Technology Fast 500 companies – large, small, public and private – span a variety of industry sectors and are leaders in hardware, software, telecom, semiconductors, life sciences and emerging areas such as clean tech. The companies are transforming the way business is done today.

“We’re delighted to be recognised as one of the fastest growing technology companies in Australia and the entire APAC region,” said Horden Wiltshire, CEO of Soprano Design. “The award recognises the strength of our growth, which has doubled in the past two years. Our success is based on a commitment to technological excellence and our deep relationships with telecommunications customers around the globe.”

Awards, Acquisitions, and Launches

The Fast 50 and Fast 500 recognitions cap off a banner couple of months for Soprano. Not only did we acquire Spanish mobile messaging provider SITmobile, we won an Appsters award and an iAward.

We also launched secure enterprise mobile messaging app SOPRANO GAMMA, which helps businesses make an orderly transition from SMS to a secure, rich multimedia IP-based messaging experience without sacrificing the reach that only SMS provides.
