Stockton firm Visualsoft has featured in the Technology Fast 500 EMEA 2015, published by Deloitte, which recognises the leading technology companies in the world.
Visualsoft, which offers a range of eCommerce solutions including website design, development, online marketing services and training, was ranked at number 471 in the table, which was published earlier this month.
The news comes after a successful month for the agency. In addition to being shortlisted for three awards in the Northern Digital Awards, the team also celebrated a further hat-trick of finalist positions in the Employee Engagement Awards.
The Deloitte Technology Fast 500 TM program ranks the fastest growing public and private technology companies annually across the EMEA, US & Asia Pacific (APAC) regions.
Revenue growth is now calculated for the last four years rather than five, and the revamped sectors are software, hardware, communications, media, life sciences and clean technology.
“Achieving a position in the EMEA Fast 500 is always an impressive feat but the rates of growth for this year are particularly inspiring,” says David Cobb, Deloitte UK partner and partner-in charge of the Deloitte Technology Fast 500TM EMEA program.
“In order to better align our EMEA, US and APAC programmes, the growth is now measured over four rather than five years which has led to a drop in the average rate from 1,711% in 2014, to 1,012% in 2015.”
Visualsoft brand manager Sarah McCormick added: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be rounding off 2015 with a place in the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 TM program.
“Overall the UK provides just 72 of the top 500 companies in the list, so this is an amazing achievement for us.”
Founded in 1998, and with four offices across the UK, Visualsoft has shown an average growth of 226% since 2011.
The company offers a full service eCommerce solution for online retailers, including website design and development, online marketing, training and ongoing support.
Twenty-eight countries featured in this year’s rankings, with 56% of entries from Western European countries.
Software was the most represented sector with 52% of entries, up from 47% in 2014.
