SCI ranked among Canada's Fastest Growing Technology companies in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50
TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2008 - SCI is ranked among the Deloitte Technology Fast 50, a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in Canada, based on the percentage of revenue growth over five years. SCI Ltd. which recently changed its name from Strategic Connections Inc., attained this ranking by increasing revenues by 1,482% from 2003 to 2007.
For over a decade, the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 program has tracked the successful growth of Canadian-grown global leaders. Now Canada's pre-eminent technology award program, the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 augments the broader Deloitte North American Technology Fast 500 initiative, with winners automatically eligible for this elite ranking.
Said Chris Cawston, President & CEO of SCI Ltd, "I attribute the Company's rapid and significant growth to SCI's unique retail process solutions for the automotive retail channel, as well as to the hard work, innovation and entrepreneurial spirit of SCI employees. There is little question that the provision of exceptional software solutions required exceptional people who were able to transform our vision into SaaS-based (Software-as-a-Service) solutions that could significantly improve automotive retail effectiveness. Being ranked among the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 is recognition of the innovation, creativity and industry of SCI employees and we look forward to continuing along the path of significant growth in the years to come."
"Transforming technological innovation into business success is hard, and it's especially difficult to sustain such rapid revenue growth over five years," said John Ruffolo, National leader, Technology, Media & Telecommunications Industry Group, Deloitte. "SCI has rapidly built a highly successful company in the Canadian technology industry and we applaud their dedication and ability to transform their vision into reality."
