Vancouver, BC — In Motion Technology, the leader in mobile enterprise networks, was named one of Canada’s fastest growing companies, ranked 26th in the nation by the “Deloitte Technology Fast 50™” program.
“Canadian Fast 50 companies innovate, demonstrate entrepreneurship, create jobs, and invest in R&D,” said Richard Lee, National Leader, Technology, Media & Telecommunications Industry Group, Deloitte. “In Motion Technology is an example of a company that has demonstrated the passion, determination and drive that are so important for growth in the Canadian technology sector.”
Now in its 15th year, the Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ program recognizes leaders in the Canadian technology industry and tracks the successful growth of Canadian-grown global leaders. The program augments the broader Deloitte North American Technology Fast 500™ initiative, with winners automatically eligible for this elite ranking.
“I am very proud of the team at In Motion Technology, and of Deloitte’s recognition of their achievements,” said Dean Rockwell, CEO of In Motion Technology. “Over the past four years, In Motion has dedicated itself to becoming the industry leader in mobile enterprise networks that enable organizations to connect and manage their mobile operations efficiently, reliably and securely. Our commitment to expanding our product offerings and providing excellent service to our customers has allowed us to grow, even in a very challenging economy.
To qualify for the Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ ranking, companies must have been in business for at least five years, have revenues of at least $5 million, be headquartered in Canada, own proprietary technology, and conduct research and development activities in Canada. A panel of industry experts evaluate and judge companies based on four key criteria: competitive advantage; size, growth, and market attractiveness; management effectiveness and organization; and financial performance.
“In 2008, In Motion Technology was named a Deloitte Technology Fast 50™ Company to Watch, and in 2010 we ranked for the first time in the top 50,” said Rockwell. “Since then, we have expanded product capabilities and now offer mobile enterprise network systems across multiple industries in North America including transit,utilities, law enforcement, fire and EMS.
