Waikato News - - BUSINESS -

Hamil­ton’s Com­pany-X has ranked num­ber 330 on the Deloitte Tech­nol­ogy Fast 500 Asia Pa­cific 2017, a rank­ing of the 500 fastest grow­ing tech­nol­ogy com­pa­nies in Asia Pa­cific. Rank­ings are based on per­cent­age rev­enue growth over three years.

Com­pany-X grew 138 per cent dur­ing this pe­riod.

Com­pany-X di­rec­tors David Hal­lett and Jeremy Hughes credit tar­geted mar­ket­ing, lever­ag­ing in­ter­na­tional in­dus­try re­la­tion­ships and the com­pany de­liv­er­ing on its prom­ises with the com­pany's 138 per cent rev­enue growth over the past three years.

Jeremy says all of that was pos­si­ble be­cause of the cal­i­bre of staff Com­pany-X at­tracts.

“A sig­nif­i­cant fac­tor is the fact that we have a world class devel­op­ment team,” Jeremy says.

“It’s quite clear when we lis­ten to the feed­back from our in­ter­na­tional clients.

“Do­ing what we said we would do is one of our core val­ues.”

David says Com­pany-X ben­e­fits from be­ing based in the Waikato, which has a rep­u­ta­tion as the Sil­i­con Val­ley of New Zealand, par­tially thanks to the Univer­sity of Waikato’s ex­cep­tional Com­puter Sci­ence Depart­ment.

“The Univer­sity of Waikato pro­duces New Zealand’s best tech­nol­o­gists and many of them come and work for us at Com­pa­nyX,” David says. “The univer­sity is in the world’s top 150 for Com­puter Sci­ence and In­for­ma­tion Sys­tems.”

Grad­u­ates in­clude Dr Craig NevilleMan­ning who led Google’s engi­neer­ing di­vi­sion.

“Mak­ing the Deloitte Tech­nol­ogy Fast 500 Asia Pa­cific rank­ing is a tes­ta­ment to a com­pany’s com­mit­ment to tech­nol­ogy,” said Toshi­fumi Kusunoki, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Lim­ited, Leader, Deloitte Tech­nol­ogy Fast 500 Asia Pa­cific pro­gramme.

“With its 138 per cent growth rate over three years, Com­pany-X has proven that its lead­er­ship has the vi­sion, de­ter­mi­na­tion and abil­ity to adapt and grow in a fastchang­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

“Be­cause Deloitte Tech­nol­ogy Fast 500 Asia Pa­cific mea­sures sus­tained rev­enue growth over three years, be­ing one of the 500 fastest grow­ing tech­nol­ogy com­pa­nies in Asia Pa­cific is an im­pres­sive achieve­ment.

“At­tract­ing enough cus­tomers to at­tain such fast growth over three years makes a strong state­ment about the qual­ity of a com­pany’s prod­uct and its lead­er­ship. Com­pany-X has shown the right cal­i­bre for growth.”

“We congratulate Com­pany-X on be­ing one of the 500 fastest grow­ing tech­nol­ogy com­pa­nies in the re­gion.”

It is the first time Com­pany-X has been ranked on the Deloitte Tech­nol­ogy Fast 500.

Over­all, com­pa­nies ranked on the 2017 pro­gramme had an av­er­age growth rate of 619 per cent — the high­est av­er­age growth rate since 2008.
