By Des O'Mahony | On Thu, November 23, 2006

Bookassist today announced that it ranked Number 10 in the 2006 Deloitte Technology Fast 50, a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in Ireland. Rankings are based on average percentage revenue growth over five years. Bookassist turnover grew over 800% during this period.

Bookassist’s CEO, Dr Des O’Mahony, credits new market penetrations and competitive product development and pricing in existing markets with the company’s significant revenue growth over the past five years. He said, “We have continually developed the product and continually lowered pricing, and have scaled up on associated services such as our online marketing, trafficbuilder, for our clients. Uniquely in the marketplace, we have continued to concentrate on helping our clients to build their own online brand first and foremost. Our client loyalty over the past years has proven that this is the approach the market wants and we aim for the same loyalty as we expand in our new overseas markets in South America and Central Europe.”

Announcing the winners of the Technology Fast 50 programme, David O’Flanagan, Partner with Deloitte, Dublin said: “What’s very encouraging about this year’s awards is that we are seeing strong performances from both new and previous entrants. This bodes well for our indigenous Irish companies and proves that Ireland is consolidating its position as a key player within the sector, while simultaneously producing fresh and innovative new companies.”

The Fast 50 programme, now in its seventh year ranks the fastest-growing technology companies in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Thirty-five companies from the Republic of Ireland and 15 companies from Northern Ireland were recognised for achieving an average annual growth of 852% over the last 5 years. This represents an increase of 329% on last year.

The Awards ceremony took place in the Mansion House, Dublin and was timed to coincide with the inaugural Deloitte Technology Forum, themed this year, ‘Get Connected – Celebrate Innovation’. Industry figures speaking at the event included Cyril McGuire, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Trintech Technologies Limited, Martin Murphy, Managing Director, HP Ireland, and Paul Lee, Director, Deloitte Research, Deloitte UK.

Bookassist’s Ireland ranking has also led to a position 30 ranking in the Fast 50 combined ranking for UK & Ireland.
