Deloitte has named its Australian Technology Fast 50 winners which highlighted the top performing technology companies that accumulated more than $8 million in revenue over the three year period from 2013 to 2015.

“Each year we are blown away by the quality, capacity and foresight of our Deloitte TechFast 50 award winners. Their ideas, their grasp of what the market wants, and their ability to deliver is simply awesome,” he said.

Deloitte Australia technology, media and telecommunications leader, Stuart Johnston, said the TechFast 50 winners are making a big impact on consumers and businesses by offering simpler, faster, quality cost effective services across all industry sectors.

“These awards demonstrate the disruptive power of the Internet, software and Cloud providers across financial services, consumer business, the public sector, life sciences and real estate sectors and the value that technology and telecommunications is and can deliver to the market,” Johnston claimed.

Deloitte also named its leadership award winners, comprising Australian tech companies with high revenue growth. The top three leadership award winners are e-commerce group, AussieCommerce Group; mobile services provider, Amaysim; and fintech company, Nimble.

National IT services provider, Empired, was awarded 30th place in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 2015 for growth, and 4th place in the leadership category.

One of the exciting trends this year is that Australia’s top 50 fastest growing technology companies are becoming more mature, with many operating for more than seven years, and 26 previously ranked in our winners’ lists,” Tanchel added.
