ipSCAPE attributes growth to a differentiated cloud product in a high growth Asia market.
ipSCAPE today announced that it ranked Number 398 on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ Asia Pacific 2013, a listing of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in Asia Pacific.
Rankings are based on percentage revenue growth over three years. This year saw the awards dominated by companies from China, India, Australia and Taiwan – with software not surprisingly the leading technology sector.
ipSCAPE’s CEO, Simon Burke credits growth of the cloud market and ipSCAPE’s differentiated product with the company’s strong revenue growth over the past three years. Simon commented, “As cloud reaches early maturity, the market growth is accelerating. ipSCAPE’s 100% cloud solution means we are perfectly placed to take advantage of that market demand. Our new channel partner relationships in Asia will ensure that we are able to access the strong growth in cloud in key domestic markets including South East Asia, Japan, South Korea, China and India.”
“Making the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ is commendable in today’s highly competitive technology industry,” said Ichiro Nakayama, Deloitte Japan partner in charge of the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ Asia Pacific program. “We congratulate ipSCAPE on being one of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in the region.”
In addition to ranking on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™, ipSCAPE recently ranked 39 on the Australian Deloitte Technology Fast 50, which is a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology firms in Australia, and received the Frost and Sullivan Cloud Contact Centre Vendor of the year award for Australia.
About the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ Asia Pacific selection and qualifications:
The Technology Fast 500™ list is compiled from the in-country Deloitte Asia Pacific Technology Fast 50 programs, with nominations submitted directly to the Technology Fast 500™, and public company database research.
To qualify for the Technology Fast 500™, entrants must have had base-year operating revenues of at least US$ 50,000. Entrants must also be public or private companies headquartered in Asia Pacific and must be a “technology company,” defined as a company that develops or owns proprietary technology that contributes to a significant portion of the company’s operating revenues; or manufactures a technology-related product; or devotes a high percentage of effort to the research and development of technology. Using other companies’ technology in a unique way does not qualify.
Founded in 2005 and now operating in 17 countries, ipSCAPE is a software company that has developed public cloud software for contact centres. ipSCAPE’s key differentiator is that the software is delivered 100% as a service (SaaS). This means that companies only pay for the software they use.
Companies who buy the ipSCAPE software access all the features via a secure internet browser – there is no need to download any applications to the desktop or buy new hardware which removes the need for Capex and set up fees. Customers are charged for usage only and the software is designed to be so easy to manage that people within the business are able to manage any software changes themselves with no support from IT.
This SaaS model contrasts with the traditional model where a customer needs to buy all the hardware, software and internet connections separately and retain a systems integrator to make it all work. This traditional model is expensive, time consuming and difficult to manage in-life.
ipSCAPE customers include Telstra Global, AAPT, Smartsalary, Teleperformance, MYOB and British Telecommunications.
