Verifi Identity Services Among Fastest Growing Companies
Verifi Identity Services Ranked Number 154 Fastest Growing Technology Company on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ Asia Pacific 2018.
Attributes its 481% Percent
Revenue Growth to the demand for tools to streamline
Auckland, New Zealand, 13 December 2018 – Verifi Identity Services today announced that it ranked Number 154 on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ Asia Pacific 2018, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in Asia Pacific. Rankings are based on percentage revenue growth over three years. Verifi Identity Services grew 481% during this period.
Verifi Identity Services’ Managing Director, Vincent McCartney, credits market demand for ways to streamline customer onboarding processes and a lot of hard work with the company’s 481% revenue growth over the past three years. He said, "An increasing amount of companies captured by New Zealand’s Anti-Money laundering legislation are realising that by an electronic identity verification solution, such as Cloudcheck, to streamline their customer onboarding they can increase revenue, reduce costs and improve their customer experience.
To place 154th in Asia Pacific, and 6th in New Zealand, is an outstanding achievement and demonstrates the growth potential for RegTech companies right now as an increasing number of New Zealand companies are brought into the AML/CFT regime.
We have achieved our growth without any external funding or grants which shows that New Zealand start-ups can achieve success without capital raising if they have the right proposition and a lot of hard work."
"Making the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ is commendable in today’s highly competitive, fast-changing technology industry," said Toshifumi Kusunoki, DTTL Leader, Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ Asia Pacific program. "We congratulate Verifi Identity Services on being one of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in the region."
Overall, companies that ranked on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ Asia Pacific 2018 program had an average growth rate of 600 percent—the highest average growth rate since 2008.
Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ Asia Pacific selection and qualifications
The Technology Fast 500™ list is compiled from the Deloitte Asia Pacific Technology Fast 50 programs, 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.
