Sygic is again among fastest growing technology companies from 13 countries of Central and Eastern Europe, ranking number 15 in Deloitte's Technology Fast 50 this year.
“The main elements of this success are customer focused strategy and a product running on multiple platforms and types of devices,” says Michal Štencl CEO and founder of Sygic. “Our growth is happening on operating systems that did not even exist five years ago.”
Sygic, previously awarded number 6 in the subcategory Rising Stars of Technology Fast 50 Central Europe in 2008 and 2009, is the fastest growing IT company in Slovakia. Sygic revenue has grown by 995% over last 5 years. This year the GPS navigation company is also ranking in the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA 2011. The program recognizes the 500 fastest-growing technology companies across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), based on percentage revenue growth over the last five years. The exact ranking will be revealed at a ceremony held on 24. November 2011.
At its beginning Sygic entered a well developed market. Today it is competing neck to neck with the big players. “Vision and hard work paid out. But I will not deny that we had a bit of luck as well,” concludes CEO Michal Štencl.
