6th Fastest Growing in DFW – Now That’s Something to Talk About!

Can you afford to lose visibility of this cargo’s location? For an hour? For a day? For a week? Of course, we all know the answer already: losing visibility into critical assets can mean losing even more: money, time, productivity, safety, sanity…

I usually don’t get too excited about awards Geoforce receives, and we’ve received a number of them in the past couple of years, like Boston Strategies’ Oil & Gas Supply Chain Excellence Award, and LAGCOE’s Spotlight on New Technology Award. Don’t get me wrong, the recognition is nice, but most awards are somewhat subjective – and they aren’t necessarily an indicator of business success. Remember the company that won the coveted Malcolm Baldridge Quality Award some time ago, and then was bankrupt a few years after that?   But I do have to puff out our collective chests a bit about the award that was announced today by the Metroplex Technology Business Council: Geoforce was named the sixth fastest growing technology company in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area for 2009 to 2011. The award is based on very objective criteria: demonstrated revenue growth. Now that’s a meaningful statistic.   We narrowly missed the Top Five companies, who were feted at a major event last Friday at the Tech Titans Gala at the Hilton Anatole. Ranking in that group would have been nice, but just missing out does have a couple of silver linings:

  1. It gives us a great goal for next year.
  2. That was one less business dinner we had to attend to keep us away from the kids (on a weekend no less).

I really do need to brag about the team a little bit. Each year, Geoforce has managed to double its business, and that would not be possible without an amazing team of people in every area: developers, business development and sales, operations, finance and administration. Kudos to the entire group, this recognition belongs to all of you.
