Following 607% growth in annual revenue over the last three years, Alcidion celebrates its recognition in the 2019 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Australia Awards.
Alcidion placed 11th on the Technology Fast 50 list, which ranks Australia’s fastest growing public or private technology companies based on their percentage revenue growth over three years (2017-19).
“We’re delighted to receive this recognition from Deloitte as one of Australia’s fastest growing technology providers,” Managing Director Kate Quirke commented on the placing.
“The past year has seen tremendous growth for Alcidion and the global digital healthcare market we operate in, as healthcare organisations worldwide further embrace data and digital health solutions to improve patient care. Alcidion’s momentum will continue as we invest in our technology platform, and in scaling up the business to capitalise on a strong market opportunity ahead.”
Alcidion also placed fourth in the Tech Fast Female category, a new award category this year that recognises companies that have made the Technology Fast 50 list which are founded or co-founded by a female(s) or have a female CEO.
“The IT sector has historically been male-dominated, especially at the leadership level, but we’re glad to see this trend is beginning to change,” said Kate Quirke. At Alcidion, we believe gender balance is important in any industry. When we have a diversity of opinion and approach we ultimately gain better outcomes. When the voices at the table in a business reflect those of your customers, you can create a better customer experience.
“However, for real change to occur, it needs come from the top down and from across the organisation, this is not just about women championing each other. Men must become part of the change. The number of women in IT will not change significantly until more women are appointed to leadership positions. We’re proud to be leading the way, with females contributing to our success at all levels of the business, from staff to management and also at Board-level.”
Supported by the ASX, DLA Piper Australia and National Australia Bank, the 2019 Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Australia Awards are in their nineteenth year and provide international recognition for Australian innovation, with the Technology Fast 50 winners gaining automatic entry into the Deloitte Asia Pacific Technology Fast 500 program.
“I’m so excited about this newly created Tech Fast Female category and the recognition it brings to our female leaders in the Australian business landscape. I’m also thrilled to see that this year we had three businesses with female founders/co-founders or CEOs in our top 10, and a 44 per cent increase in female representation overall, which is outstanding,” Deloitte Private Partner and Technology Fast 50 Leader, Josh Tanchel said.
“It is a significant achievement to make the list at a time when the competition is particularly strong and it points to significant opportunities ahead for all involved.”
