General Software Places in Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Program

10/5/2004 - General Software, Inc., the leading supplier of x86 embedded firmware, has been named to Deloitte’s prestigious Technology Fast 50 Program for Washington State, a ranking of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in the area by Deloitte & Touche LLP, one of the nation's leading professional services firms. Rankings are based on percentage of growth in fiscal year revenues over five years, from 1999-2003.

“Once again General Software has been recognized as one of the fastest growing technology companies in the region,” said Matthew J. Schiltz, President and CEO, of General Software, Inc. “We continue our strong revenue growth by supplying the best software and services in the embedded computing segment. I am happy to report that it is our satisfied customers that are driving this tremendous growth at General Software.”

General Software’s increase in revenues from 1999 to 2003 resulted in a number thirty ranking in the Fast 50 for Washington State. “To make the Deloitte Technology Fast 50, companies within Washington State must have had tremendous revenue growth from 1999–2003. Deloitte applauds General Software, Inc. for having the long-term vision to develop technologies that change the way we work and play” said Larry Hile a partner with Deloitte.

To qualify for the Technology Fast 50, companies must have had operating revenues of at least $50,000 in 1999 and $1,000,000 in 2003, must be public or private companies headquartered in North America, and be a "technology company" defined as owning proprietary technology that contributes to a significant portion of the company's operating revenues (using other companies' technology in a unique way does not qualify); and/or devoting a significant proportion of revenues to research and development of technology.

Winners of the 19 regional Technology Fast 50 programs in the United States and Canada are automatically entered in the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 program, which ranks North America’s top 500 fastest growing technology companies. For more information on the Fast 50 or Fast 500 programs, visit
