The global enterprise legal management vendor lands notable technology and business awards including listings on the Inc. 5000 and Software 500 and the elite "Pinnacle Award"
HOUSTON, November 24, 2010 – Datacert, Inc., the premier global provider of enterprise legal management solutions, today announced it has been honored on this year’s Inc. 5000, Software 500, Houston Fast 100, and Houston Fast Tech 50 awards lists. Inc. magazine, Software Magazine, and the Houston Business Journal, respectively, all honored the company for its strong 2009 financial performance and revenue growth.
"These distinguished honors are a testament to Datacert’s strategy of balancing profitability and growth while significantly investing in new products, services, and markets," said Jim Tallman, president and chief executive officer, Datacert. "To maintain our dominant position in the enterprise legal management space, Datacert has invested 25-30 percent of revenue back into our products and the launch of Passport™ in 2010 is a fine example. In the past year, we also opened a fourth office in Europe and acquired a software development, customer support, and professional services center for the legal market from our former partner in India. These bold moves have proven to be a successful part of our overall growth strategy.”
While each award has a unique business or technology focus, ranking on each list is based on revenue growth. In conjunction with the Fast Tech 50, the Houston Business Journal also awarded Datacert the "Pinnacle Award” for placing on the list of Houston’s fastest growing technology companies for seven consecutive years. This is an exclusive honor that recognizes a milestone only three other companies have ever achieved.
"A substantial revenue increase is always a significant triumph, but award-winning growth during a volatile economy is a direct result of investing in products and technology that support long-term industry needs reflected by our clients. In short, take care of your customers and the success will come,” said Tallman. "While many companies scale back during a tough economy, our product investment far exceeded industry standards and even led to our latest innovation, Passport, the industry’s first true platform for enterprise legal management. Passport’s rapid adoption in the market place should result in continued recognition and success for the benefit of our clients in the coming year.”
