MONTREAL November 26, 2018 — Ayuda, the leading business software provider for out-of-home (OOH) advertisers, is pleased and proud to announce that we have been ranked among both Deloitte’s Fast50 in Canada and Fast500 in North America for 2018. With 647% revenue growth since 2014, Ayuda is the only company in the out-of-home advertising technology space to be recognized on either list. While the ranking is determined by the rate of revenue growth, to qualify companies must also meet specific criteria about innovation and industry impact and not all companies with high growth are selected.
The Deloitte Technology Fast50 program winners consist of public and private companies in the technology sector, which have transformed the industry. Now in its 21st year, the program runs alongside the broader Deloitte North American Technology Fast500, with winners automatically eligible for this elite ranking. “Ranked at #36 in Canada and #160 in North America, Ayuda has distinguished itself in a booming technology industry,” relates Brian Lindy, CFO of Ayuda. “In 2016 we were a Companies-to-Watch, and this year we come through on that promise of successful growth.” On the Fast500 ranking in North America, Ayuda is among the Top 25 companies in Canada and the Top 10 companies in Quebec.
“From our founding, Ayuda has worked hard to maintain a high retention rate, among both our employees and our clients. These low turnover rates have been in large part due to the trust that we have built with clients, which has allowed us to build upon our achievements,” enthuses Luc Filiatreault, CEO of Ayuda. “All of our success could not have been achieved without the diligence of our team on three continents, many of whom have been with us for over a decade, who have woven client satisfaction into the fabric of this company.”
Ayuda’s mission is to ensure our clients have the best software and knowledge to continue their growth, in order to succeed and shape the future of the out-of-home advertising industry. Celebrating our 15th anniversary in 2018, we offer our clients a robust, complete business software suite that grows with them. Our forward-thinking team of technologists, out-of-home experts, and creative innovators are driven by their passion to see our clients succeed in the ever-evolving OOH advertising landscape.
