QAS, he noted were ideally positioned to reap the rewards of this proven formula across both domestic and international arenas. He added, "These excellent figures, combined with the exciting news that QAS returns 50% of the Royal Mail Postcode Address File license fees, reflect that the UK market now recognises there is only one main source of high quality, corporate address management systems. "However, the truly exciting news is that QAS is successfully rolling out this proven formula around the World. Indeed, with the launch of our new US division in October and established market leading businesses in Australia and Europe, QAS is already the leading address management software group in the World. "With QAS very much at the heart of the international CRM, call centre and Internet technology markets we expect that the next year will see even greater milestones n the company’s development as one of Europe’s fastest growing technology companies." Worth also felt that a number of key milestones had been reached internally, not least the company’s extension of its employee share ownership scheme. He added, "Of particular significance was the decision in March 2000 to offer all staff the opportunity to purchase shares in the group. There was a 91% take up of this offer. I would like to personally thank the staff at QAS for showing their confidence in the group’s future."
