* Software Magazine ranks Intec as one of the world's largest software companies
London – 23 September 2004 - Intec today announced its inclusion on the Software 500, Software Magazine's list of the world's foremost software and services providers, published as an online catalogue on www.Softwaremag.com. Intec was ranked 190th, with software revenue in 2004 of $90.2 million (£50.7m).
“We are delighted to enter the prestigious Software 500 for the first time this year at number 190,” said Intec CEO, Kevin Adams. “Intec has enjoyed over 40% compound growth over the past five years, and with our recent US acquisition of the Singl.eView retail billing business from ADC we are still growing rapidly.”
The Software 500 is a revenue-based ranking of the world's largest software and services suppliers targeting enterprise IT organizations. The list includes both private and public companies; 30% of the 2004 Software 500 companies are private. The Software 500 is a worldwide list in that any company may submit financial and product information via the annual Software 500 survey, conducted 100% on the Web.
"The software industry remains extremely dynamic, with 140 new companies appearing on the 2004 Software 500 list. Overall results were mixed but total revenue for the 500 was up 14% and total employment up 8%, says John P. Desmond, Editor of Software Magazine and Softwaremag.com. "Sectors strong this year include security, business process management and system integration services including outsourcing services. Site visitors will notice changes to the Software 500 online this year that make it easier to navigate. Our aim is to help CIOs, senior IT managers and IT staff research their partner options and that is a valuable service."
The ranking is based on total worldwide software and service revenue for 2003. This includes revenues from software licenses, maintenance and support, training and software-related services and consulting. Suppliers are not ranked on their total corporate revenue, since many have other lines of business, such as hardware. The financial information was gathered by a survey prepared by King Content Co. and posted at www.Softwaremag.com, as well as from public documents.
