Fay Brown, ImageLinks General Manager credits this growth to the company’s unique role as both a software developer and image processing services provider. “Our products and superior technology have clearly filled a need among geospatial information users who want to interactively define, create and download customized imagery right into their desktop application,” said Brown.
“In an era when technology companies come and go, making the Deloitte & Touche Technology Fast 50 is a testament to a company's vision that allows growth over a five-year period. ImageLinks has proven that its leadership has the right stuff for growth, and we at Deloitte & Touche salute their accomplishments,” said Mike Harding, partner-in-charge of the North Florida Technology, Media & Telecommunications Group.
ImageLinks’ increase in revenues of 314 percent from 1997 to 2001 resulted in a number 16 ranking overall in the Florida High Tech Corridor Technology Fast 50.
