Unterschleißheim, 3. November 2015
Ascapex with its investment and shareholding in arivis AG, has made it to the prestigious list of the 50 fastest-growing high-tech companies in Germany. The company achieved an excellent 27th place in this year's "Technology Fast 50 Awards" of Deloitte, one of the four world leading business consulting and audit companies, as a result of its ability to innovate and its competitive strength. The Fast 50s are amongst the most important awards in the German high-tech sector and were presented for the 14th time this year. The rankings are based on the percentage growth in revenue over the preceding four business years, 2011 to 2014.
"Once again, we received a large number of applications from a wide range of technology sectors this year. The wealth of ideas underlines the innovative strength of Germany as a business location. Companies now need to re-evaluate their business processes, to adapt their products and to analyze and evaluate large volumes of data in this digital age. Expert IT solutions are therefore in great demand. "The Fast 50 applicants have gained customer acceptance with their innovative business models and also have the potential to become global players", explains Dr. Andreas Gentner, partner and head of the Technology, Media & Telecommunications Division at Deloitte.
"Receiving the accolade of the Technology Fast 50 Award confirms that we are on the right track with our biomedical software and IT solutions“, says Andreas Suchanek, CEO and founder of arivis, commenting on the award. As a result, arivis AG was able to increase its revenue by more than 206 % over the business years 2011 and 2014. In addition, the number of employees has increased to more than 50. Apart from the head office in Unterschleissheim near Munich, arivis has also established locations in Berlin, Rostock, Phoenix (AZ) and Washington (D.C.). Additional locations are already in the process of being implemented or planned.
One of the innovative products of arivis is the award-winning software suite arivisVision. This revolutionary software for life-science and medical research enables users effortlessly to visualize, process and analyze the vast quantities of data which modern tomographic imaging systems (e.g. light sheet microscopes) produce. Multi-dimensional multi-terabyte image data sets can therefore be quickly and efficiently processed by arivisVision, even on standard PCs and laptops. To illustrate the data volume: a written DIN A4 page is about four kilobytes, one terabyte corresponds to approx. 250 million typewritten pages, which is equivalent to a stack of paper 15 miles+ high! In contrast, competitive products reach their limits at a data volume of 3 to 5 gigabytes. arivis solutions have therefore been able to accommodate the current data explosion in the imaging sector and are meanwhile used in more than 25 countries around the world at this point in time.
Andreas Suchanek forecasts a growth rate of more than 100% for the imaging division this year. As a result, the CEO assumes that arivis will again be ranked amongst the fastest-growing German high-tech companies in the Technology Fast 50 Awards 2016.
