MICROSURVEY SOFTWARE RISES IN THE PROFIT 100 LIST
Last year was difficult for many companies, but here in the Okanagan Valley one company saw a 30% increase in sales. With 5 year sales growth of 1,952%, MicroSurvey Software, Inc. rose in the annual Profit Magazine Top 100 Fastest Growing Companies in Canada to 40th position in 2001 from 69th spot in 2000. MicroSurvey ranked 6th out of BC based companies in the list.
The company introduced several products in 2001 which increased sales. A new Accident Reconstruction Data Collection system was purchased by many US states and Federal agencies, including the Bomb division of the ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms). MicroSurvey’s products were used by the ATF at the Salt Lake City Olympics for mapping sensitive high security areas.
A new line of Surveying Data Collection software was released in 2001 called MicroSurvey FieldGenius. This advanced mapping system fits in the palm of your hand, but is capable of creating diagrams accurate to the nearest millimeter. Combining FieldGenius with MicroSurvey’s desktop solutions created a world class system that is taking on all competition in the US. More than 50% of MicroSurvey’s 2001 revenues were generated south of the border and the management expects that to continue.
