Chicago, Illinois, - Premier International has been named to Deloitte & Touche's prestigious Technology Fast 50 Program for Chicago, a ranking of the 50 fastest-growing technology companies in the area by Deloitte & Touche LLP, one of the nation's leading professional services firms.

Premier International's President, Jim Hempleman, credits Premier International's unique technology and their strong client focus for the company's impressive revenue growth. "There have been two major factors in our success," Hempleman said. "The first is our technology. Our rapid application development software, Applaud, offers the opportunity to significantly reduce our clients' costs."
"The second major factor in our success has been our professional services group's focus on our clients' success," Hempleman continued. "Our consultants are trained to place our client's interests first. We believe that if we always focus on our clients' best interests, our clients will always want more. We have client relationships that have extended for over twenty years."
To qualify for the Fast 50, companies must be public or private companies headquartered in North America and be a "technology company" defined as companies that own proprietary technology which contributes to a significant portion of the company's operating revenues or devotes a high percentage of effort to research and development of technology.
