We have culled our Fast 3 entries down to the final six. These awards are for the fastest growing users of our software. Same store business growth is the only measure. Next step is to get the data from each of the stores and verify the numbers. We hope to announce the winners by the end of the week.
We created the Fast 3 Awards because too many business awards are based on pretty entries and presentations. Growth is all that matters – especially in tough economic conditions. We were involved in the Telstra Small Business Awards a while back and felt it was more about form filling and talking up your business rather than actual performance numbers.
The growth achieved by the finalists is excellent.
