Avaap landed at eight on the Fast 50 list, five points higher than its 2015 ranking. The NJTC award honors Avaap for its business accomplishments in technological collaboration, partnership and innovation.
“Rapid expansion through strategic partnerships and acquisitions combined with customer-focused innovation as well as a unique culture where people love coming to work are key elements to our growth and success,” said Dhiraj Shah, president and CEO, Avaap. “We are proud to earn recognition and awards because it highlights the achievements of our team.
