Each year Financieele Dagblad organises the FD Gazellen – awards that recognise the fastest growing companies in the Netherlands. In its 15th year, the organisers have tightened their selection and evaluation criteria wherein multiple categories that must be adhered to for recognition. These criterion in broad terms are – revenue growth, profit margins, company size – measured over a period of three years.
Starting out as a firm specialising in earth observation, IMAGEM in the last few years has expanded. Since late 2014, the focus and efforts have been in providing hybrid location-intelligence solutions to governments and commercial organisations, helping them visualise, analyse and understand the implementation and effects of their policies and plans. The FD Gazellen award substantiates the growing demand for smart location-intelligent solutions.
While providing intelligent solutions based on cutting-edge geospatial technology, IMAGEM strives to help the government make effective use of the taxpayers’ money. The latest initiative – the VALLEY – is an example of the company’s vision to work with the Dutch government to create a ‘shared digital economy’.
