Axios rated a European ‘champion for growth’

Europe’s 500 is the list of the 500 most dynamic firms in the recently enlarged 25-nation European Union plus Switzerland, Norway and Iceland. 


Compilers of the list - Entrepreneurs for Growth, Microsoft and KPMG - said these companies were ‘champions of growth and role models for Europe’s future,’ having created 130,000 jobs over the last three years while increasing turnover and employment by an average of 14% annually. 


Axios Systems supplies assyst, an award-winning Help Desk and ITSM solution used by organizations to identify and track problems with their IT infrastructures, and improve management of assets. Overseas revenues are now outpacing income from its UK home base. 


Mark Hopton of KPMG commented: “The success of many of these leading companies is attributable to dynamic and creative leadership from individuals who display conviction, self-confidence and self-belief.” 


Ailsa Symeonides, Sales and Marketing Director of Axios Systems which has been voted best vendor three times in succession by the Help Desk Institute, said: “It is an honor for us to be included in such a prestigious list which for the first time contains firms from countries which joined the European Union last year. Axios’ policy of constant innovation is enabling it to continue to make excellent progress in Europe and other parts of the world.” 


Europe’s 500 is based on company performance over three fiscal years, from end-December 2001 to end-December 2004. Winning firms are due to be recognized at the Awards’ ceremony and gala dinner in Barcelona on 19 November. 


Axios Systems has 11 offices in nine countries in Europe, North America, the Middle East and Australia.
