Impel Ranked 118th Fastest Growing Company in North America on Deloitte’s 2019 Technology Fast 500

1,047% revenue growth driven by increasing demand for digital automotive merchandising technology

SYRACUSE, NY – November 7, 2019
— Impel, the global leader in digital automotive merchandising software, announced today that it ranked 118th on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™. The Fast 500, now in its 25th year, ranks the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America.

Impel grew 1,047% between 2015 and 2018, buoyed by the ongoing shift in auto shopping from physical showrooms to online dealer websites and marketplaces. The company’s digital merchandising technology and data products enable auto retailers to move vehicle inventory faster while addressing the growing challenge of margin compression.

“The online vehicle showroom has become a critical driver of success for every auto dealer, and that’s why more and more of them have turned to Impel to transform the experience they deliver to today’s digital shopper,” said Devin Daly, Impel CEO. “Our growing portfolio of products and our deep commitment to helping dealers navigate the digital transformation that is taking place in the industry have enabled us to grow at an incredible rate. We look forward to continuing our efforts to bring innovative products and technology to automotive retailers and wholesalers around the world.”

“This year marks the 25th anniversary of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500, so we are especially pleased to announce and congratulate the 2019 winners,” said Sandra Shirai, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP, and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications leader. “Once again, we saw innovation across the board, with software companies continuing their dominance of the top ten. It’s always inspiring to see how the Fast 500 companies are transforming business and the world we live and work in.”

“As technology innovation trends towards ‘everything as a service,’ it’s no surprise that software companies dominate the winners list yet again this year,” said Mohana Dissanayake, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP, and industry leader for technology, media and telecommunications, within Deloitte’s audit and assurance practice. “What’s exciting about celebrating 25 years of the Tech Fast 500 is we now have a quarter century of innovation stories to draw and reflect upon. These are the companies that push boundaries, help organizations become more efficient and productive, and ultimately enable businesses to drive growth and revenue. We congratulate all the well-deserving winners.”
