Artech Information Systems Receives WPO-Fast Company Entrepreneur Award


MORRISTOWN, NJ - April 20, 2005 -- Ranjni Poddar, President of Artech Information Systems L.L.C., a leading provider of project management and software consulting services globally, was honored with a new entrepreneurial award "Playing by their Own Rules: 25 Women Entrepreneurs Who are Changing the Game" presented by the Women Presidents' Organization in partnership with Fast Company at their annual conference in Toronto, Canada.

Judges scored 600 applicants on four financial metrics: profitability, profitability consistency, compound annual growth rate, and size of revenues. Each judge selected their top 25 choices based on the uniqueness of the business, the creativity of its business model, the strength of the company's culture and its financial and growth profile.

"What is exceptional about the award recipients on the panel is the diversity they bring to the business world," says Marsha Firestone, President and Founder, Women Presidents' Organization. "They represent four different parts of the country, four different kinds of businesses, and four different cultures. It's proof positive that women's businesses are growing in every community."
