Recently, we learned that ASR would be named to Washington Technology Magazine's Fast 50, a list of the fastest growing companies serving the U.S. government. While it is certainly gratifying to be provided with such recognition, it was especially exciting to see that the magazine chose ASR as one of a handful of companies on the list to spotlight.
Washington Technology recognized that the story of ASR is built on a foundation of trust. A trust that we try to build with each of our clients and partners.
The following is a press release of the announcement:
Potomac, MD, September 8, 2009: ASR Analytics LLC, a consulting firm providing advanced analytic services to public and private sector clients, was recently named to Washington Technology Magazine's Fast 50. ASR was ranked 22nd among the fastest growing companies serving the United States government. The magazine's Fast 50 rankings evaluate the growth of small businesses over a five year period.
ASR was also highlighted in an article appearing on Washington Technology's website (http://www.washingtontechnology.com/Articles/2009/08/31/Fast-50-ASR.aspx). The article noted that ASR fills a unique niche for its clients in government, higher education, and health care, helping them to integrate enterprise data with predictive analytics.
The magazine cited the company's work with the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) as an example of its specialized work. ASR worked with the medical school to develop a long-term career outcome study of its graduates. The data from the study was integrated with data from the institution's student information system. Predictive analytics were applied to identify patterns and trends that administrators used to make decisions for recruitment and student retention.
Trust was another key aspect of ASR's success noted by the article's author. Forging deep relationships and advancing solutions that emphasize people and process as much as technology helps the company build a high-degree of trust with its clients. "In times like now, when budgets are tight, [organizations] are going to turn to the people they trust," said Dr. Peter Arena, one of ASR's founding principals. "That is the kind of reputation we are trying to build."
