As a technology company founded in 1999, rapidLD saw immediate, significant growth.
However, not immune to macroeconomic forces, rapidLD’s business slowed in 2001. However, since that time, rapidLD has seen sustained growth since 2002 with positive net income in each year. This is due to our focus on doing what is right for the customer, diligence in managing the bottom line, and a great work environment with little employee turnover. These strategies allow us to get recurring project work from our clients resulting in a low cost of sales. In spite of the uncertainty in the US economy, we have continued to show positive growth and net income.
In 2009, we began the development of a new software product (Rapid Talent Measurement – rapidTM®) that we believe continue our leadership in the Talent Management space. rapidTM® is a strategic reporting and analytics application, providing our customers another effective tool to validate investments in employee development. Customers that engage with us on that platform also get visibility into our portfolio of consulting services and finding other opportunities to engage. It is this cycle of Value creation that bodes well for the future of rapidLD!
