Harbinger Knowledge Products and Harbinger Systems today announced that they have been named to Deloitte Technology’s 2009 Fast 500 Asia Pacific list, a prestigious ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in the Asia Pacific region.

Harbinger Knowledge Products, a leading interactive eLearning software company with headquarters in India and Redmond, was ranked 271st on the list with revenue growth of 162 percent over the past three years. Harbinger Systems, a leading technology services company, was ranked 208th with revenue growth of 208 percent revenue growth during that period.

Today’s announcement marked the second straight year that the two Harbinger Group companies have been named to Deloitte’s Fast 500 Asia Pacific list. In addition, the companies were recently named by Deloitte as two of India’s 50 fastest growing technology companies.

“Achieving sustained revenue growth of more than 150 percent over three years is a tremendous achievement,” said Ian Thatcher, partner in charge of Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 Asia Pacific program. “Harbinger Knowledge Products and Harbinger Systems’ phenomenal growth puts them in select company.”

Vikas Joshi, chairman and managing director of the Harbinger Group, attributed Harbinger Group’s rapid growth to its innovative software products and technology services.

“Educators are discovering that students learn faster and retain information better when they are actively engaged through interactive programs. Harbinger has established itself as a global leader in this important arena,” he said. “The growth in our technology services business despite globally challenging times goes to demonstrate that our clients value the innovation we deliver through services.”

Harbinger Knowledge Products’ leading software product, Raptivity, enables instructors to easily create highly interactive eLearning content, including games, simulations, 3D objects, videos and even “virtual worlds” that bring traditional subjects like history, science and mathematics to life.

“Harbinger’s software makes learning much more fun and interesting for students and employees, which in turn helps them learn more easily,” said Redmond resident Seema Chaudhary, president of Harbinger Knowledge Products, which has an office in downtown Redmond. “Additionally, the software is easy for instructors to use. They don’t have to be software programmers or designers. Teachers simply follow one of hundreds of templates to create their own, customized interactive program.”
