Online grocery delivery provider buymie has been named as the fastest growing technology company in this year's Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Technology Awards.

The company has a network of over 400 personal shoppers that deliver groceries from Lidl, Dunnes Stores and Woodies in Ireland in as little as one hour.

Buymie uses technology to bundle orders and routes to minimise both time and carbon impact and has seen growth of 6,903% in the last four years.

It also expanded to the UK earlier this year in partnership with ASDA.

Now in their 23rd year, the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Awards ranks the country's 50 fastest-growing technology companies based on revenue growth over a four-year period.

Mail Metrics, which was 14th in last year's rankings, moved up to second place in 2022.

The company provides financial services companies with a solution to transform their regulatory and customer communications.

Its focus is on migrating customer correspondence to digital channels and reducing postal communications, which helps to improve the customer experience and increase regulatory compliance.

This year's top ten featured seven new entrants to the awards, among them third placed Reitigh Software which enables leading global financial services organisations to solve complex administration challenges.

Fintech company Swoop was fourth in this year's awards. Swoop supports SMEs by bringing their business data into one place to garner insights and be instantly matched to eligible finance.

Its CEO and founder Andrea Reynolds was also awarded the Advocate for Women in Technology Award in association with Indeed.

David Shanahan, Partner at Deloitte, said that as the business environment becomes more complex, the Irish technology sector has shown great resilience and tenacity.

"This year's ranking shows growth across a broad range of sectors with companies coming up with innovative solutions to address changing consumer and business demands while faced with adversity," Mr Shanahan said.

"It's also encouraging to see so many new entrants, including seven in the top ten. Despite the challenges of late, the Irish indigenous tech sector continues to succeed," he added.
