Software product engineering specialist 99X Technology was felicitated for its pioneering work and potential for exponential growth when it was ranked on the prestigious Red Herring 100 Asia Index for 2017.

This award recognizes 99X Technology as one of the most promising private technology ventures in Asia, a tribute to its efforts in the ICT sphere. The company aims to empower its clients through the creation of market winning products crafted with cutting-edge technologies, outstanding user experience and the latest digital trends, delivered by an innovative workforce, all of which came together to contribute to this success.

Commenting on 99X Technology’s entry onto the 2017 ranking, Red Herring Chairman Alex Vieux stated: “Congratulations on your contribution to the IT/BPM sector in Sri Lanka – it gave Red Herring the opportunity to know more about 99X Technology and it goes without saying that your team’s achievements are second to none.”
