ATHENS, AL, August 12, 2015 -- Inc. magazine today ranked Summit Technology, Inc. NO. 4461 on its 34th annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.

This service starts in our business development and continues in the delivery of our services; this is a real tribute to the efforts and dedication of our people in delivering PeopleSoft application services. We believe that our inclusion in this prestigious list for the seventh time is an affirmation of this goal and is owed wholly to the expertise, commitment, and character of our employees.“
