A1: ORCODA's inclusion in the AFR Fast 100 is a testament to our outstanding performance, driven by organic growth in recurring revenues with major contract wins, strategic partnerships with channel partners such as Teletrac Navman, and the successful acquisitions and integrations of The Betta Group in 2020 and Future Fleet in 2023 (with contribution to commence from 1 July 2023).
