SAN DIEGO, April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Grasp Technologies reported first quarter 2013 growth of over 50%, a record for the 17 year old company.  When asked about what has contributed to the consistent, exponential growth of Grasp, CEO Erik Mueller said, "Data remains at the core of every successful business and the need to manage that data and coordinate the flow of information is only going to increase.  We work closely with clients to ensure Grasp provides the solutions they need.  Our staff continues to innovate and find solutions to complex, global data problems for clients worldwide."

"We became Grasp clients in February because the reporting was detailed and flexible, but not outrageously priced and the support desk is proactive and very responsive," said Robert Durant, president and owner of WD Travel, a midsized corporate travel agency headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia.  "Their Data Cleanse product alone is saving us one day a week in our data cleanup efforts.  I've already referred them to four other agencies and two have already signed up."

Grasp's Global Enterprise Solutions Division is working with a number of unique data consolidation projects around the world made possible by Grasp's proprietary secure connection technology. "We are seeing tremendous growth and opportunities in all areas of our business, from our core travel agency business to our Enterprise/Corporate solutions and in our consulting work," added Dave M. Lukas, Grasp vice president.  "Grasp has been a leader in global data consolidation for many years, and we are seeing a steady increase in the need for these solutions."

Grasp increased its staff by over 30% in first quarter and sees the trend continuing.  Grasp has been strategically growing for several years and adding key staff members in all areas of our business, including the core travel agency division, the enterprise division and international support.  "We are also seeing a lot of top tier competitor candidates seeking out Grasp as their new employer and where they see the brightest future. This is a very exciting time as we bring on new talent to drive new products and innovations in the marketplace," added Lukas.
