RIM, which held the title of Canada's largest tech company for several years, has cast a dark shadow over the country's tech sector.
But one Toronto company believes that shadow consists only of RIM—that Canada's tech space is actually humming, and they're one of the companies driving that success.
Intelex is now coming off its third straight quarter of record growth. Indeed, the software company has averaged 40% annual growth for the past decade.
“While we sympathize with the current plight of companies like RIM, we do want Canadians to know it is not all doom and gloom in the Canadian tech sector,” explains Mark Jaine, president and CEO of Intelex. “We are proof that the Canadian tech sector is strong and technologies that help companies manage their business and deliver ROI to stakeholders represent a hot market for agile organizations.”
Intelex has been honoured with "a stream of accolades" from national and international awards competitions, including The Great Place to Work Institute’s 2012 Fifth Best Place to Work in Canada (out of 100); one of Queen’s School of Business and AON Hewitt’s 50 Best Places to Work in Canada 2012; mentions in the Toronto Star and Globe and Mail lists of the best places to work in Canada 2012; three consecutive years of ranking on Deloitte’s Top 500 fastest growing North American software companies; and being named one of Gartner’s "cool" vendors in manufacturing operations for 2011.
“We’re honoured and humbled by the cascade of awards we’ve received in the past year, but more importantly we want the public to know Canadian software is still in great shape,” says Mark. “With all of the talent we’ve brought aboard in the past few years, compounded with our impressive growth numbers and optimistic future, not to mention the achievements of some of our peers, people need to know Canadian tech has come a long way, and the future is bright.”
Intelex was founded in 1992.
