Vancouver Tech Evangelist Boris Mann announced today that he's joining iQmetrix as of September 1st.
In his blog post today, Mann conceded that while most of us likely haven't heard of iQmetrix, he believes that they're going to be known as a great Canadian success story. Here's his quick company history:
The company is privately held, around 10 years old, and started in Regina, Saskatchewan. They scratched their own itch at Jump.ca – a wireless retailer AKA store that sells cellphones / mobile plans / accessories etc. – and wrote their own software for CRM, point-of-sale, and so on. The productized version of this became iQmetrix, and they went on to grow until today, there are wireless retailers using the software in every major mall in North America.
From a Vancouver perspective, the story is something to be proud of as the entire executive team recently pulled up stakes in Saskatchewan to relocate to Vancouver and open their corporate head office.
With Mann now on board, there is no doubt that the company be benefitting from his huge network and kicking it into growth mode.
Our own Michelle Sklar will be interviewing Mann at the GROW Conference this Friday, so stay tuned for more on IQMetrix and his new role.
