QUEBEC CITY, April 30, 2021 – Korem is thrilled to make its entry for the first time on the top 100 solution providers ranking of the Channel Innovation Awards 2021, recognizing Canadian organizations that created and deployed novel solutions to solve pressing problems. The annual CDN Top 100 Solution Providers ranking lists organizations that collectively generated more than $10 billion in revenue during 2020.
“Even though more than 70% of our revenues come from the US market, this recognition reflects the exceptionally favorable positioning of our company in the Canadian market, but also the incredible growth potential of our organization,” said Jean-Sebastien Guy, President at Korem. To this end, in 2020, Korem embarked on an aggressive five-year growth plan and one of the first moves was to become Precisely’s main distributor in Canada, which included Location Intelligence (LI), MapInfo, Customer Information Management (CIM) and the Data product line. Despite the COVID impact on the North American economy, Korem experienced steady growth in 2020.
“The release of the Top 100 Solution Provider ranking acknowledges the companies that are thriving financially,” said ITWC CEO Fawn Annan. “But we also wanted to shine a spotlight on innovation and new approaches. The Channel Innovation Awards are important recognition for companies, regardless of size, who develop breakthrough solutions, seek niche opportunities, and break new ground in serving partners and customers.”
Today, many Canadian companies employ a variety of geospatial technology and are transitioning from a traditional geo-centric ecosystem to a geo-enabled enterprise integration.
It is complex to find the right solution provider who can provide a technology agnostic approach, that first focuses on the business challenges and the company’s needs, before recommending a technology solution.
“The biggest challenge an organization faces with geospatial is not the technology, but the lack of expertise and available resources to create value out of it. Projects fail because businesses think they can dissociate expertise from technology. Not all companies who have grasped the potential of geospatial data and technologies, have invested in building internal competency and literacy to comprehend the nuances of location technology” said Jonathan Houde, CTO at Korem.
