QUEBEC, June 10 /CNW Telbec/ - KOREM, a leader in the development and
integration of geospatial technologies, and Primus Geographics, a company
acquired by KOREM in April 2009, have received four prestigious awards from
Pitney Bowes Business Insight (PBBI) for activities in 2008. These awards
recognize the partner's excellence and were presented during the Insights '09
User Conference taking place June 3rd through 5th in Orlando, Florida.
KOREM was awarded a prize as "Canadian Business Partner of the Year" for
2008. This award, won by KOREM for eight consecutive years, recognizes its
unparalleled performance, collaboration and customer-centric values. "This
partner has continued to carry the PBBI flag throughout Canada and in the US,
generating, again, the highest annual net-to-PBBI revenue of any Canadian
partner. They are known for their exceptional ability to respond quickly to
customer needs, and have often supported PBBI selflessly on deals, and can
always be relied on to do the right thing for the customer", said Brian Weiss,
Director, Channel Sales at Pitney Bowes Business Insights. "They have built a
solid reputation as consistently delivering the best, most comprehensive,
solutions that regularly exceed customer expectations, and have achieved the
confidence of the customer as their "Trusted Advisor," he added.
Primus Geographics, now a subsidiary of KOREM, was awarded "US State and
Local Government Partner of the Year" for 2008. This award acknowledges Primus
Geographics' exemplary performance in one or more areas of sales, in addition
to its growth and teamwork. "This PBBI partner had the highest combined
software and data revenue of all state and local partners for FY08. It also
accounted for approximately 15% of all VAR State & Local government revenue,
more than doubling their year-over-year government sales, and was responsible
for a 12-year contract (the only deal of this length, even outside of
government), closed in 2000... another great example of challenging the norm,"
said Brian Weiss.
Primus Geographics also received two other awards in the ALL STAR
category: "Double-Digit Annual Growth" (2007-2008) and "Significant 3-year
Growth Performance" (2005-2008) (greater than)50%.
"We are extremely proud to have received these four awards, which reflect
the level of trust placed in KOREM and Primus Geographics by our customers
throughout North America, and reaffirms our success in meeting their needs,"
stated Sébastien Vachon, founding president of KOREM.
