"OnX Enterprise Solutions continues to grow and expand in spite of general economic slowdown"
TORONTO, March 1 /CNW/ - OnX Enterprise Solutions was a winner of Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies program in 2008 and has requalified in 2009 to maintain their status as a Best Managed company for the second year in a row. This prestigious national award is sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC Commercial Banking, National Post, and Queen's School of Business.
"Companies are always judged by profitability, as they should be," says John Hughes, Partner, Private Company Services group with Deloitte, a national sponsor of the Best Managed program. "But Best Managed companies like OnX Enterprise Solutions have been singled out for qualities that promise long term growth. They've made rigorous investments in their own potential."
"We are extremely pleased and honoured to be recognized with this distinction for the second year in a row. It is a testament to our leadership and the commitment of each associate in the organization to be successful and deliver products and solutions that meet our client's needs and exceed their expectations" said Ed Vos, President.
Since OnX earned the distinction of being one of Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies, they have experienced exponential growth, which happens to be the company's number one corporate objective. Their success comes from deep relationships with their clients and thoroughly understanding their client's technology needs, leading them to define five "big bets" from a technology standpoint. This go to market strategy has fueled their growth and positions them to continue on an upward trajectory. In the past fiscal year, they have opened offices in Dallas, Winnipeg, Fredericton, and Halifax.
Established in 1993, the Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies is a national awards program, recognizing Canadian companies that have implemented world-class business practices and created value in innovative ways. Applications are reviewed by an independent judging panel that evaluates how companies address various business challenges, including new technologies, globalization, brand management, leadership, leveraging and developing core competencies, designing information systems, and hiring the right talent to facilitate growth.
"It takes a company focused on values, a strong business plan, and most of all hard work, to succeed in today's market place" said Calvin Younger, Senior Vice-President, CIBC Commercial Banking. "Companies winning this year's Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies exemplify these traits."
2009 winners of the Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies award, along with Requalified and Platinum Club members will be honoured at the annual Best Managed gala in Toronto on 8 March, 2010. On the same date, the Best Managed symposium will address leading-edge business issues that are key to the success of today's business leaders.
