"Systems and Humans" - CMTek inaugurates its Innovation centre and... becomes Abilis Solutions!



    MONTREAL, March 19 /CNW Telbec/ - On March 17, CMTek hosted the IT and
local business community joined by government and city officials such as
  Mrs. Isabelle Hudon, President and CEO of the Board of Trade of Metropolitan
Montreal. CMTek, known as a leading edge IT integration company specialized in
the development of technological solutions for over twelve years, is proud to
announce the launch of its new Innovation Centre located at 1407 rue de la
Montagne Street in Montreal as well as the unveiling of its new corporate
identity; Abilis Solutions.
    "The significant growth in demands, particularly the delivery of turnkey
IT projects where client solutions are crafted in our Montreal offices, drives
us to increase our production capabilities" says Eric Le Goff, President and
CEO of Abilis Solutions. Our firm has recently signed a contract to deliver an
ERP for the State of Virginia, system that will require the efforts of a team
comprised of over 40 professionals on a full-time basis for the
next 24 months.
    "This project is a great example of the business model and competitive
edge of CMTek. Although we were competing against large renowned North
American firms, we won this important invitation to tender valued at 10M$
because of our engineering expertise coupled with our commitment to results
considering that this project is delivered at a flat rate" adds M. Alain
Elbaz, President and COO.
    CMTek, now Abilis Solutions, has established over the last decade a
business model comprised of the delivery of software solutions at a fix rate
within agreed timelines that is now a sound alternative for the large
companies to consider in lieu of outsourcing their IT operations.
    The creation of the Montreal Innovation centre will enable Abilis to
centralize the skills and expertise therefore promoting an exchange of
collective know-how and methodologies while optimizing the efficiency,
productivity and overall quality of the delivery.
    This approach contributes to maintaining a competitive edge when faced
with off-shore competition on development and integration projects. With 75%
of its business outside of Québec, Abilis is now seen by its customers as a
serious alternative when required to develop innovative software solutions
while keeping control over project costs and timelines.

    Etymology of Abilis Solutions: Innovation and Skills

    The new corporate identity of Abilis Solutions, is comprised of Abilis
meaning "the abilities (competencies and know-how of the team)" and Solutions
meaning "providing systems and technologies integration as well as designing
and developing problem solving turnkey applications 'on time and on budget'".
    "A change of name was paramount in order to set us apart from our
competitors. Our new identity allows us to clearly communicate the positioning
of the company and its core values, which remain present throughout our
accomplishments, thus sustaining the bond of trust with our clients and
business partners. Our ability to innovate emanates from the competencies of
our resources and their ability to invent" says Alain C. Courville,
vice-president, Marketing and communications.
    In conclusion, Abilis Solutions counts more than 100 employees and is
proud to currently cater to clients such Air Canada, Bell Canada, Yellow Pages
Group, the States of New York and Virginia, the London Stock Exchange and
Toyota Europe.
