Canadian Business unveils 30th annual list of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies
VANCOUVER, Sept. 13, 2018 /CNW/ - For the second year in a row, Canadian Business and Maclean's has ranked Optimus Information on the 30th annual Growth 500, the definitive ranking of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies. Produced by Canada's premier business and current affairs media brands, the Growth 500 ranks Canadian businesses on five-year revenue growth. Growth 500 winners are profiled in a special print issue of Canadian Business, published with Maclean's magazine and online at CanadianBusiness.com and Growth500.ca.
Foresight, Innovation and Smart Management are Key
"The companies on the 2018 Growth 500 are truly remarkable. Demonstrating foresight, innovation and smart management, their stories serve as a primer for how to build a successful entrepreneurial business today," says Deborah Aarts, Growth 500 program manager. "As we celebrate 30 years of the Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies program, it's encouraging to see that entrepreneurship is healthier than ever in this country."
"We are incredibly honoured to be on the Growth 500 ranking again," said Pankaj Agarwal, founder and managing partner of Optimus Information. "This is a testament to the continued commitment of our entire team, our partners and our customers. We are extremely focused on providing value through the products and solutions we offer, and will continue to listen and deliver on what our customers need."
Optimus Also Recognized Globally by International Association of Microsoft Partners (IAMCP)
In addition to being named a 2018 Growth 500 company, Optimus Information also recently won two prestigious awards at the 2018 Microsoft Inspire conference. Founder and managing partner Pankaj Agarwal was named a champion of diversity for his commitment to corporate gender diversity and STEM education for young girls. Optimus Information is one of only a handful of technology companies to have reached 50/50 gender parity across their corporation.
Optimus Information also took home the Canadian Bronze honour in the global category for partner-to-partner awards. This award recognized Optimus's work with Squirrel Systems as they moved their industry-leading hospitality and restaurant POS application from a legacy on-premises solution to the cloud. Because the application deployed so much of the latest thinking around mobility, analytics, AI and more, Microsoft is jointly working with Optimus and Squirrel to develop a formal case study for others to learn from.
"Our company continues to achieve year-over-year growth because we are laser-focused on helping our customers rapidly scale their own businesses," said Ryan O'Connor, chief technical strategist, Optimus Information. "We share the same vision as the partners and customers we work with and, therefore, our success is their success. This year, we've all had an amazing amount of success."
