Every year we hear about various firms making PROFIT magazine’s annual list of 200 of Canada’s Fastest-Growing companies, and some are on the list year after year, witness iWeb, which has joined an exclusive group of 14 companies on this year’s ranking who have achieved at least five appearances on the list.
However, it was nice to see Innobec Technologies Inc., like iWeb, another Montreal company, make the list for the first time this year. With a growth of 365% in the last five years, Innobec, a mobile and web application developer specialized in custom software and information management systems, has made its way into the 24th annual PROFIT 200 list ranking Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies by five-year revenue growth.
“2011 will have been our most important year to date in terms of growth, with the signing of new major accounts and the acquisition of a web application development firm, we have reached several key strategic targets which continue to have a positive impact on our 2012 results,” says Stephane Rouleau, Innobec’s’s CEO, adding that the company has evolved significantly in five years. “Since day one, we’ve been building strong, sustainable relationships. Our mission is to position ourselves as a reliable partner for large North-American businesses who develop innovative software solutions.”
Part of Innobec’s recent growth is attributable to its Lithium platform, a multi-platform mobile development environment created by the Montreal firm.
“Lithium allows us to develop a mobile application once, then deploy it across all major platforms (iOS, Android and Blackberry), speeding up delivery and reducing development costs for our clients,” says Yves Forget, Innobec’s executive vice-president. “Innobec has become a one-stop-shop for custom software development. By combining web, mobile and application development, we look forward to expanding our footprint in the Canadian and U.S. markets.”
Founded in 2003 in Montreal, Innobec today employs over 50 people and specializes in the following sectors: education, engineering, retail and manufacturing, public and parapublic sectors (government) and medical research facilities.
