VIPs visit SOTI
VIPs have visited SOTI HQ in Mississauga as well as our Research and Innovation Lab in Waterloo to learn more about how we are attracting Canadian tech talent, and continue to stay true to our innovation roots. Dignitaries of all levels of Government are taking notice that SOTI has doubled its revenue and headcount in the past two years, and is on track to double its research and development headcount in the near future.
We've been honoured with some great awards in the first half of the year and now, we're happy to add 5-Star Rating in the 2016 Partner Program Guide from The Channel Company. SOTI's Altitude Partner Program was introduced in 2014 and since then we've worked closely with our partners to educate, support and elevate them proving to increase their growth and success. We hope to make it a three-peat in 2017!
