OTTAWA, ON, July 4, 2018 – VigilantCS has been named a Top 25 Up and Coming ICT Company by the Branham Group Inc. for demonstrating innovation and promise.
The category is one of three major lists in the annual Branham300, now in its 25th year. Selected information and communications technology companies exhibit creativity and innovation in a new technology area or have optimized existing technology in an innovative way.
“Being named a Top 25 Up and Coming ICT Company by the Branham Group is another meaningful milestone for VigilantCS,” says CEO and Co-founder Rob Kirwin. “It reflects the efforts of our entire team to create innovative solutions that manage staff regulatory obligations, reducing risk and increasing efficiency.”
The Branham300 includes the Top 250 Canadian ICT Companies (ranked by total revenue generated) and the Top 25 ICT Multinational Companies (ranked by revenue generated in Canada). The Branham Top 25 Up and Coming list is the only Branham300 list not based on revenue. Branham tracks thousands of companies each year; it uses audited published financial statements for public companies and a submission process for private companies. Up and Coming firms are characterized as, “young Canadian companies Branham Group believes will be big hits soon.”
