2015 has been a big year for QuickLinkt so far. We’ve launched our referral management solution with over 10,000 real estate agents, released a new product – ClientLinkt, and been busy with significant feature upgrades to our platform. In recognition of this momentum, on May 14th we were awarded the Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Award for New Product And/Or Service.
The Business Excellence Awards (SABEX Awards) presented by the Chamber recognize businesses in the Saskatoon area that “have raised the standards for the community, industry at large and even the world in the quality of their products, services and economic and community contributions.” Businesses that are nominated for the awards go through a rigorous application process before finalists are chosen in eight different award categories. Finalist in each category are announced at a Nominee Reception, and winners are chosen at the annual Celebrate Success Gala.
In the New Product And/Or Service category, QuickLinkt was a finalist along with TCU Financial Group, Saskatoon Institute for Medical Simulation, SheNative Goods Inc and North Prairie Developments Ltd. With these companies spanning across a range of industries, the nominations displayed the diversity of the Saskatoon economy and how the Chamber supports organizations across industries.
For QuickLinkt, the nomination and award were exciting milestones. Not only was it rewarding to be recognized within the local community, but it was also exciting to represent the province’s growing tech industry at such a prestigious event. For company co-founder Dale Lemke, this year’s Celebrate Success Gal also served as a slight deja-vu – Dale won the award for New Product award back in 1996 with his company Display Systems International (you can see his Now & Then video here).
While there hasn’t been too much time to celebrate, we’d like to send a big congratulations to all of the SABEX award winners & nominees and thank the Chamber for their ongoing support.
