CEA 2016 Best Cloud Solution Winners

Michel St-Andre of Orckestra accepts the Best Cloud Solution award from Eric Bender of Rogers

The Montreal-based Orckestra Inc. has been described by industry pundits as one of the best up-and-coming solution providers in the country. It is no surprise that Orckestra was awarded the Gold honor for Best Cloud Computing Solution at the 2016 Channel Elite Awards.

Orckestra created a cloud-based Unified Commerce platform that enables retailers to create a seamless, differentiating journey for their customers online, through mobile and in-store.

The Orckestra Commerce Cloud solution changed the game for Sports Experts, Quebec’s largest sporting goods retailer, and was built from the ground up. This cloud solution offered Sports Experts a fully loaded catalog and technical services that could be scaled as the location grew.

Michel St. Andre, the head of customer success program for Orckestra, said today, Sports Experts runs a modern, fully responsive, transactional Web site because of this solution.

CEA Bronze Winner

CDN Top 10 Solution Provider Insight Canada believes that quality is not an act, it’s a habit. The company has taken this approach in winning the Bronze award in this category. Insight Canada said they live by this mantra which infuses into their company’s infrastructure.

This organization’s cloud solution was designed to be consistent as customers average 20 per cent in cost savings and 32 per cent in reduced time. This cloud solution is so robust it can handle a large ERP system, but at its heart it releases the shackles of maintaining hardware infrastructure for the customer.
